Bri Pi Art


Brianna is an aspiring comic and Video Game artist, head artist at Bri Pi Art, one third of the Youtube channel 'Those Girls Over There', and creator of The Flower Girl, Until Then, and Oddity.

Her grandfather is a watercolor artist and he taught her the ways of traditional watercolor when she was very young.

And she hated it.

About 6 years ago though, she started working with them again and fell in love. She took her traditional knowledge and mixed it with pop art added in a love of Fashion drawings and Japanese Paintings and created her own style!

In 2013 her mom got to meet Jen Yates from Epbot and Cake Wrecks. Being my mom, She showed off some of Bri's art, and Jen said "You should try selling at conventions!"

So the next year, she got a table at her local con, Planet Comicon, and fell in love with the nerdy, geeky, welcoming world of Comic and Anime Conventions. This will be her third year of touring conventions.

Running an art table, and coercing their many friends into free labor the two would soon be unstoppable!

Thanks to their wonderful lackeys and awesome customers they have been able to continue to do what they love, c for the past six years.

David Faught-Artist Esquire


As an artist of pinups and horror, this year I decided to combine my passions and start up a new line of spooky inspired senoritas!

I, once again, am separating my genres and am back to the fun-loving artist you sort of know...or at least say, “Hey, that guy kind of looks familiar!”

Summer Vaught


My conversion to the dark side came at an early age. Once I learned they had cookies and immortality, they had me. You can still see the dark influence in my art to this day. But beware, if you look at my paintings too long, you may feel the darkness seeping in...

The Art of Timothy Groshong


I am a Springfield local dedicated to exploring both the light and dark side of art with acrylic paint being the medium of choice. My body of work is juxtaposed by nature with some pieces being influenced by children’s cartoons and books and others by dark art as a whole and still others that teeter on the edge.
