About TEAMatelierMUSE

Sales 35
On Etsy since 2016

Husband team growing speculative fiction comics.

The group started as MUSEbasement in the early 2000's. Simon hosted meetings with now-author AE Prevost, teaching young people art principles and self publishing, having earned a publishing degree shortly before.

As the demands of life continued, it grew difficult to meet and the band was dissolved in 2011. Since the original group only did fan comics as a way of practicing, Simon considered making a new imprint to create original material under, this is the atelierMUSE original conceit. The team, however, has gone way out of the realm of sequential art, assisting in the design of both online and real-world assets, and artistic 'odd-jobs' of various sorts.

Simon is self-taught artist and envisioned a life in the comic industry, drawing for a living. Instead, the skills he learned in running a group efficiently translated into a job in process design. He applies this knowledge in the public sector, hoping that the work helps workers help others.

Kris started out as an avid Sailor Moon fan, being active in that community creating content and helping in events until moving to Montreal to join forces with Simon. Kris appreciates the slow-paced life the city provides - and the inexpensive living costs - which allow him to run the business full-time at home.

In 2019, atelierMUSE welcomed a new team member, Bilo, who 'helps' out around the house and maintains our sanity. As the runt of his litter and beset with allergies, he relates well with his new family.
