Gavin Aung Than is a cartoonist based in Melbourne, Australia, and is the author of Zen Pencils (Andrews McMeel, 2014). Having a background in graphic design, he had always dreamed of being a professional cartoonist but never had the guts to commit to it 100%. Finally, after being completely unfulfilled after working for “The Man” for eight years, he quit his job, sold his house, launched Zen Pencils and hasn’t looked back since.
Zen Pencils has been featured by The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Slate, Upworthy, Buzzfeed, The A.V. Club, News.com.au, ProBlogger, and The Design Files.
