Don Kuehn colors David Reddick’s awesome webcomic, The Legend of Bill, with little or no help from his dog and two cats. He originally wanted to get into an art career, but the siren’s song of the computer pulled him towards programming. Soon he discovered Computer Aided Design (CAD) and spent the next ten years doing programming and CAD work, which eventually led him to one day usurp control of the corporate network (more or less). While not performing his day job (Manager of Information Services – aka Overseer of all things digital – computers, programming, network, etc.) at a manufacturing company that makes test equipment for foundries and steel mills, he can usually be found within arm’s reach of a computer.
He has also been known to ride his bike to work, crawl through caves, go white water rafting, canoe in the boundary waters, go camping and has just recently started geocaching. His indoor hobbies include, but are not limited to, computer programming, art, photography, video games, board games and when not doing all that other stuff. He also studies martial arts and likes to spend time with his two kids.
This is his first foray into the world of webcomics.
