Mocca Arts Festival Exhibitors List
EHA Comics (with Pie Club)
Illustrator/cartoonist Eddie H. Ahn is based in San Francisco, CA. His children's science fiction series "Wish the World" is ongoing, and his most recent illustration work can be seen on instagram (@ehacomics).
Grown in the Southeast and soon to be graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Eleeza juggles working in illustration, comics, and visual development. Sadly, actual juggling is not an included skill.
Eli Neugeboren is the author of Sharkary vs Tsunami Crab, Volume II: Hurricane Island. His books include Sharkary vs. Tsunami Crab Volume I, The Long Shadows, and Tidewater. He has an ongoing social media series called #drawingthenews. His work jumps genres and could be defined by a persistence of excessive line work. Eli is an illustrator and professor who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and sons (who are the inspiration for the boys in Sharkary).
Ellis Rosen is a cartoonist and illustrator living in Brooklyn, NY. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review and The Millions. He is the illustrator of a children's chapter book, Woundabout, from Little, Brown and a contributor to the Eisner-nominated graphic anthology Yiddishkeit: Jewish Vernacular and the New Land.
Emily and the Yea Girls
The YEA Girls is a NYC-based studio collective run by a plucky trio of 20-something-year-old illustrators who are ready to take on the world. The artists behind the acronym--Yan Gabriella, Erica De Chavez and Angeli Rafer--met by chance at a networking event, and since then have worked together on exciting collaborative comics and zines. Also joining this trio is Emily Dahl, an East Coast Illustrator coming to the big city for this year's festival.
Originally from Texas, Emily draws inspiration from all the places where she has lived which includes Minneapolis, MN; Miami, FL; Tromso, Norway; and now Baltimore, MD. Her work, primarily personal narrative comics, is informed by experiences and relationships developed in these different places. She loves to draw people and also loves to roller skate.

Launched in November 2015 by a coalition of 13 comics publishers from eight European countries, Europe Comics is working towards the creation of a pan-European comics catalog in English and digital, a website with comics information for both readers and professionals and the organization of author tours and events across Europe and the USA.
