Meet the creative team behind the brand new horror
independent comic "Crumbs" this October at the Vancouver Comic &
Toy Show! Writers Jessey Nelson & Kyle Siemens along with artist
Mary Madison Silvas will be showcasing their very first comic book
- CRUMBS. Crumbs was adapted from Jessey Nelson's short film and
is the story of a young boy named Shylo and his imaginary monster.
Jessey Nelson is a Canadian-born
filmmaker from Vancouver, BC. He is a multi-talented artist,
working as a director, writer, producer, and actor. Jessey is best
known for his short film Crumbs, (co-directed with his brother
Cody) which was selected by the Crazy8s Film Society in 2021, and
adapted into this comic book. In 2019, Jessey co-founded the
Smashed Potato Kids sketch comedy crew.

short film, AI Artist, which was selected as a Top 10 Finalist at
the Runway AI Film Festival. After receiving positive feedback and
encouragement to create more, they are developing AI Artist into a
Kyle Siemens is currently travelling
the world, supporting himself with writing. Yup, it's possible! He
co-wrote Crumbs (mostly in an apartment in Morocco), a bunch of
other screenplays, and is currently writing a fantasy graphic
novel for young people about how to find meaning in life. He
writes about all this on his website, which is his name with a
"dot com" at the end. Fancy!
MARY MADISON SILVAS
What began as a simple love for
westerns and animals turned into a life-long passion to become a
professional storyteller. Mary "Madison" Silvas is a Southern
California based illustrator with a wide variety of talents and
mediums. Predominantly working in digital inking and traditional
pencil work, Madison has expanded her skill to include acrylics,
watercolor, traditional inking, and when she has to sit in the car
for a while, knitting. Her love of sequential art began when she
was a storyboard artist for a couple of student films at Brooks
Institute of Photography, and soon branched out into writing and
drawing her own graphic novels.
The incredible opportunity
to work on Crumbs opens several new doors for her as she continues
to hone her skills, explore different techniques, and hopefully
one day soon, poblish her own stories. She also hopes she can be
proof that dreams are meant to be chased, no matter how hopeless
it may seem.
