Patt Kelley was born with a crayon in his hand, and has been drawing ever since he gained the manual dexterity to do so. (The doctors still have no idea where the crayon came from). He made his first comic book in high school. It wasn’t very good. After graduating he earned a BFA in illustration from the Massachusetts College of Art and persued a career as a freelance illustrator. Since then his work has appeared in various publications, art galleries, and one museum.
He lives in Boston with his wife as well as a dog and a cat. (both of whom appear in much of his work.)
