Veronika Hecko Wu
Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Veronika Hecko Wu and I am the illustrator and designer behind Lexigrams, a fun visual approach to learning English vocabulary.

I grew up in Slovakia surrounded by words. The patriarch of our family was my grandfather, a translator who was always playing word games -- usually in multiple languages at the same time.

An interview series featuring notable people whose lives intersect with the world of pens. We got the opportunity to chat with Emily Drouin, an illustrator and writer with a passion for great storytelling.

Emily Drouin
Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, my name is Emily Drouin and I’m an illustrator, painter, writer, and comic book artist from Manchester, New Hampshire.

How did you become a comic artist?

I started taking art classes at the Currier Gallery of Art School when I was 5 years old, and have been drawing and painting ever since!

Growing up, art class and the library were my two favorite places to be. I’ve always had an active imagination, and been inspired by the worlds that are created through reading books. Some of my favorite children’s books were Matilda, Jumanji, Amelia Bedelia, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and Strega Nona, and I believe these definitely had an impact on my art.

Lihit Lab The Design Mind Company Binder

The Design Mind Company Binder by Lihit Lab is a chic, modern planner with a vintage touch. The cover's timeless look is inspired by antique books, and is made of smooth faux black leather. Open it up, and you'll find either a sleek black interior or pop of bright color! A flexible spine allows this binder to fold back on itself, making it easy for you to jot down notes without needing a hard surface.
