Shaun Beyale is Navajo. He grew up without electricity or running water, so watching television or listening to a cd was not an option. He entertained himself by reading comic books, and the comic book genre has influenced his art. Ayla is the super hero in Shaun’s comic book: Ayla, The Monster Slayer, a futuristic, post-apocalyptic story set in the southwestern United States. Shaun lives in Arizona.
