Lisa England – Creator/Writer/Showrunner/Producer

“I’m a storyteller, visual artist, marketer and all-around geek from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I tried being a lot of things, until I figured out that I was meant to tell stories, so I got busy telling them. In October 2012, I released the first of a 48-episode dark fantasy serial called Rise of the Tiger. For some reason, an adventurous group of artists decided to join me. When I’m not whipping up more hybrids of steampunk and fantasy, I’m launching a comic book company called City Beast Studio, teaching writing, and biking to a coffee shop . . . to write about writing at my blog JourneyCraft.

“I grew up in Hartland, Wisconsin, about 45 minutes west of Milwaukee, but I went to school at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities. I recently graduated, earning a degree in Studies in Cinema & Media Culture (big title, little money). I’ve worked in the music industry for about five years, everything from interning for a London record label to booking bands for a Minneapolis venue. Now I’m pursuing my dream of working in film. Expect plenty of videos from yours truly!” Connect with me on LinkedIn.

Julie Roth – Artist

“I am an Illustration Major and 2013 graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. I possess a variety of artistic disciplines including traditional 2D media, graphic design, model building and digital rendering. My passion lies in landscapes and conceptual worlds, often mixing architecture and the human form. I am an avid hiker and backpacker.  I find much of my inspiration and ideas by exploring the unbeaten paths of our National Parks. I like to create my work traditionally, using pen and india ink. Digital rework is used for complex compositions and final enhancements. ” Visit my portfolio.
