Hello, I'm Joan Cooke, longtime lover and creator of comics.
Joan Cooke is a passionate artist that takes the comic world seriously. She has even resisted the smell of a warm, fresh baked batch of cinnamon rolls just to finish a page on a deadline. That's dedication. Using sequential art as her artistic medium, Joan has made endearing characters and engaging educational material.
Joan keeps herself busy by working on art commissions and the collaborative webcomic PhD Unknown. A long devoted fan of all things nerd, you can find Joan at convention artist alleys, with tons of prints, stickers, and witty commentary.
