After graduation,she worked as a custom fashion designer in several design salons in Lithuania. she came to United States in 1999, and continue her journey as a pop artist today. With more than a decade of art training in Europe,she has shared her vibrant and radiant images throughout the United States for more than 14 years.

Mike Roll is a comic artist and illustrator from the Detroit, Michigan area. He’s best known for his adorably-gruesome “Apooka” series of children friendly comics chronicling the life (death?) of an endearing, cute-as-a-button zombie child.

Emily Zelasko is a Metro Detroit artist who creates comics and illustrations. Many of my comics are stand-alone slightly fantastical /Sci-Fi stories that deal with peculiar adventure, a bit of reflection and hopefully growth. Stories vary from an old man who answers his calling for an adventure (“Old Man Dog and the Ocean”), to a dog whose head explodes into a galaxy and the owner who needs to fix it (“Something Something Adam”) and more. I am also the cartoonist for the quirky paranormal investigator miniseries “Rainbow Sprinkle-Slime” written by Tony Saylor.

Joe Foo is a fantastic artist whose works include: Desmond’s Comic and Rob Worley’s Scratch 9.

Mat Roll is the author of the science fiction novel series Jupiter 7 and manga artist.
