Tran Nguyen, a Georgia-based artist by way of Vietnam, creates imagery meant to personify the psychological impulses of our psyches. Known as mynameistran on deviantART, her work is an entrancing concoction made of one part surrealism and three parts fantasy. She describes her work as a psycho-therapeutic support vehicle that explores the mind’s dreams, desires and romantic leanings.

Jon-Foster is a compelling conceptual artist. Seen as an authority in the world of fantasy art, Jon has an ability to be both a master & a teacher of his well-honed craft. Using bold colors, an energetic imagination, exceptional lighting, and askew angles, he creates an irresistibly dark visual treat. With a keen appreciation for the unpredictable qualities in watercolors, Jon's work pulls a bit of the unknown into his painterly style. Currently, Jon-Foster is a judge in deviantART's "Train Your Brain Contest," ( which is giving away scholarships & free classes.

Christopher Shy Biography

Christopher Shy was born in Kentucky in 1972. He is a self-taught artist, who felt a particular affinity to Andrew Wyeth, as well as Rembrandt. His first published illustrations were at the age of 17, under a pen name. In the early 1990s, his studies would lead to the fusing of canvas and digital. He formed Studio Ronin in 1996 and he would soon emerge from among a group of young digital painters to become one of the leading figures of this early movement. His large tempura paintings would be exhibited in several cities around the world. It was at this time the first collection of his work was published, The Art of Studio Ronin, followed by Ronin. Christopher Shy would go on to co found Ronin Arts, Artemis Publishing, and Black Watch Comics, with Michael Easton. Under is his direction, Studio Ronin would branch into visual design, and complete work on a dozen feature films. In 2005 Christopher Shy would start the graphic novel, Soul Stealer, with Michael Easton. This trilogy would take 5 years, and became critically acclaimed. For his latest graphic novel, Christopher Shy traveled to Alert Bay, on Cormorant Island, British Columbia, to research The North End of the World, a fictionalized account of Edward Curtis, and his time with the Kwakwaka’wakw, written by Dave Hunsaker.
Christopher Shy is artist or author on 16 graphic novels.
