Grant Newbold is an Arizona based comic artist and illustrator. He studied at the University of Arizona and received a degree in Visual Communications Illustration. His comics feature extremely expressive and animated characters, over the top action, and a fun sense of humor. He draws inspiration from both anime and western cartoons along with the adventures (and misadventures) of his life. His current comic, A Magical Girl's Day Off, is an action-comedy about a magical hero as she tries her best to avoid doing her job as everything seems to conspire against her to make her save the day! Along with working on other comic projects, Grant enjoys reading his large collection of comics and manga, watching anime, going swimming, bad-movie nights with friends, and frequenting zoos and aquariums.
