Windy & Wallflower is generally a two-man-show but a lot of our work is helped along by folks who collaborate with us on projects or who are hired help for various things (covers, guest pages, etc??) and we wanted to use this page to feature them a little bit more! All of the following images are click-able and will take you to the relevant pages!
WEBRINGS & WEBCOMICS…
Hiveworks helped us with all of our webcomic websites and the comics.windywallflower landing page! We owe them a lot for helping us make all of that happen and for making all of those pages look fancy fresh! Not to mention Hiveworks hosts a lot of queer indie webcomics. Their library is chock full of fantastic artists and stories you should definitely check out!
PUBLISHERS WE’VE WORKED WITH…
Tas is currently publishing two books with Razorbill starting with her debut graphic novel, Lost Time.
Winter made a short comic for their anthology: When I Was Me: Moments of Gender Euphoria.
ARTISTS WE’VE WORKED WITH…
We’ll stand by any of these folks! We’ve worked with each one in the past on various projects and they’ve been extremely professional and patient and kind. Check out their work if you have a chance!
Gisele is a long-time friend and our editor at Hiveworks (they help us a bunch with August
ine!)but they have also done us the honour of creating a beautiful cover for Prism Knights: Bronze.
NJ has worked with us on a couple of things and is an absolute delight every time. We’ve helped bring Anagenesis V1 to life for her but she is also responsible for the beautiful cover for Prism Knights: Lamplight.
Jeff’s a buddy of ours whose work was, honestly, far too gorgeous to pass up (and you shouldn’t either).
We were over the moon to get a chance to work with him on Prism Knights: Juniper.
Hatters has been a massive longtime inspiration to the both of us with her strong character sketches and buckets of wlw art. Luckily we got the chance to work with her on Prism Knights: Coquelicot.
Isa is a close buddy and an absolute powerhouse. They’ve helped guide us through a lot of back-end printing & shipping & etc. She’s also responsible for the beautiful Prism Knights: Anthology cover.
Corv is always an amazing person to work with and a huge talent. They’ve helped us with merch (and have been a huge inspo for years). They are responsible for the artwork for the cover of Prism Knights: Sapphire.
MCKAY & GRAY
These two are absolute powerhouses in queer comics and prose and a huge inspiration to Winter! We’ve helped one another out through a lot of different projects & provided work for Winter early on in their career!
We’ve been running in convention circuits in the same circles as Steff for ages before we became buddies and were elated to get the chance to work with them on Prism Knights: Velvet bringing such a gorgeous cover to life!
OTHERS WE PARTNER WITH…
These are all the folks we work with to promote and make the work that we make! There’s always way more people with hands on our work making it possible to continue making the work that we do.
