Gary Whitney has loved drawing cartoons since he was a young boy. He
took his first step on the spiritual path when he was in the sixth
grade, after the book Yoga Made Easy by
Desmond Dunne seemed to jump off the shelf and into his hands at the St.
Paul Public Library. He continued to study both of these subjects for
most of his adult life, and has tried to combine everything that he has
learned about cartooning with his understanding of yoga and mysticism in
the graphic novel, Song of the Avatar.
