Joe Deagnon has worked in the entertainment industry since 1989. A classically trained animator from Sheridan College, he started out painting for animation houses in Toronto, Canada. He has worked in every facet of the industry (from pre-production to post-production) eventually honing his storytelling skills as an editor.

He has authored two comic series. His work has been described as a combination of Harvey Pekar meets Ralph Steadman and his first series Paranoid Tales of Neurosis has been dubbed “A Mad Magazine for the 90’s” by drive-in movie critic, Joe Bob Briggs.

 The current series, entitled "Chicken Outfit", has been called “Fantastic! An excellent book that should be in everyone’s collection. Essential" by Ross Rivers, Indie Comix.

He has contributed to Exclaim, Weng’s Chop, Strange Kids Club and Film Threat magazines. He is currently an illustrator and cartoonist living in Canada.
