Sockie is a local artist born and raised just outside of Halifax, where her love of the maritimes inspired her to stay in the province during her ongoing stint at NSCAD. Although her foray into comics is still in its earliest stages, you can find her debut webcomic The Sea Cried Out on tumblr, and a multitude of ocean and mermaid-themed art here at DCAF. At her table, you’ll find everything from prints and stickers, to buttons and private commissions.
