Returning for another Mocca Fest, Erin L. Candrilli and Marisa D'Amato are two New Jersey based artists. Erin spends every free moment she has writing, drawing, and studying the art of visual storytelling to implement in her own comic and illustration work. While Marisa is an illustrator and concept artist who loves creating original characters and the worlds around them.
Eli is an illustrator and professor who lives and works in Brooklyn. He writes & draws "The Long Shadows" and "Sharkary vs Tsunami Crab," & has drawn stories for Doug Latino and Gideon Kendall's auto-bio series "WAIT.. It Gets Worse," and is illustrating a story by Cameron DeOrdio for the upcoming anthology, "Corpus: An Anthology of Bodily Ailments", edited by Nadia Shammas. He also works on "Drawing the News", with over 1300 drawings to date in the series.
Emily and the Yea Girls
The YEA Girls is a NYC-based studio collective run by a plucky trio of 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 SCBWI event and have since been worked together on exciting collaborative comics and zines. Also joining this trio is Emily Dahl, an East Coast Illustrator from Bowie Maryland, coming for the festivities in New York.
Emily Curran is an Illustrator and Animator living in Connecticut, often traveling to NYC for work. Her personal work revolves around ghosts, the supernatural, and just anything that gives you the creeps. Despite the creepy theme, her work leaves you attached to unusual characters and looking for more of their stories.
