Web Comic Writer
Founded in 2004, Studio O.N.Y. started out as a married couple doing Artist Alley tables at conventions in the Midwest. Richard and Shannon Townsend had worked as freelancers with several companies, most notably with A2 press on the Tabletop RPG Book "Teenagers from Outer Space: The Landing". During their time as a small art studio, one young fan had asked them to turn their original characters into a weekly web comic. It was from this pleading that their weekly web comic "Otaku -no- Yen" (geeks without money) was born.
In early 2010, the studio brought on long time friend and artist Kimberly Pridemore as a collaborative member. Now that the studio has upgraded, the trio have begun work on a bold new comic project to be released in 2012, among other comics in the works from all members.
