Hi! I’m Jamie Isfeld. I’m a full-time new media developer and former broadcast media web monkey who loves to illustrate and paint and make pretty things.

I love comics about realistic people and I’m a big sucker for incredible background and layout illustration.

I’ve spent many years honing my at-convention retail experience, and am the former volunteer advertising coordinator for the Central Canada Comic Con.
