- Location / Hotels
Jeff Pina moved to Phoenix 12 years ago from La Quinta, CA. He met his wife, Tricia, in college and she supported him in launching his first book, Dr. Oblivion’s Guide to Teenage Dating in late 2005. He has been making comics since. Jeff does the art chores on the weekly web comic Drunk-Robot with collaborator Brian Powell. He also has two other self-published series Imaginatives and Monkey in Space that he fits into his schedule.
To focus showcasing local talent, Jeff worked as project coordinator for Fiction House Mafia's “Heart” anthologies. He has also done artwork for Hasbro Games, sketch cards for 5finity, as well as freelance work in the local Phoenix market.
As an eighties kid, Jeff was thrilled to be published in Voltron: United and Drawn. He has also done variant cover art for Big Dog Ink's Critter and worked with Micheal Kessler in Spazdog Press' Smiths: Unite and Take Over.
Sometimes in-between all this he sleeps or watches Star Trek. At some time during this show he won't be at his table, because he'll be getting signatures from all the Star Trek Guests.
