CEO of Divided District Studios
Creator of Home and Worlds Beyond
Shawn McArthur started off just like any other child in the 90's. being highly influenced by Anime, comic books, movies and video games, he wanted to be involved with being a part of the magic of storytelling. Since the age of 5, he was always found drawing his favorite heroes and making comics of his own. He's hardly a man of many words but his work and accolades speak for himself. For someone who sharpens his craft outside of school, Shawn prides himself on collecting most of his knowledge of drawing from technique books and YouTube. From penciling to coloring his own pages, he pushes towards being able to work both traditional and digital mediums of sequential art. Challenging himself to try something new and never backing away from difficult tasks. McArthur pitched only one rejected story to a mainstream publisher to realize that if anyone is going to properly handle and distribute a story he lost sleep for to create, it might as well be him. So, he gathered a bunch of creators he knew and started Divided District Studios.
