Originally from East Tennessee, Adam Fotos is a Chicago-based comics artist, and the creator of Dragon and Goat. He began D&G as a daily comic strip over a decade ago at the University of Tennessee’s newspaper, The Daily Beacon. The comic ran for a year, five days a week, and then Dragon and Goat followed Adam to Shenzhen, China where they appeared in a full color weekly English language newspaper run by the Shenzhen Daily.
The following year Dragon and Goat debuted in the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s Daily Illini where it continued to run for four years. Adam took a hiatus from D&G to begin the webcomic Cloud Arcadia, while working on his first graphic novel The Panopticorn, about a small town farmer in Southern Illinois. In March of 2013, Adam’s moving comic work Shostakovich Underground was featured in a performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Fotos currently teaches comics and art at Chicago State University and the College of DuPage and his art can be seen at adamfotos.com.
