Sean Dempsey (he/him)


Sean graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Sequential Art. His independent comics focus on curiosity and adventure through traveling or misfit characters. Whether in a comic, illustration, or cartoon, Sean’s stories embrace a balance of innocent and cynical protagonists. He hopes to create diverse, relatable characters that the audience can witness their inner growth, discovery, and individuality.

Sean is a sequential artist who makes comics using experimental and alternative formats. Many of his books are mini-comics that are crafted by hand. He employs a variety of tools to create these pieces; traditional pen and ink, watercolor, digital coloring, and screen printing. His post-production techniques also vary from saddle-stitching to single-page fold to accordion fold. The tactical quantities of his books are really important to him, like the touch of raw canvas covers or the detailed form of a die cut cardstock.
