Tuff-Girl and Tuff-Mutt vs Rip Tyler

Stephanie draws funny characters like Walt Kelly (Pogo) and draws cute like Fred Moore (Mickey Mouse), fresh, lively and always appealing. If that wasn't enough, she draws great dinosaurs - everything needs to have her dinosaurs in them.
Stephanie has been drawing professionally since 1991, where she got her start working in animation, including Disney’s “Pepper Ann.” Stephanie started drawing comics in ’93 and has drawn many licensed books over the years, such as “The Simpsons,” “Ren & Stimpy,” “Looney Tunes,” and “Tom & Jerry.” For nearly ten years, she worked as a character artist for Cartoon Network, creating art for “The Powerpuff Girls,” “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” “Duck Dodgers,” and “The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.” In 1998, Bongo Comics published her own original comics creation, “Hopster’s Tracks.”
I met Stephanie working for Cartoon Network, Atlanta, where I estimate she drew 98% of all Powerpuff Girl (PPG) art ever to be used for marketing, advertising and licensing and a few PPG comic book adventures to boot; enough that I’d have to check myself and remember that some guy by the name of Craig and not Stephanie had created the super powered trio.
