Comic creator for more than 2 dozen publishers on more than 30 titles, I've been at this for a while now. Until recently a partner at Hamtramck Idea Men (H!M), my work there covered all genres in a variety of styles. Financial woes caused the demise of the partnership, but that is far from my only collaborative experience (insufficient room here to cover all) Please contact for further info. Currently seeking new collaborations & publishers for some of my existing concepts. Hope to hear from you re: work. Thank you George (GeoMc) McVey

My name is Zachary Ingwaldson. Recently, I returned to the Roseville/Rocklin area after 10 years of traveling throughout North America. I was born and raised in Oakland, CA, but have since lived in multiple destinations ranging from Arizona, South Carolina, and Alaska, among others. The traveling experience and the Military allowed me to encounter numerous cultures and appreciate their variety and value, including my own. I am a Business Finance major, avid researcher, reader, and writer. I have contributed in creative development for various magazines, small businesses, and law firms. I have had the honor and pleasure to work on fighter jets, create and perform with talented musicians, and participate as a board member for a nonprofit organization; however, my most valued, foremost endeavor, and treasure is raising my three children. I love the experience of life as well as learning and unfolding the experiences of others. Life is about evolving, not revolving. I look forward to working with you in a professional and creative manner.
