Brian and Kristy Miller are originally from Missouri and founded digital color studio Hi-Fi colour design in the Westport area of Kansas City in 1998. The couple moved away from the Show-Me state in 2001, relocating Hi-Fi in the Southwest. This is their first convention appearance in Kansas City since that time. The team at Hi-Fi colors comics like Doctor Who, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Batman VS. Superman, SpongeBob, and more. As the authors of several art-instruction books, including Hi-Fi Color for Comics, the creative duo are also focused on art education. They created Hi-Fi Academy as an outreach program where they visit schools and art galleries to share comic art education with the public. Hi-Fi Academy also offers three-day workshops for aspiring creators wanting to learn professional skills fast. In addition to his work coloring comics, Brian is also a respected illustrator known for his work on Star Wars, The X-Files, and Doctor Who, as well as his pop culture and gallery artwork. Little known fact: Brian’s first work in comics was coloring Kansas City area small-press comic books like Captain Crafty, Walt the Wildcat, and Planet 10 before going pro with Marvel on Cable & the X-Men.
