Sarah Schanze is an artist and designer located in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. As an ex-Military Brat she’s lived on both sides of the American coast, and even a bit outside of them. For more than a decade Sarah has worked in the educational technology industry, honing her skills in illustration, UX/UI design, and mobile-friendly, accessible design.

Since 2009 Sarah has been updating Thistil Mistil Kistil, a webcomic about vikings and Norse mythology. Her passion for comics has only increased since its start, and she does her best to keep a steady update schedule and maintain personal discipline. She has plenty of ideas for more comics down the line.
