Wayne Alan Harold is a graduate of Kent State University with a degree in communications and film. Soon after graduating, Harold began producing short comedic segments for MTV about Cleveland-based "Genuine Nerd" Toby Radloff. He also created comedy shorts for online video outlets including Turner Broadcasting's SuperDeluxe.com.

Harold's documentary, Night Music: The Art of P. Craig Russell, has had public screenings at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus. Night Music also inspired the subsequent instructional video series, P. Craig Russell's Guide to Graphic Storytelling.

Harold is the creator of the Kent Comic Arts Festival ("KentCAF") in Kent, Ohio. The debut event was held at Kent State University and guests included My Friend Dahmer creator Derf Backderf, Funky Winkerbean creator Tom Batiuk and Jill Thompson, Scott Hampton, Galen Showman and other artists of the graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book.

In 2015, Harold founded Wayne Alan Harold Productions to publish original works, starting with the P. Craig Russell Sketchbook Archives. He is currently restoring, preserving and republishing Russell's acclaimed creator-owned projects from the 1980s and early 1990s.
