Clayton de Wet has been interested in sound and sound effects since he can remember, and has always picked up on audio details others miss. As a child, he aggravated his mother by refusing to watch the revamped versions of his favorite classic 1960s cartoons. "Since they had switched voice actors, I could tell and felt betrayed that those weren't the characters that I knew and loved," says Clayton. "She was like, 'It's the same thing!' And I was just like, 'Nope.'"

Madeline Rupert, or Mad, has been drawing since she can remember, but she made her first forays into storytelling as a teenager. Early in high school, she penned a couple of lengthy fantasy novels-which she now laughs off as her "space operas" - prominently featuring angels and demons. "Pretty much everything I thought was cool at the time was just smushed together," Mad says.

Later, at an arts high school, she cultivated an interest in painting and drawing, and decided to combine her love for typography and imagery by pursuing an education in graphic design. "I applied to several art colleges and I was accepted to all of them," says Ramona, "but by far, SCAD was the one that clearly differentiated itself from all the others."
