He divides his time between fine art work, Magic the Gathering illustrations, covers for Dark Horse’s Halo and Dragon Age comics, personal comic book projects, and his longstanding hobby of teaching old audio hardware new tricks.
Winona Nelson is a fantasy illustrator and comic creator. She has worked for Magic the Gathering and Warhammer Black Library, and drew a webcomic called Artifice.

Michael Vincent Bramley
MichaelVincentBramley_2014
Michael Vincent Bramley is certainly a carbon based lifeform and most definitely a Homo sapien male, aged late twenties to early thirties. Rumours to the contrary are vicious libel and/or slander. He came to America from Great Britain in a plane and did NOT fall screaming from the sky in ‘a hellish ball of flame that no man could survive’ as some of his detractors allege. There’s nothing remarkable here, so move along please. He writes science fiction and horror comics of the alternative variety, making occasional forays into more well established anthologies of note. He wrote for the CBLDF Liberty annual and Reading With Pictures, as well as his creator owned, Kickstarter-funded title Sherbet. As an artist he occasionally produces illustrations of pop-culture nightmares he has.

Mike Ellis is a comic book writer/artist, digital media producer and amateur beard-growing aficionado. He began spitefully making comics while attending the University of Toronto after the comics in the school’s newspaper were so bad he shouted, “I could make a better comic!”  And he’s been making them ever since. Since then he has done work for Scientific American, Science Rendezvous, Corus Radio Canada, Harvard University, Comedy Central and numerous comic book publishers. Currently, he is the house artist for Chemicals Are You Friends website and publishing the comic Pieces of Eights, a pirate themed, fantasy adventure-comedy! That’s right, PIRATE MAGIC!
