meet THE CARTOONIST!
Tanner Riche was born in St John, NB, Canada in 1999 and grew up on Deer Island, NB, Canada most of his life. In 2006 he started reading the local paper's comics section and thought it would be fun to use the title of the strips but add his own art. And from here the cartooning snowball started. He found a passion for art and comic strips and decided in 2007 he would create one of his own (Tanner and Casey)!
He and his parents moved to the mainland, St George, NB, Canada when Tanner was 11 in June of Summer 2011. Here he really belted out the art. He is a published author with many books sold, and has sold multiple paintings across Canada and into the United States. His journalism work has appeared in newspapers and on television. He is a volunteer at CHCOtv in St. Andrews and has his own talk show in the works.
Today, 20 year old Tanner, alongside a love for painting, writing, and creating things, is top notch with Tanner and Casey and loves to make people laugh - a goal he faces each day!
