about the creator

Birth Name: Marvin D. McDonald

Sex: Male

Identity/Class: Creator / Artist / Writer / Colorist

Occupation: CEO / Owner of Swurve Comics

Base of Operations: The Swurve House 

Powers / Abilities: I possess the God given gift and talent to manipulate

and alter the full artistic and creative spectrum at will through pure 

thought, imagination, and illustration. 

Bio: Born and raised in the sunshine state (Florida) with a passion for art 

and creativity. From a very early age drawing for me was like breathing, 

it was second nature. That combined with a childhood love for comic 

books, it was a match made in heaven. 

Growing up, my favorite characters were Spiderman, Luke Cage, 

Batman, and The X-Men. However, I also bought comics for the art and 

stories illustrated within the pages. This inspired me to want to create my 

own characters and style, thus the beginning of The Swurverse.

As I grew, my love for art and the print medium grew as well. I continued

to improve and learn new skills and techniques; incorporating Adobe 

Photoshop and Illustrator. Hence, bringing my works to life, adding color, 

depth, and even more dimension.

It was not until my college years that I began to embrace my literary style 

and creative writing skills. The final piece to my adroit magnum opus. 

Now, I create my own comics of short stories and anthologies of 

urban sci-fi. Thus, bringing The Swurverse to total fruition.

People ask what motivates me as a creator and artist?  It’s the challenge.

The challenge to constantly create new and intriguing artistic content 

that will visually stimulate and literally fascinate the mind.
