Alba Ballesta was born in a hot day of 199X somwhere along the Mediterranean. She co-founded Weba! Studio (animation and indie-games) while finishing her major in Fine Arts, where she continues to work as Art Director. Her works are influenced by the three corners of a sacred triangle:
I: An eclectic vision on the arts, including references such as orientalist paintings, the universe of Jean Giraud and the art in motion by Hayao Miyazaki, but also the poetry of García Lorca and the Japanese Haiku;
II: A contemplative vision of everyday reality, which brings inspiration for her typical compositions filled with local birds and plants;
III: A strong connection with the dreams realm, where she finds the seeds of her inspirational tree.

Michi Mathias makes hand-drawn illustrations and observational comics with pen & ink and watercolour, somewhat wonky whilst still reasonably accurate and detailed.
As an illustrator she enjoys the problem-solving of making complicated concepts clear. She is especially happy when she can help people doing good things for the world, working with universities, community organisations, small biz, environmental campaign groups and others. She has self-published a few zines and comics, sometimes about the absurdities and annoyances of real life, and is drawing her first graphic novel which re-tells a true story from 1897.
When not drawing, she might be found playing the fiddle or banjo and has done various freelance work over the years from renovating old houses to environmental work in Japan to making vegan sushi.

Leah Moore has written comics of all kinds for the last fifteen years, most recently a magical girl bird-folklore story Conspiracy of Ravens for Dark Horse with her husband John Reppion, and drawn by Sally Jane Thompson. She has about half of a novel written. She has used a Dakini Oracle deck since she was sixteen and finds it to be accurate to a fault. Sarcastic might actually be a better word. She has three small, extremely noisy boys, and finds peace and tranquility in scrolling storage solutions for her camper van on the internet. She is obsessed with houseplants, fat models and intersectional feminism.

We’re delighted to announce that Liminal 11 will publish Fez Inkwright’s Folk Magic & Healing: An Unusual History of Everyday Plants, in November 2019!View Post
978-1-912634-11-8 * £11.99 * Published 2nd October 2019
Throughout history, plants have played a key and vital role to our existence. Whether as a foodstuff, medicine, building material, or religious aid, the way that we re-purpose and domesticate plants has shaped a core part of the development of human culture. Hedgerows and wild-growing areas are a vital part of our countrysides and, through our codependency, have become ingrained in the myth and lore of humanity. Many of the old wives’ tales about plants were created to spread knowledge of their medicinal and nutritional properties, and many have become entwined with stories of local spirits, deities, and more ancient legends.
Folk Magic and Healing is, ultimately, a collection of many of these beliefs, aiming to inspire a greater appreciation of our wild plants and countrysides.
This stunningly illustrated treasury of the folklore of flora is packed with insight, lore and the revealed mysteries of everyday plants – perfect for gardeners, writers, folklorists, witches and general knowledge buffs alike!
This NEW edition takes Fez Inkwright’s gorgeous self-published book to the next level. Now in hardcover with metallic gold foiling, plus wonderful extra material, gorgeous illuminated letters and a drawing for every single plant illustrated in Fez Inkwright’s amazing style!
Fez Inkwright is an illustrator, author, and folklorist. Her greatest passions are botany, nature, primitive religions, and folklore, which flavour most of her work. For the past eight years she has produced work for children’s books, hand-drawn maps, and tattoo design, and now spends her time indulging in conservation work and writing. She lives in Bristol, UK, with two cats and several hundred bees.
Mini Meditations on Friendship is my first ever illustrated book, and to create it has been a wonderful experience and life-long dream come true! Truly. I was so thrilled when Liminal 11 asked me to collaborate with them, and equally surprised when they asked me to share the process of creating this book with you.View Post
Last year, when we tweeted out looking for someone to create an original webcomic based on tarot or mind, body, spirit themes, we heard back almost immediately from Kaylee Pinecone. She developed an amazing idea that we knew people were going to love, and – if our social media and blog numbers are anything to go by – now we know how much it’s resonating with you!View Post
