Katie Hidalgo is a DC native living in the Philly/South NJ area. She is a freelance artist working on illustrations for comic and horror conventions, such as Monster Mania, Days of the Dead, and Wizard World. Katie has worked at comic book publishing houses as a graphic designer and and as a sketch cover artist, and designed and screen printed images for local bands and fests.

Eamon Dougherty is a cartoonist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He enjoys drawing detectives, monsters and funny animals. He has always been allergic to cats, but has since found he enjoys drawing them.
James earned his BFA in Illustration from Uarts in 2004. Since, he has spent most waking hours drawing, painting and screenprinting for clients including Drexel University, Grid, Hopeless Records, The National Constitution Center, Philadelphia Magazine, The Stranger, and The Wonder Years. James’s poster work has been shown at The Museum of Design Atlanta, Drexel University, and Civilian Art Projects. He has also been featured in John Foster’s Dirty Fingernails and Graphic Interviews for Graphic Artists 2. When he’s not making a mess he serves as a faculty member at Hussian School of Art and Antonelli Institute.
We’ve been following the work of this guest for many years — from his Amy + Jordan strips in Raw magazine and their subsequent Pantheon collections, through his collaboration with Alan Moore and his Liquid Television series for MTV. He’s been quiet in recent years, working on paintings in the deserts of New Mexico. But he’s recently moved to Philadelphia, and he’s hungry to tell stories again, with a serialized strip appearing in ArtBlog, a forthcoming reprint of his definitive graphic novel Agony, and, we think and hope, a new collaboration with Locust Moon.
So, for the very first time at any comic convention anywhere, joining us as an exhibitor with brand new zines and screenprints, and as a guest on our underground comics panel, please welcome cartoonist, illustrator, and outsider artist Mark Beyer.
