About Me

Hi, my name is Diane Alber, an Arizona native, with a Fine Arts Degree from Arizona State University.  Drawing has been a passion of mine since the day I received my first box of Crayola 8 crayons.  I’ve been able to express my creative side in many forms of art from paintings to portraits. And now I am parlaying my art talent in the technology field with the creation of  Kip and Gary comics, which was developed over a weekend.  I wanted the comic strip to be both educational and entertaining. And I hope you’ve had the chance to enjoy them!

      Good question…and I honestly don’t have a good answer. I stumbled on this career path while working at bar in Tempe when I graduated college, one of my regulars asked if I wanted to sell faceplates and patchpanels, I guess the rest is history 🙂ReplyCancel

    I wanted to see if there was any interest on a video our site released, highlighting how the iPad Mini impacts our health, environment and economy.

    After the site popped up in my quick research, I thought I’d reach out, hoping you’ll find some value in the video. Let me know if it’s something you’d be interested in seeing or possibly sharing with your readers!

    Thanks for your time and consideration!

    Hello Diane,

    I have a company based in the northeast which we provide specialized cleaning of data centers, which I have been doing for over thirty years.

    I enjoy your work and want to see how I can use your comics on possibly my web site or an email blast.

    Hi! Love your comics – very talented!

    I’m wondering if you allow companies like ours to use your comics for a fee?

    We’d be very interested.

    Thanks 🙂ReplyCancel
