Announcing VAUGHN MARSH as guest at Avalon Expo 11!!!
Guest sponsored by Engen Books.

Vaughn Marsh (he/him) – Illustrator

Vaughn grew up in Moncton, New Brunswick. As a kid, he could always be found drawing or with his face buried in a book or two. Once Vaughn hit junior high, he developed a more serious interest in art, from pottery and sculpture to painting in all sorts of mediums. At NBCC Miramichi, he took Intro to Animation, and then a 3D Graphics and Design course. After leaving college, he focused on commissions, ranging from pin-ups to murals.
After moving to Nova Scotia in 2007, Vaughn started to take part in the artist alleys at local conventions like Hal-Con and Animaritimes. He soon launched his personal brand, Sweet Loots, consisting of cute, brightly coloured watercolour greeting cards, stickers, accessories, and prints focusing on cats, monster girls, and pop culture figures.
At Hal-Con 2010, Vaughn met Jay Paulin of Ink’d Well Comics and soon discussed working together. They started with the poster and cover to the Ink’d Well Comics charity anthology What The Wild Things Read, and have worked on many projects together since then including Infantasy, Sci-Fact Comics, Fearsome Fables 1 & 2, Super Galactic Space Explorers V1 & V2, and Emma Awesome: Undead Rockstar

Through Jay, he met the lovely folks at Engen Books. He’s collaborated with them on the cover and interior illustrations for Michelle Churchill’s The Last Tree, the cover for Pulp Science-Fiction From The Rock, and the cover for Slipstreamers: New Worlds! New Adventure! He has also worked with Michelle Churchill on the cover and interior illustrations to her D&D 5e adventure titled Out On A Limb.

Vaughn now lives in Ottawa, Ontario with his husband Kevin. In his downtime, Vaughn enjoys a variety of hobbies including: playing TTRPGs, board and video games, bird watching, gardening, listening to podcasts, and attending the local indie wrestling shows!

Vaughn can be found at https://www.sweetloots.ca/

Thank you to Engen Books for sponsoring Vaughn.
