Throughout this weekend I have met with a number of fascinating artists at Boston Comic-Con.  One of my favorite moments was meeting with Jason Deeble – a mild-mannered math teacher by day – who discussed his series Monster Haiku as well as his unique journey to becoming a self-published artist.

In the midst of a tour as a stay-at-home-dad, Deeble pursued his life-long passion for comics and produced an original and clever series about adorable monsters. Okay, well maybe 'adorable' isn't the right word but they definitely grow on you.  One of the best parts of his story is that he was given an offer from a major publisher but turned them down in favor of staying true to his passion. Rock on, dude.
