Based in windy Dublin, Ireland Polish artist Karolin Felix creates one of a kind dolls and dark, dreamy and sensual lowbrow illustrations. Her imaginary world is influenced by all things weird and unusual: fun-fairs, sideshows, strange medical conditions, unexplained phenomena, religious mysticism, insanity, old forgotten toys, decay of things. Being raised close to nature, she also weaves threads of fairytale and folklore into her work. Visit karolinfelix.com to see more of her art.

Wilna Panagos writes (occasionally it is published somewhere [New Contrast Literary Journal, Gone Lawn, Otoliths, Museum Life, Medusa’s Laugh Press, Prick of the Spindle, The Undertow Review, Ditch Poetry]), illustrates things (biology mostly), does web design from time to time & so on. She wrote and illustrated a few children's books and is currently writing something which may or may not turn out to be a short, odd novel. She's convinced that reality isn't fit for human consumption and should be avoided at all cost. She believes in orange and pigeons and has an imaginary dog. Oh yes, she lives in Pretoria, South Africa.
Image maker, guitar player and eccentric Amanda Reilly is an illustrator based in New York. There is only one philosophy that rings clear throughout her work and her life and that is always about embracing the bold, unorthodox and bizarre. Vivid and saturated colors populate her imagery which lends itself to a constant visual-vibration of uneasiness and tension. Her work has appeared in several galleries and magazines throughout the east and west coast. You can find her on the web at www.amandareilly.com.
