Marcelo Matere has the job that every kid once dreamed of: he creates giant robots for Toys, Games, T-shirts and Movies! He has already done work for Transformers and G. I. JOE from Hasbro, Marvel’s Iron Man, Spider-Man and Avengers, Penn Zero: Part Time Hero from Disney Animation and many others!
Marcelo also illustrates books and Transformers comics for the American market since 2004!

James Lloyd has been drawing in Vancouver for twenty years plus, whether it's been for local animation companies, the comic biz in LA, or his own independent works and gallery pieces.
In 2000 he began pencilling the Futurama title for Matt Groening's Bongo comic company and has been the regular artist on the book since. In 2008 the collected Simpsons/ Futurama Crossover Crisis storyline for which he provided the art was collected & became a bestseller.
Recently he has completed works for First Second Books and Boom! Comics. He would still rather read comics than learn his numbers.
A self-professed "hack of all trades", Shaun has a background that encompasses a broad range of creative mediums. Most of his work in comics was in dedication to Transformers for IDW Publishing: co-founding and administrating the massive Transformers: Mosaic project, bringing exposure to the work of a number of artists still on IDW's core roster, contributing special material to various collected editions, and co-writing Transformers: Spotlight - Jazz.
Shaun lives in Vancouver, and is currently exploring the medium of photography under the branding of Reflector Lightworks (@reflector.lw on Instagram), when not too busy contemplating how many issues of Uncle Scrooge he'll need to get by with after civilization collapses.
Robin has illustrated his own brand of independent comic books including Zombie Jesus, Lil’Natas, and Captain Spaceman. He is currently working on issue #12 of his flagship title, Champions of Hell.
Robin is also an instructor at Emily Carr University, teaching various courses in illustration and graphic novels. At the university he has developed and hosted his own annual artist convention entitled “Emily Con”.
Lending his extensive knowledge of the graphic novel medium, Robin has been a guest speaker for the Vancouver Art Gallery's renowned “Krazy!” and “CO-MIX: A Retrospectiove of Comics” exhibits.
Born curious and raised on a steady diet of comic books and Saturday afternoon double features sealed John's fate at an early age and the world was spared another 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" feature. During rare downtime, this proud father sips from Russell's Teapot and contemplates Shrodinger's Equation, all while visiting with a delightful legion of imaginary friends.
