Emily Schnall is an artist who grew up cleaning bones, drawing cryptids, and reading too much about dinosaurs. These days she illustrates comics, greeting cards, beer labels, and only the occasional cryptozoological creature.
When she’s not busy drawing pictures alone in a room, Emily likes to pet cats, forage for mushrooms, and teach science communication skills to fellow artists. She can’t stop making life size papier-mâché sculptures of extinct animals and is running out of places to put them.
