Tatsuro is the author of the picture book “The Lotus Seed” and the comic “The Earthling.” He is the owner of studio PEN STILL WRITES and teaches illustration at AOYAMAJUKU.
Tatsuro has an unparalleled eyes for capturing the subtle and sublime details of moments in one’s daily life, whether a quiet domestic tenderness between a couple, or the feeling of traveling through a wide open landscape.

Ako Castuera is painter, sculptor, and textile artist working in Los Angeles, California. Her sculptures and paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the US, her work can be seen in “Adventure Time,” for which she was a storyboard artist and writer for several seasons.
A native Angeleno, Ako’s roots carry rich material and intangible cultural heritage from Okinawa and Mexico into contemporary American culture. Ako’s most recent are ceramic sculptures that combine animal, human, landscape and architectural elements, describing an interwoven profusion of life that calls into question our hierarchically ordered beliefs around human / non-human, animate / inanimate.
Frontier #17: Lauren Weinstein
Lauren Weinstein is creator of the Ignatz nominated weekly strip, “Normel Person,” and author of “The Goddess of War” and “Girl Stories.” Currently she is working on a new book called “Calamity.” For Frontier, Lauren will be sharing personal reflections on the hopes & fears of a parent, directed as a time capsule to her children about these surreal, turbulent times.
Frontier #18: Tiffany Ford
Tiffany Ford is a cartoonist and animator in Los Angeles. She worked previously as a color stylist on Steven Universe, and as a storyboard artist for Clarence -- and is currently working on a new project for Cartoon Network. Tiffany’s personal comics are a hilarious glimpse into the fun & frustration of contemporary daily life.
