We have a quadruple threat of creators! We'll be joined by Ariela Kristantina, Apila Pepita, Katie Skelly and Sara Valta. All come to us from the far reaches of the world, so a unique opportunity to meet and chat with these creators. Straight back from Thought Bubble Festival, they will be joining us on Tuesday, September 26th from 6.30-9pm for our monthly Drink & Draw.
Ariela Kristantina is an artist based in Jakarta, Indonesia. She really put herself on the map with her current series InSEXts, a stunning Victorian paranormal series with writer Marguerite Bennett. We're really excited for her new series, Mata Hari, coming out next year with Berger Books. She has previously worked on Deep State, The Logan Legacy, and Wolverines.
Apila Pepita is a Finnish comic artist and illustrator. She came on our radar with her amazing graphic novel MOSSDASH, the story of a non-binary transperson living on the streets. They eventually have to turn to prostitution to earn money. The story also follow Petra, another sex worker, and how their friendship develops.It's apart of a larger series looking at prostitution.
Katie Skelly is an American comic-creator. We fell for her work with Nurse Nurse, a collection of her mini-comics. She continued with Operation Margarine, and it's bad-ass leather toting biker chicks. It's great to have her with us and her brand new graphic novel, My Pretty Vampire. The story has a very 1960's vibe, it's follows Clover, a young vampire trying to take ownership of her life.
Sara Valta is a graphic designer and comics creator from Finland. She is currently working on a webcomic series, Alchemilla, names for the fictional fantasy city it takes place in. The story centres around a consular at a crisis centre for magical creatures.
