Alex E Clark

I write/draw comics about ladies, cats and body horror. I think the best compliments are the ones when someone reads a few pages, drops the comic and walks away wiping their hands on their jacket. Or when someone emails to describe a dream about their tongue turning to vines and suffocating. Like, I keep it pretty cute, but I love Junji Ito and Becky Cloonan and I hope some of that comes through. I love the good fairytales where grisly misfortune is met with grisly retaliation. I coordinate an annual comic/zine launch called Hallozeen and it's exchiting to see what people make each year.

Angie Spice

I love story telling and have been creating stories in my head for as long as I can remember. This compels me to draw, where I can bring my characters to life and explore the settings. Originally Courier was a bet. I would create a comic book and self publish it from concept to print within a month's deadline. I learned all the process as I went. It's the most exciting plunge I've ever taken. After all, I was tired of waiting to be handed an opportunity and I decided it was time to make way for myself. Especially, because I wanted my stories to be heard. I want to tell the stories I searched for growing up, and I realised It's up to me to deliver. In 2016 I won the Australian 24-hour comic book challenge with Galah Girl and have also produced an autobiographical zine Angie in Have You seen La La Land The response for the Courier series has been overwhelmingly fantastic, infectious and truly fulfilling.

Chris Marks

Chris Marks draws and sleeps way too much which kinda leaves no room for socialising but they manage to compensate by writing about how their day was in a comic then selling it to people. This probably isn't very healthy.

Claire Murray

I am the classic "since I could first hold a pencil, I have been drawing" kid. Though drawing had always been a hobby of mine, I only began 'properly' drawing comics after I finished my degree in Animation and Interactive Media. I work predominantly digitally, but occasionally dip my toes into the traditional, ever trying to see if I'm missing out on something. I was one of the recipients of a Squishface Micro-Grant, which helped to fund the publishing of my first mini-comic and a table at the Homecooked Festival in 2015. Since then I have started a little comic series called 'Living With It', which follows the day to day life of a young woman managing her diabetes and her duties as a superhero. With each issue, so far, I have also tried a different technique in creating the comic.
