Creating art under the neon lights of the Duke City – Carlos Vigil and Bryan Rountree attended school and grew up together in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In the 7th grade Carlos and Bryan began writing and illustrating a comic strip entitled “Woozle and Lorax” which chronicles the story of two little aliens who crash-land their space cruiser in Roswell, New Mexico and soon find themselves employed by a used car salesman.
An award-winning comic strip, Woozle and Lorax was published in Carlos and Bryan’s school newspaper throughout their high school years. Pursuing arts educations in college, both Carlos and Bryan have Bachelors in Fine Arts degrees – Carlos from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and Bryan from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
In 2014 Carlos and Bryan began professionally pursuing new endeavors starring their original comic characters, and have self-published much of their classic work into a single collection, as well as premiered new, never-before-seen work.
Presented under the Ok Comics label, Carlos and Bryan currently exhibit, market, and sell their comics at indie, small press, and comic events across the U.S. – including the Small Press Expo, Bmore Into Comics, Baltimore Comic Con, Bubonicon, and the Albuquerque Comic Con. Their comic books, geared toward an all-ages audience, have also been collected and archived as part of the library of congress.
When not collaborating on comics, Carlos works under the moniker Super Rad Design – tackling freelance illustration and graphic design challenges with clients across the country, while Bryan hones his on-demand print, and graphic design skills for Burbank-based printer Printing Matters.
