Hans Rickheit has been an artist and cartoonist since the 1980s. His work has been featured in magazines, posters, TV shows, movies and art galleries.

His first major selfpublished graphic novel, 'Chloe', won a Xeric grant in 2001. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he set up the now defunct Cambridge Inferno, a showcase for cartoonists living in that area.
Rickheit's work has been featured in publications such as 'The Stranger', 'Kramer's Ergot' (Avodah Books, 2002), 'The Comics Interpreter Volume 2' (Abscess Press, 2003), 'Proper Gander', 'Reglar Wiglar', 'Driver's Side Airbag', 'Sick Puppy Comics' and 'Paper Rodeo'. In 2003, he participated in the exhibition "Comics as Art" at the Zeitgeist Gallery in Cambridge, Ma, where he also gives live drawing lessons.
