- Chuck Bordell
Writer/artist Chuck Bordell. Source of comic art, pin-ups, fantasy/sci-fi illustrations and various caustic ramblings on whatever Chuck has on his mind at the moment. If you are easily offended, you might want to back up now and save yourself from a seizure.
- Heidi Carstens-Bennett
I got into MisCon several years ago (feels like a totally different world now) through my ex-husband and our roommate at the time. Meeting the MisCon crew at a cocktail party, I thought, "OK, these folks are freaky."
- Jonathan Crummett

- Ted Tenold
Ted is a professional sword polisher and expert on Japanese Swords. He has been working as a polisher of traditional Japanese swords, both antique and contemporary, since 1996.
- Tiffany Toland-Scott
Tiffany Toland says she was "all but born with a brush in her hand." As a child, she always knew she wanted to be an artist and spent hours painting and drawing to increase her artistic skills. To this end, she dropped out of high school to focus more on her artwork, and she obtained a GED shortly after her sixteenth birthday.
For a short time she attended art school with an eye toward earning a degree in game design, but she quickly realized that it wasn't the life for her. Instead, she began promoting and selling her artwork on her own.
Her work has since been licensed for a variety of products and has been purchased worldwide.
- Robin Walker
Robin learned how to draw while in the sciences because basic skills and high standards were rarely taken seriously in art schools, as is still the case today. Art is generally perceived by art schools and the public as therapy or a way to socialize while one's hands are moving. The art trends of the 20th century have been seldom more then the sanctification of the inane. Do get her started on this topic.
