Ursula Murray Husted spends her time making comics, teaching comics at the University of Wisconsin Stout, daydreaming about boats, and feeding the cats. She has traversed the Arctic Circle by way of Svalbard on a traditionally rigged barkentine tall ship, travelled the entire length of the Ohio River on a small research vessel, and collaborated with NASA in teaching LEGO Robotics. Husted holds her MFA in Comics from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and her PhD in the visual ethnography of internet memes from the University of Minnesota.

She lives in beautiful Minneapolis with her partner Bryan, the aforementioned cats (Cooper Black and Myriad), and many many books.  She dislikes sudden loud noises and styrofoam packing peanuts, but likes regional candy and road side attractions.
