Emily Felt is a lover of stories and characters, and has long dreamed of seeing her words transformed into beautiful pictures such as the ones in this project. She's had a variety of different career paths over the years (lobbyist, makeup artist, improviser, etc.) but through it all, she's always been a writer. Currently, she's also writing screenplays and pilots, but has fallen in love with this genre and community and can't imagine not being a part of it.
Laura West has been illustrating stories since childhood, when she'd ask her parents to write down the words so she could draw the pictures. After spending many grown-up years working in various industries, she quit a cushy corporate job to go back to school, graduating from Art Center College of Design. She currently works as a concept artist in the themed entertainment industry and draws all day, and spends nights and weekends with Olive. It has been both a labor of love and a dream come true to illustrate a graphic novel.
