WordPress Cover – Pencil on Paper Team

nice to meet you!

Since we’re meeting so many new people, we thought it was time to re-introduce ourselves.

Shane Kroetsch is Pencil on Paper’s author, watercolour painter, and creator. When he’s not writing dark and introspective fiction, you can find him building projects out of old junk, painting sad little blanket ghosts, riding and restoring vintage bikes, and shaking his butt while the vinyl spins.

Currently, Shane is fabricating PoP’s library bike, and writing his next series. Find him @shanekroetsch

Kaleigh Kanary is Pencil on Paper’s editor, illustrator, and creator. You can often find her singing loudly to her cats, binging horror movies, drinking bottomless cups of coffee, and drawing spooky monsters. 

She is currently working on a children’s book, and the next round of card designs and art prints. Find her @kayrazyness.
