Frankie Franco III, or “frak,” as he is sometimes called,  is a storyboard artist based in Vancouver British Columbia. When he isn’t drawing quirky things or admiring all the puns the world has to offer, you can find him being an overly enthusiastic Cat dad on the hunt for a cafe that does a good pour-over.

John Noe

He also hasn’t given us a photo, so this is the one he gets for now until he does.

Adam Molina


Adam is a Boston-based writer you can usually find drooling over new gadgets on the internet or re-reading the Harry Potter series.
