Born curious and raised on a steady
diet of comic books and Saturday afternoon double features sealed

lawyer. Star Wars flipped the switch and come hell or high water
he was going to do that for a living. Many years and countless
drawings later, John started at Bioware in 1995. Time flew by and
millions of games sold later it was time for new challenges. He
relocated to Vancouver in 2008 to work in film and television.
Currently illustrating THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL for CW, John
keeps busy doing feature, series and look development for diverse
projects like "DEFIANCE, ONCE UPON A TIME, FALLING SKIES and
CONTINUUM". John has also worked on the upcoming "POWER RANGERS"

Russell's Teapot and contemplates Shrodinger's Equation, all while
visiting with a delightful legion of imaginary friends. His his
latest work can be seen on The Umbrella Academy, Titans and new
Marvel Studios properties.

Keith started tattooing 11 years
ago, at a small studio called Vampire Tattoo. 8 years ago he opened
PennyBlack with his wife Shayla, and the adventure has yet to slow
down. He tends to enjoy traditional styles the most, as well as
darker black and grey images-- all halloween, all the time! Keith
has also been an avid pen-and-paper RolePlay gamer for 30+ years,
and has also spent time as a journalist for PC gaming websites-- so
he's no stranger to pop culture, and enjoys applying designs based
on this culture to other fans!
From Paris, where she has learned the
art of tattoo until she opened and ran her own shop for 2 years,
Anna Mimink decided to combine her art with her will to discover the
world. She is since 2015 a "tattooist on the road". She worked in
