I’m Dylan Meconis,
a cartoonist, writer and illustrator living in Portland, Oregon.
(Meconis is pronounced “Meh-KO-niss” and Oregon is pronounced “ORE-uh-gun.”)
I studied history and literature at Wesleyan University. My career as a professional comics artist began in college with the online publication of my first book, Bite Me!.
I spent several years as a visual communications consultant and designer for before embarking on a full-time freelance and publishing career.
In 2012 my short story Outfoxed was nominated for an Eisner Award in the category of Best Digital Comic, and in 2014 Family Man was nominated for a Reuben Award in the category of Best Digital Comic – Longform.
My current project is a middle-grade graphic novel titled Queen of the Sea, forthcoming from Abrams in 2018.

When I’m not at the studio, I live in Portland with my wife, the attorney and speaker Katie Lane.
