Alex Woolfson grew up loving science-fiction and action movies, but never got to see what he really wanted to see—kick-ass genre stories with real heroes who just happened to like other guys. After Alex started a successful career as a filmmaker in the Bay Area, he soon realized the best way to make the “big-budget” adventure stories he craved would be as full-color comics. Inspired by the sci-fi thrillers he loved as a kid, he teamed up with illustrator Winona Nelson to create the science-fiction graphic novel, Artifice.
In addition to writing and publishing comics, Alex enjoys eating other people’s cooking, talking to strangers in the far parts of the world and spending weeks at a time on silent meditation retreat. He currently lives in San Francisco where he is writing scripts for his latest story with gay action heroes, the superhero webcomic The Young Protectors.
Winona Nelson, artist for the graphic novel Artifice by Alex Woolfson, has worked in comics, video games, and illustration for the past ten years. She trained in classical realism applied to entertainment art in San Francisco and worked in video game studios before going freelance. She now focuses on comics, fantasy and science fiction book covers, and card game art.
