Craig Black (born August 20, 1998) is a Scottish artist and writer, notable for being the creator of Space Pirate Captain MacTaggart, and brand manager of the Tails from the Federation franchise.

Work in the Tails franchise Edit

Initial creation Edit

Craig wrote a series of fan-fiction stories inspired by The Space Gypsy Adventures. Around this time, he was developing a story from the perspective of Jaws MacTaggart. However, after he was hit with a cease-and-desist order from a representative, he decided to retool it into an original concept. He brought along Jacob Elmer, who was already providing some illustrations, to be his illustrator.

Further development Edit


Other works Edit

  • After finishing his MacTaggart stories, Craig would help out Jordann Edwards in retooling The Dynamite Twins and Friends; he would become a creative contributor for Critteron Concepts.


  • His favourite character is Kyoko Mori. In fact, he admitted that he would kindly ask her out (if she wasn't taken!).
