Inspiration for Golem & Odd comes from all over the place — '30s pulps, '40s noir, '70s and '80s sci-fi, astronomy, geology, myths, mysticism, Saturday morning cartoons — but a few influences are so important we'd be remiss not to mention them by name: Mike Mignola, China Miéville, Octavia E. Butler, Jeff Vandermeer, Ursula Le Guin, Robert Holdstock, Rebecca Solnit and H.P. Lovecraft.

J.E. grew up in Tarzana, CA, a suburb of Los Angeles that was once the ranch of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Growing in such fertile literary soil, it was impossible for him not to become a sci-fi geek. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

Chaim draws. He stopped for a while to pretend he was in an 80s band. Then he got old and soft so he started drawing again.  

See his illustration work here and his new character art here.

He's a tweeter too. @Chaim_Garcia
