About the Artists
Sam and Ari met and started dating in college. With their skills combined, they chose to use their powers for good instead of evil and started to make comics together.
Getting to tell a story that resonates with people is incredibly powerful, and becomes even more impactful when a community forms around it. It takes a lot of time, energy, and commitment to make comics, and it’s the support that we receive in any form that keeps us motivated to create more and to be able to give back to people that value our work and want to see more.

Sam is an illustrator of many hats, and a klepto of many pens. She currently resides in Lancaster, PA with her handsome girlfriend (refer to below) and their zoo of small animal children. She is an avid tea collector and is fully at peace when she can lay in some grass and pet a horse’s nose. She probably draws herself a little too much.

Ari is a cartoonist from Pittsburgh, PA currently living in Lancaster with her beautiful girlfriend (refer to above) and her pesky cat. She enjoys making comics, drinking coffee, history and being a merciless DM. She dislikes going outside and eye contact that lasts longer than the twitter character limit.

That is one of the most rewarding parts of this journey. So thank you! Your interest and support in our work means the world to us!!

About Our Comics

Woodlands is a webcomic launched in August 2017. The story follows Edwyn, a wide-eyed satyr whose overconfidence leads to the poisoning of his best friend, Renny, rendering him with an unconventional ailment. Forced from their small wooded village, the two must traverse the harrowing road in search of Cashel, Edwyn’s grandfather, as he is the only one skilled enough to craft a cure. However, time is not on their side as an unusual spike in dark magic has made the world at large ever more dangerous. With nothing but Edwyn’s minor magical ability and Renny’s quick thinking, the two must uncover the root of the dark magic and find a cure before all is lost.

Goldfinch is a multi-volume graphic novel series. Volume One is currently in production and is set to release in late 2019.
The Goldfinch is a lounge illegally serving potions and elixirs to patrons wanting to escape the harsh war-torn reality of the city of Portica. This high fantasy turn of the century gangster noir follows ex-factory worker, Leah, after she makes a bold statement to the higher-ups about poor working conditions. Little did she know that a prospect for her next job lands her at The Goldfinch as the getaway driver for the gang running it.
She meets the owner of the lounge, a suave, musically inclined eccentric by the name of Oran, and is thrown into an undercover world of crime, bootlegging, and... hog melons? The two must navigate double-crossings and routine bombings from the war, as well as their kindling feelings for each other.
Goldfinch is a found-family story meant for teen and up audiences. It explores the power of ambition and the resilience of true love.
