Mentor:
Gustav Carlson

Mentor Bio:
Initially hailing from a goat farm deep in the Ozarks, Gustav Carlson now lives in Fayetteville as a full-time comic creator and freelance illustrator. He has written and illustrated  two comics, Eve of the Ozarks and Backwood Folk, set in and around a fictionalized version of the Ozarks. Now he creates a universe spanning sci-fi comic called Tourist Unknown. His work can also be found animated in the documentaries Natural State of America and the Night the Blackbirds Fell. He'd tell you what he's up to when he's not drawing monsters of some sort or another, but he's found there really isn't any other kind of time.
