DePlour is a formally trained multi-disciplinary Queer Artist currently residing in the Southern United States.

Atom Basham is Chicago-based artist with a studio in the historical Flat Iron Arts Building. He shares his studio with his Boston terriers, Walter Watson and Geronimo Jackson, and doesn't eat very many vegetables. When not redirecting thrift store paintings, he aims his more original work towards his long-term goal of illustrating unusual books for unconventional children.
Andrew is interested in writing that challenges the notion of what fiction can and should do, all the while nodding toward the dime store paperback that tops every guilty pleasure reading list. He creates work that combines pop, grit, and philosophy in ways that are surprising, sentimental, and strange.
