Mindy “Madsniper” Timpone

Writer and Illustrator

I live in Dayton Ohio.

I am 28 years old, I have a fairly useless degree in illustration, and I spend my time looking for work, writing, making comics, and learning to play the violin.

I enjoy stories, reading and writing them. I guess that’s why illustration, and more specifically comics, appeal to me, because they’re all about getting a story across to the viewer. My favorite part of the comic process is figuring out the layout of a page, seeing how the script will translate into panels, how the characters will sell it. I also really enjoy expressions, and I’m always trying to get better at them.

I do not have a day job at this time. My big project is my webcomic, White Noise, which you can read at http://www.wncomic.com/. I started it in 2004, and it’s on-going. I expect to be working on it for at least the next 8 years. My first comic was The Welcome Committee of Magic High. I never got very far with that one, which is a shame, because it was pretty popular right off the bat.

I have no idea when I’ll get done with White Noise. Any future endeavors really depends on that first. But I do have a few ideas, mostly epic fantasy types. I might do these all as novels though and never bother with this webcomic business again.

I’d love my stories to be my job, in whatever way they might. That’s my goal.
