Joshua Kade Porterfield is a Somerville artist & illustrator by way of a small little town in Arkansas. We crossed paths doing the awesome Somerville Holiday Flea at the Armory. Shout out: Somerville Flea! He received a BFA from Henderson State University and a Post-Bac certificate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts here in Boston. Purveyor of Fine Oddities: his art is both humorous and fun, with lots of quirky sass. As stated in his bio, "the dark, fecund atmosphere of the American South is a major influence on his work."

Curtis is a JP-based artist & skateboarder, who graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2014. He is working on getting his smartie-pants Master's in NYC--but you'll also find him teaching little youngin's, Ceramics. Him and long time girlfriend, Ashley Latta were married August 2017 on the Cape in the most stunning and sweet ceremonies ever. They each wrote their own lovely, inspiring vows.
Curtis describes his art as "paintings," often using found objects and paper alongside paint to create bold, abstract environments and collages. All his art is available for purchase by contacting Curtis directly.

Mildred is really good friends of my sister, Paula. They both graduated Milton High in 2005 and then ventured off to college. Mildred studied Animation at Sheridan College, where she fell in love with storytelling. Not soon after, launched her first webcomic series in March 2014 called Agents of the Realm. It wasn't until a few years ago that my sister exposed me to Mildred's comics and stories... I found out that they freakin rock! She uses vivid colors and strong female characters to really engage readers in an adventurous fantasy, where the characters are diverse and powerful. In Agents of the Realm, stories reflect college years and the coming of age most women feel in all transitions. Her talent only continues to grow & build more captivating relationships within a fantasy concept of each new chapter. Follow along!
