Eraklis Petmezas graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design witha BFA in Illustration. In the years to follow he created art for numerous musical acts and quite a number of editorial illustrations, storyboards, window displays and many pages of comic art. He's had work published by Image comics, Arcana, and Asylum Press. His first love will always be telling stories. He is working on new comics as you read this. In 2006 he started Sketch Charlotte, a weekly meeting of artists, musicians, designers and writers in the Charlotte area. That same year he joined 803 Studios; an art collective out of South Carolina. When he’s not drawing he conducts a Comics Camp for the Imaginon Library. He will gladly accept money in exchange for art, if you are willing to part with some.
