Artist Spotlight: Joshua Beeking
Work Title: Melancholy
Biography: I’m Joshua Beeking, an illustrator from Québec City that works in both traditional and digital medias. I have been working on sharpening my skills for over 10 years. I received formal education at Quebec’s O’Sullivan College, where I earned a diploma in 2D/3D Animation and Rendering in 2012. I won first place at the UQAM digital creation contest in 2011 for best character designs.
I’m currently a full-time freelance artist with more than 200 commissions completed over the years, and aim to share my little touch of creativity with the world!
Artist Spotlight: Joey Hazell
Work Title: Cottage Country Comic AU
Biography: I’ve been drawing since my mom first put a crayon in my hand as a way to help me express my emotions. This resulted in bedroom walls getting covered in elaborate story-filled murals, and I haven’t really stopped since (though my choice of media has changed a bit). My pronouns are she/her, and I currently I reside in the Toronto area, trying to figure out how to make this comic-making, illustration-drawing thing work. With a strong love for narratives, my primary focus is on making fan art for whatever fandom has me most recently captivated, and trying to create my own queer, nerdy works of fiction to put out in the world.
