E.J. BARNES (Amherst, NH) www.ejbarnes.com

E. J. Barnes is a cartoonist, illustrator, and animator in the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts. Although a bachelor's degree in Chemistry and a total of 16 years in software engineering are not the usual route to a cartooning career, Barnes feels that she is a better artist for having been a programmer — and a better programmer for having been an artist. She organizes the monthly Pioneer Valley Comic & Cartoon Schmooze. She sings on her own soundtracks. She writes her own webpage code. And she also still, occasionally, plays the fiddle.
