Hello there! Andy Hopp here. Welcome to Mutha Oith Creations. This is the cookie jar in which all my creative endeavors are contained.
Nice to meet you.
Since 2001 I’ve been a freelance illustrator, writer, and game designer. My specialty is strange monsters and other whimsical yet twisted bizarrities, but I’ll draw just about anything (even that). I am the creator of the acclaimed Low Life RPG by PEG, Inc., the founder of The Wanderers Guild (a series of socially developed game products), the author and/or illustrator of dozens of games, children’s books, and other products, and the proudest dad this side of Gomez Addams.
Along with a bunch of other amazing and hardworking peeps, I host some fantastic events, like Con on the Cob and Oddmall, both of which to which you should get your shiny wazoo posthaste.
I live in Green, Ohio with my awesome wife Heather, our two ridiculously amazing (and amazingly ridiculous) daughters (Iliana and Aurora), and three metric buttloads of pets, including two cats who can’t seem to remember where the litter box is. Pictures of me without my tongue showing are as rare as diapers on an oofo.
Krystal Ann – Executive Henchwoman
Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to Ohio where I attended Kent State University majoring in Art Education. After graduation, I remained in the area and started my own company, Live.Dream.Create which designs and creates handmade plushies for all the world to love! I hope to one day become the Queen of All Plushies and use them to conquer the world. I sell my plushies through various regional craft and art shows and via Etsy (www.livedreamcreate.com). It is an exciting experience with a good deal of room to showcase my creativity.
I began working with Andy as his Executive Henchperson in July 2013 and now try to keep him organized, which is a full time job! I also help Con on the Cob and Oddmall run as smooth as possible allowing Andy a few free moments to create more of his fantastical worlds! Andy has given his seal of approval to my endeavours saying, “She’s thumbs up, in my book. A real solid citizen and a top drawer representative of her ilk.”
Gregory Dunn – Fan Relations / Lowly Henchman 21
Gozer the traveller. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you. Then came the late 80’s when he arrived as humble man servant and general dogsbody, Greg.
After wandering the wilderness suckling from the teat of the American and European educational system, I have landed at the intersection of various ley lines known to the ordinary folk as Green, Ohio. There I was given a job (on a trial basis as I can be easily detracted by the cool refreshing taste of Diet Coke) to help Krystal help Andy do his thang! I also interact with cats and people quite nicely.
David Hopp – Event Director (West Coast)
What’s up everybody? Greetings from the Emerald City of Seattle! I am Andy’s older brother David, and together we are going to be bringing Oddmall to the Pacific Northwest.
Since 2007 I have worked in the retirement industry while pursuing my own artistic endeavors. I have put on many events over the years and think Oddmall: Seattle will be one show you will not want to miss.
I live with my daughter Natasha and our cat The Amazing Mr. Willie Bubblesworth.
Heather Hopp – Boss of the Boss, Co-Conspirator, Writer, Editor, Creator, Muse…
Hey there! I’m Heather, Andy’s wife and co-conspirator since 1998. I’ve had interests in science fiction, fantasy, and art my entire life. I spent my childhood reveling in the nerdy arts.
I have a background in English, Science Fiction, and Anthropology. In college, I was co-owner, editor, and writer for an independent local music magazine turned website. Later, I started editing for RPGs including The Wanderer’s Guild Guide to the Boundless Blue and Silvervine Games’ Core Rulebook and Cyrus Worldbook.
I also write and create art. The Wanderer’s Guild Guide to Cultures (tentatively titled) was my concept and writing has yet to be published. I also make fascinators, headbands, clips, and collage art under the name Surreal Siren, and was a contributor to The Regretsy Book under my former business name (Heather’s Feathers and Fluff). I’m a regular vendor at Oddmall, so stop and see my creations next show!
At MOC, I help Andy wrangle all the details, we hash out ideas, and I try to keep things running smoothly. I’m always on site at Con on the Cob, where I play second in command and manage the hospitality team. Currently, I’m the editor for a collection of Low Life based short stories you should be hearing about soon.
I’m very proud to be a part of the creative and gaming communities. It’s been a wonderful environment to foster creativity, understand nerdiness, promote learning, and pass it down to our daughters – the next generation of bizarre geeky creativity.
