Benjamin Chee likes drawing comics: it is often painful, but it helps organise his thoughts, and express them coherently. Following his adoration for food, he has self-published several books set in the Charsiew Space food-centric universe. He also has short stories collected in the anthologies Liquid City Vol. 3, LONTAR Issue #5, Asian Monsters.

Max Loh started drawing comics as a journey of self-discovery. From there he experimented with self-published journal comics and fan anthologies, and hopes to put out a longer format book in the future. His work can be found in Liquid City Vol. 3 and Maple Comic’s Driving Malaysia anthology and online at http://paperperil.tumblr.com/
Jerry Teo is a core member of OIC Singapore and wanted to be a comic book artist as a teenager. It only took him a 20-year detour of animation, military & technical illustration and teaching to get back to his roots. His most notable comic to date is the silly and often regrettable antics of Rex Regrets.

Twisstii / Minqi is an illustrator based in Singapore. Driven by an insatiable need to doodle on any possible surface, she figured being an illustrator would combine her love of fresh paper and graffiti.
Her work has been described as whimsical to cute even though she prefers her work to be more dark and strange. Other than squeezing unsuspecting cats, she counts various vintage ephemera as her inspiration.
