Cherish Springer is originally from Ogden, Utah, where they created their first adventure-driven comics at the age of 5. While “Funny Bunny” did not turn out to be a career starting endeavour, Springer chose to make drawing and storytelling a full time pursuit and got their BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
Springer is now a painter, illustrator, doll maker, and math teacher.
Springer’s work is strongly influenced by their experiences growing up as an outsider in a strict religious community. The process of drawing quickly became a form of escapism. This is reflected in their work through strong themes of adventure and exploration. Springer expresses these themes through constant material and narrative experimentation: resulting in comics, paintings, drawings, and 3D work. Springer hopes to continue sharing their experiences through increasingly immersive projects.
