Based in Vancouver
BC, Canada, Katy DeCobray's origins are shrouded in mystery and
rumour. She first appeared at San Diego Comic Con in 2009 and has
been entertaining fans at conventions across the West coast ever

creating costumes that draw from a variety of sources from comic
books to anime and video games, although she has a particular
penchant for personating villains in tight black spandex and
impossibly high heels.
You will most likely find her in the
center of attention, nerding up your selfies, and cursing her poor
choices in footwear.
You can contact her via email and the

Michael Kluckner is the artist/author of many illustrated books
including 4 graphic novels, the latest being The Rooming House,
which follows a group of drifting 20-somethings in Kitsilano in
the 1970s. "Toshiko," his first graphic novel about the
Japanese-Canadian experience in the Second World War, is now in an

Andy Cowan is a self professed pretty old nerd (he remembers
William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton as Doctor Who, and not as
reruns!) and has been a fan of sci-fi since he was a kid. Andy
would watch and read just about anything to do with sci-fi, and
passed it on to his kids, especially the youngest. She really got
into anime and was always drawing, first on paper and then on her
computer. Probably linked to Andy's fascination with sci-fi is a
love of gadgets, which led to Andy creating line images on his
daughter's drawing tablet. Andy then turned the images into
something more substantial - eventually leading him to create pop
culture acrylic "hologram" lights and wooden panels as shown!
Miguel Molina is an illustrator/designer residing in Vancouver,
BC. His unique illustrative line art style brings a new dimension
to comic art. He looks to distill characters down to their inner
most important qualities in the elegance of his work. Each piece
is unique upon its own, be it either a hand-pulled limited edition
silkscreen poster or his small batch stained glass pins. Each
design he creates is a unique piece of art for any avid collector.
