David Willis is no stranger to the world of webcomics, having started his first series, Roomies!, in 1997. Including Roomies!, he has four webcomics series under his belt, such as the sci-fi drama It's Walky!, its more domestic sequel Joyce and Walky!, and Shortpacked!, a look at action figures and pop culture. In 2005, he and other leading cartoonists formed the webcomics collective Blank Label Comics.
Today, he draws both Shortpacked! and Dumbing of Age, a new webcomic about college freshmen.
Raised in La Porte, Indiana, David Willis graduated from the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, Illinois with a Bachelor in Fine Arts.
After college, he escaped the frighteningly-empty cornfields and hicks of Indiana to the frighteningly-empty cornfields and hicks of Ohio.
David Willis currently resides with his wife Maggie in Columbus, Ohio, where he surrounds himself with more Transformers toys than he can bother to count.
