About Us

Little Mo & the Nonhuman Crew

[Srayla Tip, photo by Doug Millison]

Srayla Tip
Cartoonist, tattoo artist, rising star of the East Bay underground arts scene, by way of a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodian border and tough Oakland streets. His dedication to depicting raptors soars to surprising heights. Tattoo, sideshow culture, streetart, graffiti: been there, done that.

Steve Porter
This Dallas poet, novelist, painter, artist of life & educator decided the mostly Mexican-American students in his Oak Cliff school needed to dream better dreams. So he’s written some…with their help. In his heart: on the road with Kerouac.

Doug Millison
Novelist, editor, publishing entrepreneur, teacher, grizzled veteran of the Great Interactive Multimedia and World Wide Web Crusades of the Late 20th Century, pynchonoid, husband and father. Created Morph's Outpost on the Digital Frontier, and Blaster -- two ground-breaking magazines that came out of the San Francisco Multimedia Gulch/Silicon Valley scene in the mid-'90s, co-author of Firebrands! Building Brand Loyalty in the Internet Age in 2000 and developed, wrote & edited Return on Design by Ani Phyo in 2002. Wishes he had the sweet temperament of his college buddy Porter. Aspires to be nonhuman.
