About the Artist

My name is Chris Shehan, but you may know me as ZhouRules as well. I was born in 1990 and have been drawing as long as I remember. In 2006 I discovered digital painting and got my first tablet (Wacom Graphire) and it became a big part of my artistic toolbox. With digital art growing in popularity and becoming the industry standard for creating artwork, I jumped on it quick and has become a main part of my work, though I don't limit myself to that medium. In 2009 I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen few to be mentored by Ryan Benjamin (Batman Beyond) for a few weeks where I learned a lot. In 2010 I got my first job on a comic book series called Hell Paso, written by Jaime Portillo. I pencilled and inked all of issue 5 of that series and I helped ink and color issue 6. In 2011 I had the opportunity to be mentored by Robert Atkins (GI Joe) who taught me a lot about breaking into the comic industry and gave me in-depth critiques on my work. In 2016 I became a FULL-TIME comic artist where I plan on staying for as long as I can! Keep an eye out for my work at your Local Comic Shop!
