Cai Vail was raised by wolves in the woods of New England, and is a third generation painter/illustrator. Ms. Vail studied painting at Montserrat College of Art in Massachusetts, and has since been published and exhibited nationally, and featured by the likes of Juxtapoz and Hi Fructose, among others. She was once a professional escape artist. Then she pedaled tourists around on a bicycle rickshaw, giving guided tours of a town famous for executing witches. Later, she directed a particularly rowdy branch of an international cabaret figure drawing club. Now she's a mama to her brand-new infant son and a full-time freelance creator of things. Ms. Vail enjoys ostentatious bicycles, fancy cheeses, esoteric religious history, and giving zerberts to her baby's tummy.
