Evan Trine was born in 1988 in AMERICA. Son of a prosperous ear-muff salesman, he went to expensive private schools where he spent most of his time hiding in the air conditioning vents and sharing his pizza lunchables with Jarmal, the school’s janitor. Every day after school he would return home, listen to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, and continue work on his 1:200 scale model of the Death Star, made entirely out of buffalo nickels. After its completion, he decided to further entertain his fascination with large spheres and purchase an extremely oversized inflatable globe. He soon acquired a keen understanding of topography. With easy access to his parents large fortune, and an expansive knowledge of all things McGyver, he created a hot air ballon using only things he had in his room: elmers glue, a small chair, three toothpicks, a bedsheet, and the box from a special edition Hungry Hungry Hippos that he got from his deaf uncle Ruben the previous Christmas. At the age of 14, high above the ground in his balloon, he made the first world map drawn exclusively with Crayola markers. This piece can now be seen hanging in the North Wing of the White House, next to a Norman Rockwell painting of a Basset Hound. During his travels he met the love of his life, and icelandic maiden named Lorna. They were married in 2006 and spent their honeymoon basket-weaving in Kuala Lumpur. They have a dog, John Stockton, named after his favorite basketball player ever.
