Here is a nice bio written by a ten-year-old girl at the summer camp I worked at:
Imagine a world of comics and lots of things created from thought. Well, that’s how Sam Tung sees it, the comic guy, Explo’s hero. Is it not interesting to imagine being able to see something one minute and have it show up on a piece of paper the next? That is how Sam Tung is. But Sam Tung does not have to imagine. He can just do it on a piece of paper.
After Sam Tung studied comics in his college, he went to Los Angeles to find a job for comics so his work could be seen by many people. In his eyes, comics seem to be moving across the paper filled with ink of many colors. Sam brings lots of his great designs to Explo’s campus when needed. He also performed at the staff talent show as Explo’s own amazing hero artist. There are many interesting facts about Sam, so if you would like to know more, just ask him!
Here is a bio I wrote:
My name is Sam Tung and am a writer and artist living in Los Angeles, California. I draw perpetually, learn quickly and play well with others. I am pursuing a career in comics and animation, and it would be great if you hired me so that I could eat.
