Character Bio: Street Mix

Michele Wrigley
Freshman
Major: Studio Art

Micki is an aspiring cartoonist, which is one of those traits with which cartoonists saddle their protagonists because their lives are so sadly circumscribed that they can't think of any more interesting or rewarding goals. This is also why you see a lot of novels about people who want to be novelists, and a lot of films about sociopathic killers. Micki is a member of the campus patrol, a job which requires her to wander around campus with a Mag-Lite accomplishing nothing useful.

She draws comic strips for the college newspaper, the Smithson Courant. Both of these pursuits bring her into regular contact with Smithson's resident superhero, who also seems to be pretty useless, albeit in a much flashier way. Despite her general floundering, Micki has already acquired most of the key accessories for campus life: a hopeless crush, a roommate who's much cooler than she is, a schedule that doesn't include sleep, and a haircut she'll probably live to regret.

Roger LangridgeRoger Langridge (special art sequences) was born in New Zealand in 1967. He decided to become a cartoonist when he was six years old; for some reason it stuck (perhaps because it was more attainable than his previous career goal of "mad scientist"). Roger drew a lot of comics with his brother Andrew when he was growing up. Eventually one of these evolved into Art Dekko (later "Art d'Ecco"), which was his first minicomic, in 1988. And things sort of rolled on from there ... Roger moved to London in 1990 to try and go professional, and somehow got lucky. He now lives there with his wife Sylvie, their daughter Tamsin and somebody else's cat.

Robert StevensonBob Stevenson (Chapter 1 Page 1 - Chapter 3 Page 24) has refused to draw on the right side of the brain since someone taught him that brains have sides. Instead, he wanders the globe posing as a teacher. In private, he pushes lead, charcoal, ink and pixels whenever opportunities present themselves.
