Ronn Sutton started his comics career around 1970. In 1972 he moved to New York where he met Berni Wrightson and ghosted work for Howard Chaykin, Neal Adams and others. Sutton started focusing on design and eventually became creative director for Canadian magazine Tribute, which he did for over six years. At the same time, he still did comics for publications such as 'Vortex', 'Ronn Sutton's Starbikers', 'T-Minus-l' and 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.'. During the 1990s, Ronn Sutton did a lot of animation work, as well as comics projects like 'Oz Squad', 'Sex & Death', 'Draculina's Cozy Coffin', 'Vamperotica' and 'Song of the Sirens'.
Sutton often works together with writer/artist Janet Hetherington, with whom he made the newspaper strip 'Jannie Weezie' for The Ottowa Citizen, the comic book 'Perf & Gauge' and 'Spinnerette', among others. One of his new projects is illustrating 'Elvira, Mistress of the Dark' for Claypool Comics.
