  • Chandler O’Leary was born 50 miles west of Wall Drug, and has had an affinity for giant jackalopes and coffee-pot-shaped buildings ever since. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, and the proprietor of Anagram Press—which allows her to make a living by drawing pictures, lettering every word by hand, and in general doing things the hard way.
