Steven Sanders has over a decade of professional experience in the illustration field. He has drawn a number of comics for Marvel and Image, and has produced ad work and video games for a number of large companies. In 2007 he made the first comic book in the western hemisphere made for cell phones; Thunder Road with Sean Demory.
He is an engineer who realized he wasn't good at math and decided to fall back on art. He reads copious amounts of literature on medicine, engineering, biology, neurochemistry, foundry and machine shop work, radio theory, aeronautics and rocketry, philosophy, esoteric magical traditions, world history... anything he can get his hands on.
He uses all of this to inform his work and make it as real (or real-seeming) as possible.
