Zak Jarvis is an artist and writer living in San Diego. The ordering of Writer versus Artist is a daily struggle. He attended Viable Paradise X and learned how to work on his writing as hard as he does on his art. While he has worked professionally as a web designer, a game designer, and a mail-order clerk, it's art and writing that really get him going. His artwork has appeared in Spectrum (Not Only) Black + White, The World's Greatest Erotic Art of Today, and other publications. He is currently starting work on an eight-bit cyberpunk novel.
