Oneshi Press Credits

Meet the Team.

Oneshi Press is run by a writer-and-illustrator team: Lynsey G and Jayel Draco. Together, we crush mountains with our bare hands, rescue dragons in distress, smite vicious tyrants with a single staggering blow, and basically keep this ship afloat. Sometimes it’s glamorous, but mostly it’s just what we do.

We couldn’t do it without the help of our extremely talented group of contributors, however. The sheer amount of talent on our roster completely boggles our minds sometimes. Like right now, here we are, just . . . boggled.

Learn more about us here. And remember, you can support our efforts—and keep our growing team fed—by becoming a subscriber on our Patreon page. (Seriously, the amount these people eat also boggles the mind).
