My name is Clay Rodery, and I make pictures for a living. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, just down the street from NASA Mission Control, which accounts for a good portion of my personal subject matter. A lot of my work is about conflict, and while I might allude to it, the resolution is not always in the picture as well. I want to challenge the audience, to make the hairs stand up on the back of your spine, to place you right in the heart of some mysterious other world. I’ve done work for the New York Times, the Atlantic, HBO, the New Republic, California Sunday Magazine, among others. Now sit down and enjoy the show.

Detroit’s suburban step-child, Michael Chabot, is a fabulous up and coming illustrator, art educator, and publisher.

After he persuades his seemingly feral son to go to sleep for the night, Michael enjoys making coloring books, applying for public art projects, and collaborating on books with his fellow creatives.
