Ella Sanders

Ella Frances Sanders is a writer and illustrator who intentionally lives all over the place, most recently Morocco, the UK, and Switzerland. She worked with the Techstars-backed company Maptia for most of 2013, illustrating their vision and helping to shape their storytelling community.

At the moment her work constitutes writing things, drawing things and over-thinking mostly everything to do with anything. She is not afraid of questions, or bears. Her latest project is a book titled Lost in Translation, a work filled with illustrations depicting words from languages that do not have a direct translation into english. Michael and Ella delve deep into language, travelling the world and grief bacon.

Michael speaks out on voter ID legislation, identity, familiarity, fraud, temporary amnesia and the bake sale brownies.
