About Everyman Studios

Everyman Studios artists, April 1976 The ARG! Cartoon Animation studio was founded by Artie Romero. Starting in high school in the 1960s, he's always been a cartoonist and comic book artist. Publishing held a magical appeal for Artie. He studied fine art and illustration in college, and kept drawing and publishing.

In 1973, Artie was a founding member of the artists' co-op Everyman Studios in Colorado Springs, along with Darrel Anderson, Rick Berry, Tom Haber and Kirk Kennedy. Everyman published an underground/alternative newspaper, The Everyman Flyer, in 1974 and 1975. They included original comics in every issue.

In 1976, Artie started editing and publishing alternative comic books (underground comix) with the Everyman Comics imprint. He published dozens of minicomics, various large format underground comix including Animal Bite Comix and Realm, tabloids such as Everyman Comics, Scrabbits Reno Comics and Scrabbis Treno, and a successful alternative comics journal, Cascade Comix Monthly. At first the core artists of Everyman Studios, including those listed above plus John Peterson and Allan Greenier, drew most of the comics. After Cascade was launched, Artie Romero circa 1980 Artie was able to include work from a worldwide pool of talent, including Spain Rodriquez, S. Clay Wilson, Denis Kitchen, Skip Williamson, Larry Rippee, Doug Hansen, George Erling, J. Michael Leonard, Ted Richards, and England's Hunt Emerson.

Everyman was always a labor of love, successful only by the standards of the small press. Artie moved away from printing and publishing in 1981, after he fell in love with the art of animation. Everyman Studios became an animation studio, and it was renamed ARG! Cartoon Animation in 1994. For more details, check out Artie Romero's personal site.
