Creator Full Legal Name (birth date [Month dd, yyyy] - death date), followed by Common Credit Name, followed by a brief introduction of 1-3 sentences, including their most notable credits, other careers, and where appropriate, certain biographical details. A good first sentence is something like "[Creator] is a [nationality] [creative role] best known for her [work type/medium] [title]."

See Template:Creator for more information about the {{Creator}} infobox.

At minimum, write the first sentence, include a bibliography, and try to fill in as much of the Creator infobox as possible. If an article is quite short, also include the {{Stub}} template.

Life & Career Edit

Typically creator biographies will not be so in-depth as to require more than one section, but feel free to break it up into other sections as appropriate. Try to keep it as chronological as possible.

Awards & Recognition Edit

"Awards" should focus on awards won, but notable nominations, shortlists, etc. are also acceptable. "Recognition" encompasses everything from lifetime retrospective exhibitions to a character in another's comic being named after them.
