Hello, my name is Bernie McGovern. I am a puppet designer, illustrator, and comics artist living in Chicago. My recent work includes the autobiographical comic book DemonTears. Visit the Press for Bernie page to read some reviews and interviews! I have been writing, drawing, and self-publishing an epic, lengthy comic book called An Army of Lovers will be Beaten for six years! Want to read it? Visit the Storefront! Book 7 is in the making this Fall. My puppet designs have appeared in plays by Actors Theatre of Louisville, The Neo-Futurists of Chicago, The Hypocrites, Dog & Pony, Sanculottes, and Drinking & Writing Theater. Want to follow my explorations through the creative process? Read DemonDust! It’s my almost-accurate, autobiographic, monthly mini-comic ‘zine. You can subscribe by visiting my storefront, email me for back-issues, or you can track them down through Quimby’s book store in Chicago. I am also an artist-in-residence with the not-for-profit, Snow City Arts Foundation. We bring arts-education to hospitalized children while they are missing school. Current student projects include cartooning, CGI design, and animation.
