Brittany Coxon is a designer and illustrator, maker of comics, card and paper-cut art. Her work appears in a handful of the Paper Jam Comic Collective anthologies, including Art... and that and History... and that. She has survived two 24 Hour Comic days, creating a comic in each - with varying quality and levels of sense.
When she's not making things out of paper, Brittany can be found designing websites and graphics, and taking photos. She likes a good cup of tea and is happiest when making things.

The dude making comics under the 'Oscillating Brow' moniker has been part of Paper Jam Comics Collective since the very start, and has probably been to more PJCC meetings than anyone else. He doesn't know if this is a good thing, but kinda wears it with pride anyway. He has drawn stories for all of the Paper Jam anthologies, and very occasionally makes little comics himself. You can see a full list here. If you want to read some of his comics right now, he has a fair few things up on the PJCC 'Paper Jams' art blog, which you can click here to see.
He also does other stuff sometimes too.
Brett joined the Paper Jam Comics Collective in 2009 when he was in his final year of uni, being dissatisfied by stereotypical student "getting wasted being the peak" social life. He joined with the hope that he could finally meet like-minded people, something he didn't find at uni while getting his BA. As it happens, it was probably the best decision he has ever made and is now a proud member of the collective.
He is a mythological fantasy novella writer from Newcastle, although he has interests in making small press comics also, with material adapted from his novella work. He is planning to make use of his degree to gain further qualifications and ultimately become a teacher.
His hobbies include voracious reading of comics, books, mange, and as much fantasy and sci-fi as his endless appetite can consume, gaming: especially Phoenix Wright, Pokemon and Zelda and watching so called "cult" TV such as Dr. Who, Misfits, Peep Show, Sherlock, The IT Crowd, Black Books etc.
His work has not reached the publication stage yet, because he has been far too busy tweaking his novella universe and getting it ready for the world. However, he has had work featured in the Paper Jam ...And That anthology series.

Jack founded the Paper Jam Comics collective in 2007 while working at Travelling Man part time, where he ran the Small Press service for people self-publishing comics and looking for distribution. He is a comic book artist and illustrator from Newcastle who has been self-publishing comics for the last 10 years and reading/making them for his entire life. Between 2008-2011 he delivered workshops in schools, libraries and youth centres teaching young people how to make their own comic books. This eventually led him to pursue a career in teaching, and he now teaches Year 4 kids about all kinds of cool stuff, including comics. Other pleasures in life include playing and making table top games, creating something that sounds like music and eating enormous breakfasts.
Jack has had illustration and comic work featured in the magazines SCREAM, Starburst, Narc and The Crack, produced promotional material for Newcastle Student Radio, the Travelling Man comic book shop and A Bit Crack Storytelling, as well as creating posters for Portions for Foxes Promo and EP/album covers for O'Messy Life and Rob Heron & the Teapad Orchestra. He had illustration and comic work exhibited at The Mushroom Works Gallery as part of their ‘Quite the Character’ showcase, which ran from 18th July – 29th August 2009. His work has been distributed nationally and sold worldwide. His comics include The Gentleman Ghost, Costume Party, John Henry Split My Heart and The Big Bang.
