Michael DeForge was born in 1987 in Ottawa. He currently lives and works in Toronto as a cartoonist, commercial illustrator and designer for the hit Cartoon Network program Adventure Time. Past illustration clients include The Believer, Vice, New York Times Magazine, and The Walrus. His one-person anthology series Lose has received great critical and commercial success and is published by Koyama Press. Lose #1 won in the Best Emerging Talent category at the 2010 Doug Wright Awards, and Lose #3 won the 2011 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Comic. Lose #4 was released in Spring 2012, and the fifth instalment is slated for Fall 2013. His web comic strip Ant Comic is serialized weekly and will be collected into a graphic novel by Drawn and Quarterly upon its completion. DeForge' work blends an encyclopaedic knowledge of cartooning with a range of influences that include Jack Kirby, Eduardo Munoz Bachs, Mark Newgarden, and Hideshi Hino.
