Ciaran Gaffney crash-landed on this planet in 1989. The initial panic was soon replaced by immense adoration for furry little whiskered things most people refer to as 'cats', and quickly made sure he acquired many of these for his very own. He lives in Vermont with his family and partner, surrounded by winter. He makes up for the inconvenient summers by drawing lots of wintry things. Inspired by the Golden Age illustrators and the writing of Cormac McCarthy, Ciaran attempts to weave sometimes-tragic scenes of snow and fleeting warmth through illustration and wordsmithery.

Abigail had ambitions of becoming an opera singer and joining the circus whilst growing up, and although neither of those ended up working out too well, she still enjoys both.
She began drawing with ink and painting with watercolor. She has developed a taste for flat digital coloring, however, and only gets a craving for paint now and again.
Her inspirations change almost weekly, ranging from Edgar Allen Poe to Lewis Carroll to Dr. Seuss. Her greatest artistic influences have been Arthur Rackham, John William Waterhouse, and Edward Gorey.
Any spare time that's not spent basking in darkness or watching re-runs of The Addams Family, she is creating art for private clients, illustrating books, and spending time with her favorite long-leggity beasts, ghouls, ghosts and various other things that go bump in the night.
For more information or to see more of her works, check out her website .
You can also find her on the following: Facebook, MySpace, and deviantArt.
She also has a blog.
Keeper of one too many cats, Jade is a comic artist and illustrator who may or may not run entirely on chai tea and cupcakes. She is not a huge fan of digital art, though she's known to throw color around in Photoshop, but she prefers drawing entirely by hand with pencil and ink.
A nerd at heart, she has a love for history and science, particularly physics and astronomy, but she can't do a lick of math. When Jade isn't drawing, she's more than likely reading some book or another, and more than likely listening to music. Or, just as likely, she's busy wrangling her pets that are currently ruling her house.
Jade counts among her influences Glen Keane, Alessandro Barbucci, Jen Wang, Aubrey Beardsley, Kay Nielsen, and many other artists that she's come across and sometimes met through comics and the internet. She has one self-published comic called Maps and is always working on more comics and illustrations, while also trying to make a name for herself, somewhere (and ideally in a good way).
At the moment, Jade can only be found on deviantART.

Tiny artist statement:
As an artist I am obsessed with capturing small, beautiful pieces of everyday life. My focus on figurative art attempts to describe the accidentally elegant gestures and poignant, transient beauty of the people around me. Every life is full of stories and armed with my pencils and brushes I try to find those stories and give them life on a canvas.
