Stan Yan



Stan is an award-winning, first generation American-born-Chinese, Denver-based writer, illustrator, caricature artist and instructor. Growing up in Denver, Stan, a self-taught artist, went to school at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he got his bachelor’s degree in accounting. His life took the tragic turn into sales for the securities industry, where he wallowed in ethical poverty on-and-off for thirteen years. Stan took out his frustrations out by penning graphic novels. Stan teaches art at RMCAD, the Cuddlefish Academy and is currently Co-Regional Advisor of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
