About Us

Alchemist & Druid Formulations is a two-person creative team from Ontario. We create illustration, prose and comics in the genres of fantasy, horror, and romance. Themes we enjoy include historical settings, twists on classic mythology, and LGBT+ casts. We collaborate heavily on all aspects of our projects, from idea generation to the final product.
