Over the next month, we’re going to highlight artists, panels and events that are coming to Penguicon, and we’re going to start this week with the Artist Alley! (Note: Part 2 is available, as well.)
This year’s Artist Alley is a huge and diverse group of artists who each work in a different format or style.
We asked them to tell us a little about themselves; we have so many, we’ve broken them up into 4 posts, so check back later in the month for more.

Crystal Mielcarek – is a Detroit based illustrator. Her work has been in local galleries and shops and most notably her design was used as the official poster for the Detroit Zoo in 2010 which remains in the permanent collection. Adorable animals in desperate situations plague her work but with a myriad of dazzling colors. The work is reminiscent many things but the methodology remains consistent. This helps keep it lively and whimsical while maintaining a satirical complexity upon a second glance.
