Williams, aka Alexander Blue, is an illustrator with a love for hand lettering, children’s illustration, and ‘Naïve art’. He is the creator of IllustrationMundo, letterPLAYGROUND, PROCONist, The creACTIVISTs, and he is currently writing and illustrating several funny picture books.
Katya Grokhovsky is an artist who works across many fields, including performance, video, installation, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting.

She goes by the name Yeo Kaa and she draws from experience. She reminds me of a very young Clementine Kruczynski because of her eternally changing hair colour. Her style, on the other hand, is reminiscent of Yoshimoto Nara’s artworks dabbed with LSD-fied explosion of colours and emotions. Kaa is from Laguna, Philippines.

I am a Swedish illustrator and designer who works in London. I love character design, doodling and patterns, being inspired by childhood memories, my bad sense of humour, and my love for nature. With my constantly growing Animal Kingdom collection, I combine all that with a bit of “nature strikes back”.
Patrick Kyle is best known for his unconventional narrative work, creating worlds that are somewhere between a delirious hallucination and a sweet dream. The zines he produces, in particular, are a delight. Seemingly working non-stop, he is always trying his hand at something new or experimenting in some way.

Alana Dee Haynes has real knack for illustrating the unseen. Using ink pens and magazine clippings, the Brooklyn-based artist transforms the human figure into something organic, almost plant-like, and yet cooly seductive. She seems to have mastered the overlap area between illustration and photography as she adds tattoos and, patterns, and fungal growth to beautiful model images.
