Christopher Dearman


After spending his informative years in his birthplace of Elgin, IL - Christopher Dearman has called Carbondale, IL, Dundee, IL, Huntley, IL, Lake Beuna Vista, FL, and Lake Delton, WI "home" at certain points in his life...

Graduating from St. Edwards High School (which is a story in and of itself), he took his talents to Carbondale, Illinois, where he spent five years (with a Disney internship mixed in) nurturing his creative muse (while trying not to kill too many brain cells).

Spending the last decade working as a banker and underwriter, Dearman decided it was finally time to confess some of his amusing life stories for all to read in SANTA'S VILLAGE GONE WILD! and the upcoming CARBONDALE GONE WILD!.

As creator of the the full-color graphic novel BLACKOUT DRUNK (which received an offer from Comedy Central to turn into a possible television series) and spin-off comic strip BLACKOUT SKUNK - Christopher Dearman continues to shun political correctness, while trying to entertain the masses with his precarious prose.

Christopher Dearman or his creative endeavors have been featured in newspapers: USA Today, The Chicago Sun-Times, The Elgin Courier, The Daily Harald, The Northwest Harald & The MidWeek - among others. He has also been featured in TimeOut Chicago, Skunk and Park World magazines, as well as authored the books: SANTA'S VILLAGE GONE WILD!, BLACKOUT DRUNK The Novel, and the upcoming CARBONDALE GONE WILD!

In 2011 he created the DELLS BUCKET LIST - which documents his quest for adventure and behind-the-scene looks at some of the many Wisconsin Dells area bars, restaurants, and attractions. His experiences are printed in a Wisconsin Dells Events newspaper column, as well as at:

He is also the the creator of a best-selling magic trick called BURNT! and Weekly World News art.
