Liam is an animator and another fellow Animation Student from Sheridan College! He specializes in traditional hand-drawn animation and his work feels like it’s ready to come alive! He isn’t online too much but he’s probably gonna animate some hit shows you’ll see coming around.
I’m SO excited to have Liam on board with guest art this month. He’s an exceptionally talented, humble, and overall great guy and I’m so glad I can share his work with you all. He’s a master draftsman with such a solid sense of form, space, and shape as well. Just look at this drawing! I love how he draws Sol and Lunik. They look like they’re straight out of an 80’s cartoon and ready to kick butt.
Spike is a comic artist, illustrator, and fellow 4th year animation student at Sheridan College. Their work focuses on bright colours, mechs, music, comics, and interactive fiction! You can find him on social media as @spikesamuels!
Spike has such beautiful, charming, and bright art! I’m always so inspired by his use of soft colours and textures in his work. Spike draws inspiration from classic video game, retro anime, comics, and tabletop gaming. His art style feels like a comic is coming alive and it’s hard not get hooked to it. I was so happy he offered create guest art for me! Just look at this badass drawing of Iona with those candy colours! I dare say he draws Iona better than I do (it’s true).
Jade is a comic artist and illustrator from Ontario, Canada, and also a very cool, genuine, and awesome gal! She also goes as @jelajade on all social media!
Jade specializes in slice-of-life, watercolour, and character-based stories. Her work has so much charm and heart in it. You can’t help but fall in love with it instantly! I LOVE this little omake-style comic about these two. I sure wish I could’ve made this canon haha! Jade also ran the comics club at Sheridan and I can’t deny how much of a big inspiration she’s been in my life!! Her positive energy and passion really got me into reading and then making comics myself. To have her create guest art for me is kind of surreal for me haha!
Tan is an absolute ray of sunshine and she really blew me away with this piece! Look at just how lovely Astra and Neb are! Tan has supported Intercosmic since it's humble begins and still continues to pour me with love and support, and for that I am always so grateful!
Tan is an illustrator and animator currently based in Ontario, Canada! Tan can be found on all social media platforms as @tanriika and you definitely should check out her work! Tan's work is so fun and energetic! She uses really bold line work with bright and soft colours so well. Her linework is so elegant and smooth yet she makes it look effortless! She is currently working on her own story and comic so keep an eye out for Overload when it debuts!! I'll probably be screaming about it when it drops so you'll probably know about it.
Just look at this absolutely AMAZING illustration of Tera and Hydris?! They're so beautiful and adorable. I wish I could look this good.
Satourni is an illustrator, comic artist, and creature designer from Ontario, Canada! They can be found on all social media as @Satourni . They're work balances the strange, unearthly, and beautiful all so so well! Everything they draw has a delightful and eclectic charm as if a storybook illustration just came to life! Satourni is such a versatile artist whose style carries this whimsical energy to it! I was so glad they offered to draw art for Intercosmic. Satourni has seen Lunik and Sol from their humble beginnings as a silly homework assignment all the way to protagonists of a full blown comic!!
I've been friends with Erica since first year of college and I was so glad she offered to do guest art for me. And she absolutely killed it with this piece and I figured it would be perfect to kick-off the summer months! And look how fun this is?! Poor Lunik. He's not made (literally) for the summer months.
Erica is a Hawaiian artist and animation student at Sheridan! You can find her as @MitsuEMachi on most social media. Her work is so incredibly dynamic, fun, fluid, and alive! Erica really captures the energy of each character she draws so well. She fuses both shonen spirit and cute characters all in one so seamlessly! Erica also creates some really fun and exciting characters and stories of her own too, from fun action superhero teams, to angsty white haired boys, to extremely cute killer girls! I love them all (and her) with all my heart.

Victor is a comic artist based in Toronto!! His work is SO FUN, diverse, and energetic. He makes all kinds of quirky, eclectic, and colourful stories and characters. Just look at this absolutely adorable comic! I was so glad he decided to participate in the submission. Please check out more of his work here.
Victor is a good friend of mine and in truth, he's one of the key people who inspired me to get into comics and make Intercosmic in the first place! I remember shyly pulling out my laptop in Sheridan's Comic Making Club just under a year ago to show him my original concept sketches of Intercosmic! I wouldn't be here without his support and encouragement in a tough time of my life so I'm very grateful. And look where we are now - haha!
Delaney is a concept artist and fellow Tabulit creator based in Australia. She's the creator of Avalia - you need to read it if you haven't already! It's a beautiful medieval fantasy webcomic and I can't recommend it enough.
Delaney's work has an illustrative and painterly quality to it as if a manuscript just came alive! It's so charming and bright so please check her out. She's is a wonderful friend of mine and I was SO happy and honoured that she offered to do guest art for me. She just dropped this in my inbox out of nowhere in Winter, and after that I thought "well darn, now I have to start official guest art submissions!". And so... that's why I organized Guest Art! I had to do her beautiful illustration some justice (and proper promo).
