About the artist:
Will Caron holds a BA in fine art from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a minor in creative writing. He is a journalist, magazine editor, community organizer and activist, and a cartoonist and illustrator and his artwork/cartooning reflects a passion for progressivism, critical analysis and critique of the current socioeconomic system and an over-reliance on pop culture and dad jokes. He spends most of his time writing about and advocating for social, economic and environmental justice at the Hawaii State Legislature and Honolulu City Hall, and has trouble making time for his artwork because, “Shit be whack, yo.” This means that having chances to draw comics for collaborative efforts like WASP is especially valuable and rewarding for him.
