Dave Perillo was born in 1974, the same year Wham-O introduced the Slip N’ Slide…coincidence? In 1st grade, Dave revealed in his autobiography “Me Book”, that when he grew up he would like to be Ziggy. This ambition was deflated by 2nd grade when he realized that A) Ziggy is not real, B) Ziggy is completely bald, and C) Ziggy wears no pants. While the thought of going throughout life sans pants was somewhat appealing he decided to pursue his second choice, a career in art. Dave draws inspiration for his work from many of the following sources: 1950’s Sci-Fi Movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna Barbera, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock & Character Advertising Icons. Dave currently resides in the burbs of Philly, works as an illustrator, believes that bowling is the sport of kings and a bag of Swedish Fish is a seafood dinner.

Dean Kotz is a comic book artist, illustrator, and concept artist. Some of the many comic titles he’s drawn includeDungeons and Dragons (IDW), The Red Panda (IDW), Charmed (Zenescope), Poe (Boom!), Trailer Park of Terror(Imperium), and Krampus!, a series he co-created for Image Comics. He also does illustration work for many rpg and tabletop games. Dean lives in Brooklyn and is currently working on an original sci-fi graphic novel for Insight Comics.

James Dracoules and Christopher March are the co-creators of the independent horror anthology Trailer Park of Terror, published by Reading, PA based Imperium Comics.  In addition to shepherding 14 issues and 2 Halloween specials of the comic, they also served as Executive Producers of the Trailer Park of Terror film.

Rob Ciampa: I am an illustrator/designer living in Bucks County, PA.  I work in a variety of styles and mediums, both traditional and electronic, but my favorites are pencils, pen and ink.  I have been fortunate to be able to use my talents to help promote the township and local businesses of Perkasie, where I live.  I am also a self professed car nut and have created many privately commissioned pieces for classic car owners.  My dream is to create a graphic novel or comic series about moon dragons, a creature my daughter and I made up years ago.

Jimmy “DJ Miro” Mirynowski hails from the suburbs of Philadelphia.  At a young age Miro took interest in music production and mixing, and officially started his DJ career in 2005.  Since then he has created his own mobile DJ company, performing at events such as weddings, parties, and corporate events as well as DJing for various charities including The Make-A-Wish Foundation.  He uses one word to define himself as a DJ, which is contrast.  Blending every type of music to create a musical experience for every audience.
