Caleb Hartsfield

Caleb Hartsfield is an intern at Civil Beat. He makes cartoons, otherwise known as comics, and sometimes known as graphic novels…honestly, he doesn’t know what to call them. Caleb was born and raised on Oahu and studied graphic design at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

If he’s not making comics, he’s probably making music, and you might catch him performing in Chinatown.
