About

Max Bare and Melissa Sue Stanley are a (soon-to-be) husband and wife team living in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood. Together they create all these murals, chalkboards, comics, and other fun stuff. As the "Salsa Sharks", Max and Melissa bring together two very different artistic styles and merge them into awesome projects. 

Max is an illustrator, designer, comic creator, and exhibiting artist. Currently he's working on the comic series, "Scally-Ho!", created by children's book author Alex Willan. Max's work can be found at maxbareart.com.

Melissa is an artist, illustrator, and comic creator. In addition to painted and printed work, she also sculpts and stitches together a world of creatures called the Woolbeasts. Melissa's work can be found at melissasuestanley. net.

David is a writer and actor with the comedy group LowCarbComedy. He has co-authored comic books, radio plays, and dozens of short videos.
