A Life in Comics
Brian & Kristy Miller co-own Hi-Fi colour design. Hi-Fi is a digital coloring studio that has been in business for over ten years. Brian got his start as a traditional painter and segued into digitally coloring comic books. Hi-Fi has worked with almost every major comic and book company including DC, Marvel, IDW, Disney, Hasbro, Mattel, Scholastic and many more.
As a child, Brian Miller loved to color and paint. After earning straight smiley faces in preschool art, he tested into a grade-school gifted program known as Bright Ideas, where he quickly earned the nickname “Marker- Happy” because of his enthusiasm for that medium (and evidenced by the constant stains on his hands and clothing).
As a teenager, Brian discovered both Macintosh computers and comics, and experimented with coloring comic art. He picked up real-world design experience working part time for magazine publishers and printing companies while studying art at Southwest Missouri State University. There, he also met Kristy.
Kristy Miller has degrees in Antiquities and Secondary Education from Southwest Missouri State, as well as a Master’s Degree in Museum Studies from the University of Kansas. After working and living in various countries throughout the world, Kristy began teaching middle school history and Macintosh computers while Brian worked at an advertising agency.
Brian continued to color comics on the side using various pen names until, in 1998, he walked away from his art director position to start Hi-Fi colour design with Kristy and a group of talented creators. After one too many harsh Missouri winters, Brian and Kristy moved Hi-Fi to Arizona. There, Kristy worked at a museum as Director of Education until she left her position in 2002 to help Brian run Hi-Fi colour design full time.
Kristy handles the day-to-day, non-artistic sides of Hi-Fi. For fun, she teaches anthropology and history at a local community college. Brian enjoys coloring and creating fully painted covers and pinups for comics, books and magazine covers.
Brian and Kristy write children’s storybooks and art instruction books and hope you and your family enjoy reading the Wick and Kelty adventure series as much as they have creating it.
