Cassandra Thomas is an independent cartoonist and Magna Cum Laude graduate with a degree in Mathematics from University of Wisconsin – River Falls. She is the creator of the popular KiLA iLO series.
Fascinated by the art of animation, Cassandra taught herself to draw from Disney’s Magic Artist books. She started drawing seriously around the age of fourteen, participating in online art communities such as deviantART, and started her original webcomic KiLA iLO at the age of eighteen. She used the crowd-sourcing platform, Kickstarter, to get the first volume of KiLA iLO into print. Her career took off from there. Her books are now in local bookstores and libraries. The paperback version of her series will soon be translated into Spanish.
She was born in Indiana and raised in Minnesota on a rural hobby farm. She lived in Wisconsin while attending college, then lived in Ireland for five months. She is currently living near Evansville, Indiana where she continues to work as an artist and an editor, while also remaining open to new opportunities in a Math related field.
