UysFaber Inc is a publisher of print and webcomics. Located in Toronto, we employ local writers and artists on all of our projects. Currently publishing Lessons Learned, a webcomic based on real events; HardWear, a sci-fi-noir print comic available at Paradise Comics; and Totem Sacred, a modern supernatural-horror comic that is available in comic stores across Toronto.
We are interested in new artists and inkers who live in, or close to, Toronto (We proudly support and encourage Canadian creators!), and want to collaborate with UysFaber Inc. Art samples can be emailed to email@example.com. We do not accept unsolicited plot/comic proposals. Sorry!

John D. Kartigan
(aka Kartigan, aka DK, aka CLöWNBäBÿ) is a freelance artist from Toronto. Aside from custom painting guitars and skateboards, he is the featured artist illustrating HardWear. He also turns tricks on the side to make ends meet.
A comic artist living in downtown Toronto. His latest work, Totem Scared: Trigger, is Dov's first time writing and illustrating one piece. Likes to go with the flow, work with good creators...and has been told that he is very good-looking. A student of OCAD, he understands that the key to good art is never backing down from a challenge. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hometown: Toronto, but now living in the US. Independent freelance artist with experience in many types of media. Likes reading fantasy novels and wasting time in MMORPGs! Blog. Twitter: @MMOGC
Matthew was born and raised in Toronto. Since he first learned to read, he's had a comic in his hands. A self-taught amateur artist, he is just breaking into the industry with the help of UysFaber. Being a horror genre fan, Matthew is excited to be illustrating Jaclyn Armstrong’s Salt Road.
Is a wannabe gamer first and illustrator second, which means he own lots of games but never finishes any of them. He is a self-taught artist who dreams of becoming a full-time illustrator, doing covers for comic books, video games, magazines, and movie posters. The artists who are his biggest influence are Drew Struzan, Adam Hughes, Gil Elvgren, J.C. Leyendecker and Norman Rockwell. Boring art stuff aside, he can make lightsaber noises with his mouth, and is a sucker for Transformers and Nerf guns.
Aaron Feldman has been writing comics for over ten years, ever since he and a buddy created the not-especially-creative yet incredibly endearing superhero Cheeseman in grade 4. A freelance writer, he has also written, directed, and starred in many shorts for the comedy troupe The Wrong Box. Aaron's more recent work includes the short story “Safe,” which was inked by comics star Ty Templeton, for the comics anthology “Holmes Inc.” In addition to writing for UysFaber, he is currently working on a short film.

Rebecca Slack was too lazy to write this bio, so she got Aaron Feldman to do it instead. Not to be confused with the singer/songwriter responsible for the hit single “Friday,” Rebecca is a freelance illustrator living in Toronto. A former student of Toronto's Max the Mutt School for illustration, you can find her work at http://rebeccaslackillustration.blogspot.com/. While you're clicking links, you should check out Aaron's new film project at http://www.indiegogo.com/pettythieves, because it's awesome.
