About the Writers
Natalie Dupille is a cartoonist and illustrator based out of Seattle. Natalie is a maker of comics and zines that are autobiographical, whimsical, and reminiscent of an upbringing in the Pacific Northwest. Her most recently completed project is an eight-month illustrated travelogue detailing her adventures through Oceania and Nepal.

Eroyn Franklin is a comics artist, illustrator, educator, and public artist. She has written two graphic novels, the Xeric-grant-winning book Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory and Detained, which is part of a Wing Luke Museum permanent exhibit at Seattle’s former INS building. Eroyn’s comics have been listed in The Best American Comics: The Notable Comics of 2013 and 2014 and she was on the short list for the Slate Cartoonist Studio Prize for her work on Medium.com. She is the co-founder of Short Run Comix & Arts Festival, which celebrates indie comix and self-published, small press and handmade books from the Pacific Northwest and around the world.

Kelly Froh has self-published over 45 mini-comics and zines including her newest 36-page all-comics magazine The Weeknight Casserole Collection. She has performed her comic stories at the Hugo House’s acclaimed Literary Series, Gridlords in Portland, Lit Crawl, Pecha Kucha, On the Boards, and at Bumbershoot. Kelly is the co-founder and managing director of Short Run Comix & Arts Festival, now in its fifth year.

Mita Mahato is a cut paper and comics artist, as well as Associate Professor of English at the University of Puget Sound. Her creative work has been featured in Drunken Boat and The Globe and Mail, and has been exhibited in Seattle, Toronto, Baltimore, and London. Using found paper to suggest the transformative power of art, Mita’s cut paper comics explore themes related to loss and grieving.

Gina Siciliano is an artist and musician who lives in Seattle. She graduated from Pacific Northwest College of Art, and for the past few years she has been researching, writing, and drawing a three-part historical graphic novel called I Know What I Am: The True Story of Artemisia Gentileschi. Selections from this work were on display at Fantagraphics throughout August and September of this year, and last fall she spoke about the project at Breadline. Gina is also an oil painter, and the drummer and vocalist for two rock bands. www.ginasiciliano.com
