Cynthia Lee to Exhibit at PIX 2015

Cynthia Lee (Love and Monsters Anthology, The Green Stripe, King Pellinore and the Questing Beast, Monster ABCs)I'm a comix artist and illustrator who lives in Pittsburgh, PA. I like to draw monsters, merfolk, and googly eye creatures. My stories tend to explore communication (or lack of), love, and loss. I like to write quiet moments, like in a museum after hours or in an isolated part of the woods.

In addition to illustrating, I also teach workshops on shrink plastic pieces, bookbinding, stopmotion, and comic books. I love learning new mediums and teaching peeps how to use tools and materials.

Nate McDonough to Exhibit at PIX 2015

Nate McDonough (GRIXLY) - Nate is the creator of all-ages comics such as Experimental Explorations, Clever Renderings and Tedious Commentary Adventures. His collaborations include Whimsical White Boy Stuff, Alternative Melancholy #5 and Please Acknowledge Me! He has contributed art to Wantonly Obscure Tales, Solemn Stories and Unique Expressions.

He chugs India Ink all day long, sleeps in a septic tank and is known to blindly stumble through the night until he faceplates into a curb. He lives in Pittsburgh where he hoards thousands of (mostly dead) cats
