Rashad Doucet is from New Orleans by way of Eunice. He is a Ville Platte, Louisiana native who’s been drawing comics since his grandma gave him a pencil and some paper to keep quiet during church. He’s known for his work with Oni Press on comics like Invader Zim, Rick and Morty, and Alabaster Shadows. He’s also worked with DC Comics, Stela, and most recently was a part of the Eisner-winning Elements: Fire Anthology. Rashad is currently a professor of sequential art at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, where he can often be found listening to ’80s power ballads and watching way too much anime.
