HughEbdy (Hugh Ebdy)

Hugh Ebdy hails from Moray, Scotland, where he grew up in a small village by the sea alongside his two younger brothers. He is presently studying for a Masters in Architecture from the University of Dundee, and has been presented awards for 'Best in Year' for both first and second year. In September Hugh will begin his third year at Dundee, and while architecture is the career choice he is studying for, Hugh has many other passions that he wishes to pursue in life. Among these is digital art and illustration.

At around the age of sixteen, Hugh bought himself a pen tablet with the idea that he could teach himself digital art to the stage where it could start bringing in a bit of income. Fast forward a little in time, and now, through various competitions and commissions, it helps to supplement his student lifestyle (and keep him out of debt!). His hope is that his digital art will one day allow him to work for a film or game establishment; though he is just as happy working on his own projects. In November 2015 Hugh will host his first solo exhibition. This will be in his local library in Elgin, and there he hopes to show his experimentation with a mix of digital and traditional work.

Jordan Crane

Jordan Crane was born in Los Angeles, California, which is still his home. He was educated in public school and attended USC for engineering. He self-published the first issue of Non in 1997. The anthology grew quickly, and by the fifth and final issue, it was an impressively designed package wrapped by a silkscreen cover, featuring top tier talent as well as his own Xeric award winning graphic novel Col-Dee. During this time, Crane published his first graphic novelette The Last Lonely Saturday, a simple story of love and death, which has become an enduring favorite.

Crane's specific particular design aesthetic could be found across his work, featuring warm covers accentuated by an eye for colors playing and fighting together. Crane's illustrated and design work has been critically recognized with several awards. In 2010, Jordan's biggest book design project, The Art of Jaime Hernandez was published by Abrams books. That same year, he launched, a website portal featuring many of today's top cartoonists, a natural follow up to his previous editing work in Non.

Right now, Crane is finishing his graphic novel Keeping Two, a collection of short stories titled Lower the Living, and the fifth issue of his comic book Uptight, which will feature his first scifi story titled the Dark Nothing. His current work can be found in his ongoing comic book Uptight, published by Fantagraphics.
