Short biography
Joe Chiappetta is an American author and cartoonist, grateful to be married with three children. Currently living in Illinois, his formal education was from Northern Illinois University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with an emphasis in painting.
While trained in the more traditional arts, his lifetime creative focus has been in writing and cartooning. As one of the key members of the Independent Comics Movement of the 1990s, Chiappetta’s work is respected around the globe. He is best known as the man behind one of the longest running autobiographical comics, SILLY DADDY, which has been a rewarding creative endeavor since 1991. The series has received the following professional recognition: Xeric Award Winner, Ignatz Award Nominee for Outstanding Story, and Harvey Award Nominee for Best New Series. 

Joe is also the author of a number of action-packed and thought-provoking Christian sci-fi novels, most notably: Star Chosen (2010). From his work, one can tell that he enjoys spending time with God, family, science fiction, and corny jokes. Also, at a moment's notice, he's usually up for a Bible study, a good game of chess, bike riding, building forts in the woods, wrestling, finding a big score of free samples while grocery shopping, and foam sword fighting.
