Gary Marks, the creator of the web comic rm-r comic (http://rm-r-comic.com), is originally from Chicago but currently resides in Colorado. His inspiration is drawn from the daily joys of software development and office culture. He is the house slave to two cats, and small school of fish. When not working on his web comic, he is often building crazy inventions like the cast iron/computer fan humidifier, hat stand sun umbrella, and recycled sock oven mitt. All of his comic work is now done digitally in GIMP, so if you have questions about that, please feel free to ask him when you visit his booth.
