Cartoonist. Writer. Artist. Doofus. The Thin Man Film Obsessive.

J. ROBERT DEANS (the "J" is silent) has doodled all of his life. During a nearly ten-year career selling comics, he started drawing them with CRASS FED, a webcomic featuring his signature sense of humor. After being laid off, a silly idea struck: a cow lost in space. That idea became MOO THOUSAND AND PUN, which was the first in the Shakes the Cow series of children’s picture books. Spy adventures for young readers followed with the BEAR FROM AUNT graphic novel series. Deans also collaborates on comics, books and toys with his wife and Kidlet for their Deans Family Productions.
