About the Artists

Alex Chechik grew up in Toronto, Canada and studied animation at Sheridan College in Ontario. His favorite book as a kid was The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess, and his favorite artist today is Gustav Klimt. As a kid he would wander off to explore the city by myself and not tell anyone. The worry turned his parents’ hair grey. Alex’s work can also be found at

Nate SwinehartNate Swinehart rode in from the rugged wilds of Columbus, Ohio with a tablet pen in his left hand and a Rock Band mic in his right. He was raised by a family of athletes but studied animation, illustration and theater. After sampling the living conditions of Japan, Alaska and the marshes of Savannah, he happily acclimated to JibJab headquarters in Venice Beach. Nate enjoys video games, playing piano and singing, loudly. He’s the proud uncle of four, and excited to make cool stories for them.
