Special Guest Artists:

Kelly Tindall
Kelly Tindall wrote and drew the adventures of Archie Snow, the leopard-headed adventurer, in nearly thirty issues of the acclaimed Image comic Proof before going on to supply artwork for This is a Souvenir (Image), Machine of Death (Bearstache), I Saw You (Three Rivers), Zombie Bomb (Terminal Press), and Matinee Eclectica (Dirty Third). Besides providing colors and letters for other books (such as Green Wake), Kelly is currently working on Rebel Blood for Image and spends time with his wife and super-awesome baby daughter.

Karine Charlebois
Karine Charlebois has been drawing since she could hold a crayon. When she learned that cartoons weren’t exactly made by elves in Japan and California, she found her way into the Montreal animation industry. She’s worked mostly in storyboarding for both TV and video games, and at some point decided to try her hand at comics, first landing a few gigs with an educational publishing house and producing a graphic novel for them. A well known artist in the Gargoyles fandom, she got the opportunity to draw both for the main series and the Gargoyles: Bad Guys spinoff, published by SLG. She currently juggles working from home on a comic series for Mega Brands, raising two young boys with her husband, and trying to make her obese, geriatric cat lose some weight.

Ariel Marsh
Ariel Marsh is a freelance artist living on the West Island. She works on illustrations, pin-ups, watercolour greeting cards and art for small Flash games. Her current comic work includes Infantasy and three stories in Sci-Fact Comics, both published by Ink’d Well Comics. In her free time she digs playing video games, Dungeons and Dragons and reading comics.
