Aron Nels Steinke began drawing comics in 2006 with the help of a grant from the Xeric Foundation. Steinke's all-ages graphic novel, Neptune, first published in 2009 by Sparkplug Comic Books and Tugboat Press, was selected as a notable book in the 2011 edition of Best American Comics published by Houghton Mifflin, and published in France by publisher, ditions C et L,. Steinke has published two early-reader children's books with Blue Apple Books, The Super Crazy Cat Dance, and it's companion, The Super-Duper Dog Park. The latter was chosen as a Publisher's Weekly honorable mention for the Best Comics of 2011. A 360-page collection of his mini-comics entitled, Big Plans The Collected Mini-Comics and More was published last year by Portland's Bridge City comics. Steinke teaches 1st and 2nd grade in North Portland and makes a weekly comic strip called, Mr. Wolf, about his experiences as a teacher.
