Speaker Information

John Auchter

John has the complete inability to eat a salad without getting all sorts of stuff stuck in between his teeth.... (Oh, not that personal.) Born in Pennsylvania, raised in South Carolina and Michigan, John started drawing comics when he was eight-years-old. He's married now (to his high-school sweetheart), has three beautiful children, two needy cats, and works as a technical communications specialist, but can still be found more often than not hunched over his drawing table.

John has a Bachelor of Science degree in Scientific and Technical Communications with a minor in Metallurgical Engineering from Michigan Technological University. This would be the proverbial "road less traveled" to a career in cartooning.

John’s cartoons have been stuck on refrigerators, office cubicles, and bulletin boards -- the highest award a cartoonist can hope for. He has drawn comics for various newspapers, magazines, companies, and websites. Primary clients: Grand Rapids Business Journal, Grand Rapids Press, MLive newspapers, MLive.com

Everybody can draw. John is living proof of this. Through practice and a willingness to take chances, he has taken a seed of meager artistic talent and grown it into a flourishing hibiscus of meager artistic talent.
