Alex has finally found a healthy outlet for all of her twisted and morbid thoughts (you don't want to hear the ones from before). She attended Monroe County Community College to study Fine Arts, graduated, and realized she just wanted to draw cartoons. So, taking inspiration from Looney Toons, rock & roll, Debbie Does Dallas, and kittens, her abomination of “style” was born.
Alex is the primary artist at CrazedPixel Comics and has drawn and inked Cinder, Little Black Book, ZeD, Helsink County, and a bunch of other,
random stuff. She also co-writes ZeD and Helsink County, and wrote and illustrated Evenin’ all by her li’l ol’ self!
(We’re so proud!)
To enhance her depravity, Alex utilizes Faber Castell and Micron technical pens, Sharpies, PrismaColors, Gimp2.8 image manipulation software, and good old fashioned paper.
In 5 years, Alex will be blissfully hanging with her characters in a mental hospital.
“Wine, wine, wine, Alex had some wine. And she was happy, happy, happy, that she had some wine”
— Lyrics borrowed from Nirvana.
Jack-of-all-trades, king-of-none. Jacks can get flashy and slip into something else, kings get captured and guillotined.

My Name is Steve Mihalec, also known as Steve ‘E’. LaLa.
It's kinda funny; I'm going into Human Resources but I love creating characters and stories. Which is why CrazedPixel was crazy enough to sign me on! Ta-hut!
As for my talents (besides drinking and listening to music)...
- Helsink County co-creator
- Third Watch co-creator
When it comes down to it, my biggest inspiration is music. That may sound odd but it just puts me in a different mindset and really helps my creative process. Music is a huge help in creating the screwed-up/wonderful visions in my head... Scary?
Music aside, paper, pencils, pens, markers, computers, scanners and Gimp2.6 help create my art. Simple but true...
In years to come, I'll have my degree in Human Resources, and be creating more insane stuff. Being able to create is such a great outlet. As long as I'm doing something creative in the future, that's a plus.
Fun Fact: Steve does not take himself seriously... Seriously!
