Teddy Harvia

Artist / Fan / Panelist Guest

Teddy Harvia is the well-known pen name of David Thayer. He has drawn scores of wild beasts, strange BEMs, and big-nosed whiz kids from a world far from Earth who use short words to make fun of all kinds of things in scores of toons—and fan art for flyers, zines, and con pubs since 1967. He lives with wife Diana and four fat cats in Dallas, TX. To earn his keep, he works with words at a high-tech firm.
