Stan Yan grew up in Denver, Colorado and went to school at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he got his bachelor's degree in accounting. Due to the lack of sex-for-recruiting for accounting students, Yan's life took the tragic turn into sales for the securities industry, where he wallowed in ethical poverty on-and-off for thirteen years. Yan takes his frustrations out by penning graphic novels such as The Wang. In 2005, Yan has gave up on financial security and become a full-time freelance cartoonist, illustrating SubCulture for Ape Entertaiment, creating comic strips for the financial and sales industry, drawing zombie caricatures, and picking up odd illustration and teaching jobs when folks are feeling agonizing pity for him. Stan now teaches Summer camps, after school programs, workshops, and is helping to develop a degree program in graphic storytelling as an adjunct faculty member at the Community College of Aurora. He also continues to illustrate the SubCulture webstrip, and write and color the REVVVelations webstrip. Recent credits include illustrating the comic book The Adventures of Health Team 4 for Kaiser Permanente, writing Vincent Price Presents #34 for Bluewater Productions, and Yan is currently working on a comic book for the Melting Pot restaurant.
