Burton Durand is an art director / illustrator from Lafayette, LA and creator of Horse_eComics, a webcomic devoted to interpreting @Horse_ebooks tweets into comic strips.
Drawing from an early age, Burt went on to be a cartoonist in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's campus newspaper. In 2005 he started a career as a graphic designer and freelance illustrator. In late 2011, he had the silly idea to start drawing comics inspired by Twitter's most beloved spambot, @Horse_ebooks.
Burt's Horse_eComics have gotten nods from NYTimes.com, The Huffington Post, ComicsAlliance, Gawker, Splitsider, Buzzfeed and more!
