Returning to the show is our friend Erica Batton!! Erica was a big hit at last year’s show and we are pleased to have her come back to Manhattan.
#somethingold (We know that sounds bad… Sorry. We love you Erica. 😀 )
Erica Batton is an illustrator, writer, and lover of all things absurd. She’s been drawing since she could pick up a pencil and her love for making others laugh dates back to that one time in first grade when she almost got kicked off the bus for repeating a joke she overheard her dad telling his construction worker buddies.
Erica has since then matured and refined her skills. She also realized her dad tells some really terrible jokes. Armed with a decade’s worth of art education under her belt, Erica now writes and draws pictures to amuse herself for a living.
In her spare time, she draws and paints for fun. The rest of her time is eaten up reading comic books and researching questionable things on The Google.
She resides in the Kansas City area with her roommate and two cats: Cobra and Grimlock (yes, like the Dinobot).
