Eilidh Nicolson is a local indie artist who who likes exploring gender through her work, which includes the comic Girls from Mars. Find her on twitter (@HeyItsAyls) and http://heyitsayls.tumblr.com.
Adam Smith has been involved in small press comics for 15 years, most notably the ‘Khaki Shorts’ anthology which ran for 28 issues from 1999 – 2011. However he got his biggest ‘break’ in 2013 when he managed to secure an interview with his favourite cartoonist, Wally Fawkes aka Trog – and the results were published in The Comics Journal. In his talk he’ll be discussing Fawkes’ 60-year career drawing the satirical newspaper strip ‘Flook’ and why it should be regarded on the same plane as ‘Peanuts’ and others. www.tcj.com/looking-back-at-flook-an-interview-with-wally-fawkes
Letty Wilson is an artist and writer from Scotland, who has just finished an MLitt in Comics Studies at Dundee University. She will be speaking about how her identity as an asexual and aromantic artist has shaped her creative output and how thinking about representation affects character design and story. https://lettydraws.wordpress.com/
