MadMonkey is an animator and programmer from Los Angeles. He started Losing is Fun as a forum game on the Bay12 forums. He saw the need for a platform dedicated to similar projects so he founded ExPublico. ExPublico would have never been possible without the support of the community and, of course, Mrs. Monkey. MadMonkey's avatar depicts the monkey demigod Sun Wukong from the Chinese epic novel Journey to the West. It was drawn by rongs1234 on DeviantArt.
