Matt Furie is an artist, illustrator and children’s book author. He’s best known for his character Pepe, a fun-loving stoner frog from his comic Boy’s Club, who has become a ubiquitous internet meme. In 2012, McSweeney’s published Furie’s first children’s book, The Night Riders, a wordless tale about the adventures of two best friends, a frog and a rat. He’s currently based in California, USA.
Matt Furie have a stand in the Comic Village together with his wife Aiyana Udesen. They will do drawings and signings all weekend. On Staurday 12-13 you can meet them in a Q&A panel at Stage 2.
Aiyana Udesen is based in California, and is known for her dedication to encapsulating her favorite scenes from science fiction and horror. Her tools of choice are paper, pencil, colored pencil, and the unpredictably provocative rainbow pencil. Her series of how-to-draw books have delighted and confused many, and feature portraits that range from: otters, to Terminators, to Termin-otters. When Aiyana is not watching Star Trek and scribbling away, you can find her on the phone with a gigantic law firm, trying to figure out how to save her husband’s notorious and infamous cartoon frog from taking over the internet and the world.
