Brandon Pogrob is a cartoonist, illustrator, and graphic designer based in Brooklyn, NY. His self-published comics range from anxious, amorphous blob people to absurdist accountants eating donuts in hell, to loose, pencily journal comics. Also sometimes Guy Fieri is there. Brandon works both digitally and traditionally, combining a blunt, poetic writing style with loose, flowing line-work and tone. Brandon really likes ginger tea, sloths, and keeping his desk hella tidy.
Brooklyn is a mixed-media artist whose focus is custom greeting cards. She started Hello from Brooklyn in 2013 when her side art projects began to profit & earn requests from outside her family & friends. She has since illustrated several children's books & a yoga manual. Her "real job" is a yoga teacher & studio manager, but drawing is her true passion & she hopes to one day make it more than just a hobby. She resides in Brooklyn with her husband, daughter & two chihuahuas.
