As a boy growing up in New Jersey and carrying his sketchbook with him wherever he went, it was said that Christian Slade sometimes lived in another world. It was this other world within the pages of his sketchbook that made him obsessed with drawing from his imagination and the world around him. After 30 years, not much has changed. A former Disney animator, and currently full-time freelance illustrator, Christian has gifted us with his very first all-ages graphic novel series, entitled Korgi -- a gorgeously illustrated woodland fantasy about a young girl Ivy, and her korgi, Sprout. Christian lives in Orlando, Florida with his wife Ann and their two welsh corgis Penny and Leo.
