Mark Wang is an Illustrator and comic artist originally from Tucson, Arizona, but currently located in the fabled NYC. His illustrations and comics have been featured on Vice, New York Times, Buzzfeed, etc. Sometimes those drawings are funny, and sometimes they’re not. Go figure huh.

Josh Bayer is a cartoonist whose work centers around obsession, appropriation, and memory, and which draws from a deep wellspring of American comic book history. But not in a boring way.  He has served as an artist, writer, editor, and curator of many comics. He is the author of Theth, RM, Raw Power, All Time Comics and Theth: Tomorrow Forever, as well as being the architect behind the Suspect Device series. He teaches at Parsons and other schools all over the New York area.

He graduated from Pratt Institute in 2011, and currently works as a designer for Holiday House Publishing and as a freelance illustrator. His comics focus on pop culture, especially pop music.

Born and raised in China, Yinfan Huang is a New York-based illustrator who creates joyful, whimsical work for children’s books, magazines, brands, and institutions around the world. Her first children’s picture book, The Couch Potato, will be published in the fall of 2019 by Kids Can Press.
