Neko always knew what she wanted to be when she grew up, an intergalactic Space Pirate living a life of excitement and adventure in the Sea of Stars.

Tommy Benoist is an animator and illustrator from Florissant, MO. He has been drawing for as long as he can remember and enjoys making up new characters.
(Perhaps a little too much. The number is probably in the hundreds now. Send help.) He recently graduated from St. Louis Community College with his AFA, having majored in Graphic Communications. While initially focusing on graphic design he soon discovered the intense suffering that is the process of animation was far more appealing to him. He wishes to someday continue his academic journey. However, as appealing as 30 years of student debt sounds, for the time being he is focusing on building his savings. That’s about it. Oh, also he’s the defender of Love and Justice, Aviator Sun!
PltnmGhost is a 26 year-old living in the middle of nowhere who grew up as a misfit among his peers. After years of self-reflection and an unhealthy obsession for cartoons and video games from around the world, he had formed one central goal in mind. To persue a career in the arts ranging from comic book illustration all the way up to the glorious tedium that is animation! In order to do that however, he had to survive the grueling trial that was public school. Spending over half his life honing (but far from perfecting) his craft, he was able to use his skills to enter St. Louis Community College. Which was where he graduated with an Associates in graphic design, along with some keen animation knowledge to boot! Now he hopes to take the world by storm with his talents, but first, he has to learn how to stop procrastinating with anime, manga, and fighting games. Yyyyyyep… :U
