Bio:
Jill Thompson is an American comic book illustrator and creator and graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. She has been professionally illustrating comic books the majority of her life. She would not have it any other way. She has illustrated comic books and graphic novels for Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, Harper Collins, Marvel Comics, Sirius Entertainment, Vertigo Comics. She has collaborated with George Perez on Wonder Woman, Neil Gaiman on Sandman, Grant Morrison on The Invisibles, Will Pfeifer on Finals, Evan Dorkin on Beasts of Burden and WWE Wrestling Legend Mick Foley on Halloween Hijinx and Tales from Wrescal Lane.

She is best known for her own creations THE SCARY GODMOTHER and MAGIC TRIXIE! Some of the other works she has written and Illustrated include The Little Endless Storybook, Delirium’s Party, 2003’s best selling manga style book- Death: At Death’s Door and The Dead Boy Detectives.

Many of her comics have been translated into German, French, Portugese, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Danish and Korean language editions.

Jill is a multiple Eisner Award winning illustrator and was awarded the 2011 Reuben Award for Best Comic Book Artist for Beasts of Burden.

In 2001 Jill collaborated with Runamuck Productions to bring her creation The Scary Godmother to the stage for a successful run of 26 performances at the Athanaeum Theater. Working to create children’s theater was a richly rewarding experience that found Jill lending her skills in adapting and co-writing the play as well as working as art director and set designer on the production.

The Scary Godmother was adapted for television by Mainframe Entertainment as two holiday specials, The Scary Godmother Holiday Spooktakular and Scary Godmother-The Revenge of Jimmy. Jill spent her time juggling duties as co-writer, editor, art director, background painter, prop and character designer, executive creative director, creative consultation, and executive producer over the course of both productions. She found it incredibly rewarding to work so closely with the director and the animation team to bring her creation to television life!

Jill spends her non comic book creating hours trying to be more organized, cooking delicious things, making jewelry, riding her bike, training at Forteza Fitness, gardening, travelling to conventions and book signings, watching wrestling and designing wrestling gear for WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan.
