Oklahoman, SVA-grad and co-founder of the Meathaus comics collective, Farel Dalrymple will be a special guest at PIX 2014! He made a name for himself a decade ago as the creator of the widely admired and highly influential series Pop Gun War. Since then he has kept busy producing his own original work for a wide range of anthologies published by Dark Horse Comics and many others, as well as serving as the artist on a number of comic book series, most notably the ten-issue revival of Omega The Unknown written by award winning author and MacArthur Fellow, Jonathan Lethem. He has just completed work on his long anticipated epic graphic novel, Wrenchies, which will be published this fall by First Second.
