Sam Marlow is an animator and background designer for Titmouse by day, and a self-publishing cartoonist by night. He has worked on a wide range of animated projects, from motion graphics for advertising and documentaries, to traditional cartoon animation for television. In 2014, he was the background supervisor for the Adult Swim show, Superjail! In 2015, he worked on a bunch of kids shows you’ve never heard of. In 2016, his first cartoon was published in The New Yorker
David Ostow is an illustrator and cartoonist living, drawing and drinking what most doctors would agree is way too much coffee in Brooklyn, NY. His work has appeared in 3 books, and his comics have been featured on blogs and news outlets such as Buzzfeed, the Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly and McSweeney's Internet Tendency. He is also the creator of Strange Breeds, a weekly comic strip that appears on BarkPost
Maelle Doliveux is a French/Swiss illustrator/cartoonist who has worked with very, very serious clients like Newsweek, the New York Times, and SpongeBob Squarepants comics. She's received a gold medal from theSociety Of Illustrators in 2015 for her "Little Nemo in Between Slumberland" strip. In her spare time, she enjoys judging the Westminster Dog Show, juggling chain saws, and making up fake hobbies for herself in her biographies.
James Stanley is a New York transplant (originally from Maryland) who works as a banker by day, but burns the midnight oil creating comics full of the things he loves: in no particular order, '60s-'70s Japanese/American/French cinema, fashion, vaporwave, and the perfect waffle. He still misses Maryland crabcakes, but he'll manage!
