Origin Story[]

Stephan Petersen is a native of Kitchener, Ontario and a graduate of the Comic Design and Scripting Program at Mohawk College. Stephan also attended Sheridan for their 3-year Visual Arts Program and the University of Waterloo where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree; but Stephan always found his true passion to be in comics.

While still attending University, Stephan was hired by Flying Saucer Productions to do the artwork for "Paroxysms of Caesars". He worked with writer Alan Lawless for a little over a year before pursuing other opportunities. 

Stephan has worked in various roles including a stint with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a Junior Graphic Designer. He has done everything from web graphics to animation assets, comic illustrations, media manipulation and continues to work as a storyboard artist for Arc Media. In 2015, Stephan joined With Pen and Brush Studios and has attended numerous conventions as part of the group. 

In July of 2017, Stephan helped launch TriCity Studio alongside fellow artists Kyle Barnett and Jason Ward. In August of the same year, Stephan's entry for his creator owned material "Thin Ice" was recognized as a top 5 finalist in Pulsar Entertainment's Comic Creator Talent Hunt contest.

Stephan is currently working on a few projects including page layouts for "Helz' Diner" and is doing the artwork for "Project: I.M.P.A.C.T" which is due to come out later in 2018.
