Chaz Daviscz was born on May 26, 1997 in Stamford, Connecticut.  From age three, his gift of art was evident.  Chaz says, “I remember asking my mom to show me how to draw the characters from a cartoon called ‘VeggieTales’. The first artist I ever knew was my Great Uncle Harold. Watching him draw made me want to draw. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.”  Growing up, he watched and fell in love with classic cartoons from as far back as the 60s', such as Looney Tunes, Popeye the Sailor Man, and Fat Albert.

 

Since grade school, he has been cartooning and animating on his own, starting from little flipbooks, and now, a drawing tablet. During his senior year in high school, he practiced digital animation.

 

He is a two-time winner of the Stamford Ferguson Library Art competition, where his art was featured on the preferred teen summer reading list, as well as on bookmarks and posters.

 

In September of 2014, he was chosen out of 200 applicants to participate in the Arts and Crafts on Bedford Fair in his hometown.  His original drawings, t-shirts, and sweatshirts were a huge success, and that caught the attention of the Stamford Advocate, the local newspaper, which has a daily circulation of 15,000 readers.

 

The Advocate published a story about Chaz, which caught the attention of legendary cartoonist, Mort Walker of Beetle Bailey fame.  He was so impressed by Chaz's work that he wanted to meet with him personally. “I felt overjoyed that a cartooning legend wanted to meet me, just a kid with a dream and a pen”, says Chaz.

 

In April of 2015, he was the one of the first inducties into CLC's (Childcare Learning Centers) Alumni Hall of Fame.

 

At present, he has two comics on webtoon.com. The comics are updated on regularly on weekends, and he co-host an up and coming youtube channel, Sockchoy TV.
