Mark Toner, Art Director and co-founder of Shoreline of Infinity, has been drawing comics since the age of 6. Nowadays he writes and draws the Tales of the Beachcomber and the webcomic Magpie of Space (magpieofspace.blogspot.com/) as well as short, crazy videos on Blender.
Stephen Pickering (the one with the hat) has created some astonishingly brilliant covers and interior artwork for Shoreline of Infinity.
A creator by nature, Illustration only makes up a small part of his portfolio. Stephen “gave up” art for over 20 years, before being dragged back to it!
He has at times been both a street artist and publisher of greetings cards, but is currently spending a lot of time on his imaginary planet of Narr 6. .
