CR aka Chad Rocco by day is a graphic artist working in many styles from the Bruce Timm style seen in the DC Animated tales to more cartoony. By night, Chad is the creator and star of Familiar Faces. In that show, he takes a look at cartoon and video game characters people rarely give a second thought to.
Chad had been involved with TGWTG.com for a while, earning several Best of Blogs and Awesome Blogs of the Week on Transmission Awesome. He took part in the T-Shirt contest and that caught the eye of Linkara. Intrigued, Linkara asked him to draw for his webcomic, "Lightbringer". From that point on, Chad was on the road to the site. Fun fact to note that the art style for Lightbringer was the first time he tried that style. He's now been working on the comic for four months.
On September 7th, 2010, the Nostalgia Critic revealed Chad's face for all to see.
Familiar Faces, as described, takes a look at obscure or rarely thought about characters. The first episode, though is a lost awesome blog. Who knows whatever happened to it; as it was lost in the sands of time.
