BRITTANY CHENTEALE Women and bright pops of colour are the feature elements of Brittany Chenteale’s work. Watercolour is her primary medium, though she dabbles in various forms: from quilting, to pottery and mixed media. She has been a working artist for over 8 years, and is primarily recognized for her bookmarker project, and more recently her Camgirl Tarot Deck. Her art style is a mix of Japanese animation, as well as American comics to create a distinct “cutesy” style. Find her on twitter @BritChenteale

JASON MATTHEW CLARK was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. Highlights include a fifth grad jewelry-making presentation, winning middle school’s costume contest as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, four close encounters of the first kind, and her.
