Lauren Devora

Lauren Devora has been writing ever since she knew how to use a pencil. Children of Lilith was first imagined during a particularly rough session of math homework when Lauren was 15. That night the story gained 25 pages and a cast of characters. Her math homework was never finished. And now after 10 years, she is beyond giddy to witness her book go off into the world. Lauren currently lives in Asheville, NC with her giant gentleman dog Odin in their cozy little bungalow in the mountains. She can be found at local breweries, coffee houses, and any house party with a bonfire and red wine. She can also be summoned by looking into a mirror and saying “decaf is evil” three times. She’s busy working on the second installment of the Children of Lilith series, as well as several other projects.

Camelot Collective and YankeePope

Camelot Collective consists of two artists, Alex and Carolyn, trying to make understated but still emotionally evocative work. Alex is a burned-out software developer influenced by GeoCities sites, byzantine icons, and 1960s era advertisements for kitchen implements. Carolyn just completed her PHD in Evolutionary Biology and runs a dog photography/daycare business. She is inspired by native insects and Rhombicosidodecahedrons.



Stephen Kane is yankeepope, a comic about ducks, small talk, and occasionally the alienation of labor. He has drawn President Lincoln’s portrait approximately 8 times in the past year.
