Ramen Empire is illustrated by Zach Stoppel, written by Bartholomew Klick, and Web-monkeyed by Andy “Offbeat” Lowder.
We started in our university newspaper, The Collegio. That’s why the deeper archive is strange and jumbled.
Zach Stoppel studies art at Pittsburg State University in Kansas. Check out his perpetually out-of-date DeviantArt page. He’s also very, very single and cries himself to sleep every night. He has a deep-seated fear of social media, and as such, cannot be found on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else. He’s also sort of terrible at checking his e-mail. If you want to get in contact with the art monkey, may God have mercy on your soul, for the trek will be arduous and fraught with dangers. Also, his roommate is grumpy.
Zach is available for commissions, so if you’re interested, e-mail him.
Bartholomew Klick studies English and Chinese at the same university. His blog once thought about updating! He occasionally does things for the Collegio, and is hopelessly addicted to Facebook. The doctors say nothing can be done about it. Klick lives under a bridge near the north side of town, and eats unfortunates who try to cross it on foot.
His favorite web comics are Girl Genius, Penny Arcade, Mangled Stare, PVP, & Short Packed. Obscure jokes pulled from these materials will make Bart giggle like a six year old girl in a pit full of kittens.
Andy “Offbeat” Lowder runs the Wheat State Pizza. He hasn’t been our code monkey in a long time, but he consults when something explodes. He makes great pizza, runs a good store. He’d be our code monkey, but he’s too busy raising his child or whatever. Pfft. We’re here when you decide to finally leave the little noodle-loaf at an orphanage, Andy!
