Chris Sharron began his career by drawing cartoons and illustrations for his college newspaper, The Daily Kent Stater, and he has been ever since. Over this time, cartooning has taken him to many interesting places and allowed him the opportunity to meet some pretty great people. Most importantly, it has given him a way of sharing his ideas with the world.
As he enters his last few months at Kent State University, Chris looks forward to new challenges, new ideas and new things to say. He will continue to learn and to better his craft in the hopes that he will also find new and better ways to say them.
