From an early age, George Gant knew he wanted to draw cartoons. He spent countless hoursdrawing at home, in school, and anywhere with pencil and paper available. George eventuallybegan drawing editorial cartoons in his high school’s newspaper, winning four awards over three
years. After high school, George focused on college and work and stepped away from drawing.
That was until he re-discovered comics. Upon discovering comic strips such as The Boondocksand webcomics such as Penny Arcade he knew it was time to begin his comics journey. Alifelong gamer, he used his love for video games as the backdrop for his first webcomic, TheReset Button. In late 2008, he created On the Grind, a webcomic loosely based on hisexperiences working as a barista. On the Grind ran for several years with two book collectionspublished.
In 2013, George rebooted his webcomic The Reset Button as an all-ages cartoon. This iterationof the webcomic had one book collection published. Shortly after, George began working as afreelance comic artist, working on such books as Hero Cats of Stellar City.
2019 was the year that everything changed. One day during a random game of hide-and-seekwith his two-year-old daughter, he hid in a closet. Instead of looking for him for a few minuteslike most toddlers would, she immediately found him. He found the experience so funny that itled him to draw a comic about it. That comic would eventually become the first Beware ofToddler.
Beware of Toddler would gain popularity fairly quickly, leading to more projects for George suchas Angel Face Investigates, a comic strip published in The Beano, a children’s comic magazinebased in the United Kingdom, and illustrations for Ranger Rick Magazine.
The antics of The Toddler and Dady would eventually be nominated for a Ringo Award, aWebtoon Canvas Award, and Four Glyph Awards, winning one in 2022. In late-2021,ToddlerHood! a printed book collection was successfully funded on Kickstarter, and in 2022,Beware of Toddler joined King Features through the Comics Kingdom platform.
