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 ( 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.      .
