Élana Camille is the lifestyle & fashion illustrator, artist & creative content producer behind Élana Camille Creates. She specializes in fashion, food, travel and lifestyle illustrations. Working with media publications and fashion, beauty & lifestyle brands, as well as small-businesses, she helps them to add an illustration element to their marketing or business plans. When she’s not illustrating, she’s travelling, eating, reading, baking, obsessing over fashion and spending time discussing all of that over on her blog.








headshot of Geordan MooreGeordan Moore of Quarrelsome Yeti

Geordan’s imagination teems with strange creatures coming out of the woods and water, anthropomorphic objects, understated quips and over-the-top titles.

He is interested in myths about his homeland, which he skewers in his weird art and witty illustrations. Geordan’s drawings depict exaggerated Canadiana, epic ocean scenes and characters inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, gross-out humour, horror clichés, tourist kitsch and Robert Crumb.

With degrees in fine art and design and a lifetime of drawing and art-making behind him, Geordan’s earned the right not to take himself too seriously.

He got into printmaking by making gig posters and hasn’t looked back. Since 2010, when he founded The Quarrelsome Yeti, he’s been at it full-time, creating art prints and apparel bearing his trademark illustrations of fantastical beasts, zombie beavers, feasts of meat, and more. Basically, Geordan’s the guy to call if you have a hankering for something strange.
