Troy Little was born March 7, 1973 in (or on more accurately) Prince Edward Island, Canada.
He graduated from the Sheridan College Interpretive Illustration program in 1994 then returned home to P.E.I. to work crappy jobs and live with his folks. A dark time indeed.
He moved to Ottawa in 1995 and ended up working in animation in a multitude of positions.
In 1999 Troy decided to spend his spare time pursuing a career in comics. Influenced by independent comic creators like Dave Sim (Cerebus) and Jeff Smith (Bone), Troy’s first comic “Chiaroscuro” was published in 2001.
Troy won a Xeric Grant for Chiaroscuro and published 7 issues of the series on a quarterly basis. The series was well received on a critical level but due to financial difficulties the series was put on hiatus.
Troy moved back to P.E.I. in 2003 to re-group. He was awarded aP.E.I. Council of the Arts grant to complete the first book ofChiaroscuro, which he did in 2005.
He soon began work on his second book, Angora Napkin.
IDW Publishing approached Troy in early 2007 about publishingChiaroscuro after reading a positive review on Dave Sim’s blog. The hard cover edition was published in October 2007.
On August 22 & 23 of 2007 he became father of identical twin girls, Alicen and Hayden.
Chiaroscuro was released as a trade paperback in October 2008.
While finishing up production on the Angora Napkin graphic novel the project was picked up as a pilot for Teletoon, Canada.
The hard cover Angora Napkin graphic novel was released January, 2009 and was nominated for an Eisner Award (Best Publication For Teens) in 2010. The animated pilot aired on Halloween night, 2010.
Troy has been slowly picking away on the second volume ofChiaroscuro (and a half dozen other projects) which seems to have take a back seat to the second Angora Napkin book, “Harvest of Revenge” which will be serialized online beginning in the spring of 2011.
