Kate Beaton began her webcomic Hark! A Vagrant in 2007, and her collection by that title debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in 2011. Her work has been featured in the New Yorker, Harper's, and The Best American Comics Anthology. Kate says the best birthday present she ever received was a pair of shoes with paint splat designs on them, like a real artist might have. She lives in Toronto.
