Jason ArnoldCreative Lead
Illustration and graphic design elements for the Knowledge Atlas have kept Jason happily engaged in a project that is both fulfilling and immensely promising as a human endeavour. With nearly a decade of professional experience and a lifetime of practice in the visual arts, Jason hopes to make an intrinsically gratifying experience all the more pleasant for its community. The graphic novel being his proudest contribution, he hopes it acts as a warm invitation and comprehensive introduction to the Knowledge Atlas.
Mike CampbellSenior DesignerThere are many positive things that Mike has achieved through reading comics his entire life, contributing to the Knowledge Atlas graphic novel not being the least of these. His passion has made him pursue fine arts training in Ottawa. He also produces and hosts two radio programs (Where Monsters Dwell & Listen to Jimmy with Jimmy Palmiotti) that focus mainly on the comics art form. In fact, reading comics from an early age has left him only one regret: his proposal to defeat global warming using the Ultimate Nullifier.
Stephen GilbertCommunity Development ConsultantStephen has been building online communities since his work with a very young Wikipedia in 2001. His work with Knowledge Atlas focuses on creating a collaborative environment that attracts and maintains an active and healthy community of contributors. He is excited about the potential of Knowledge Atlas as a learning and teaching environment, and he hopes to avoid making meta-comments about referring to himself in the third person. Oops.
