THE STORY: Two thieving street urchins bite off more than they can chew and must decide what’s more important – stolen loot, or each other.

THE STORYTELLER: Sean Mac is a cartoonist and illustrator in Chicago. He loves creating fun stories about colorful characters and printing them using a risograph. He’s a big fan of the Punky DIY way of creating zines, and mini comics and sharing them anyway imaginable. He also enjoys creating cute and fluffy stories as well as creepy and crunchy stories. Monsters and skeletons alongside chubby bears and little Nubby boys. He hopes with his work to create a giggle, smile, or excitement with finely crafted, and expressive risograph printed books.
