Don’t Be A Monster is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works alongside haunted houses throughout the U.S. to put on unique and entertaining universal anti-bullying assemblies in schools for students in 4th-10th grade. Our mission is simple: we work to educate and empower youth to be leaders in their school around diversity, inclusiveness, and show them how to stand up for their friends and peers. We focus on the choices a student can make when it comes to bullying, and how these choices will impact their lives as well as the lives of those around them. What makes Don’t Be A Monster unique is the way we deliver this message.
Stan Yan is a Denver-based writer/illustrator, caricature artist and instructor. Growing up in Denver, Yan, a self-taught artist, went to school at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he got his bachelor’s degree in accounting, where Yan’s life took the tragic turn into sales for the securities industry, where he wallowed in ethical poverty on-and-off for thirteen years. Yan takes his frustrations out by penning graphic novels such as The Wang. In 2005, Yan has gave up on financial security and become a full-time freelance cartoonist, illustrating Sub Culture for Ape Entertainment and Action Lab Danger Zone, creating comic strips for the financial and sales industry, drawing zombie caricatures, and picking up odd illustration and teaching jobs when folks are feeling agonizing pity for him. Stan teaches Summer camps, after school programs, workshops, and helped to develop a degree program in graphic storytelling as an adjunct faculty member at the Community College of Aurora. His recent credits include art and colors for Show Devils (Mother Mind Studios), writing and art for Vincent Price Presents (BlueWater Productions / Storm Comics), and writing and art for There’s a Zombie in the Basement (Squid Works Kids). But, he’s probably best known for doing zombie and pony caricatures. Upcoming projects include development of a graphic novel about his best friend’s battle with cancer.
