An interview series featuring notable people whose lives intersect with the world of pens. Becca Hillburn is an comic artist and illustrator who loves to use all kinds of media in her artworks.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Becca Hillburn, and I'm an illustrator, comic artist, and art supply blogger. I'm currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, but I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. The majority of my paying work is freelance illustration for other studios, but I also participate in various collaborations such as comic anthologies and group art projects.
Currently, I'm working on a children's comic inspired by The Borrowers, as well as working with a writer on a children's book about an inventor granny. I also attend a handful of conventions centered around comics or cartoon art and offer my services as an illustrator for hire, as well as a variety of mini comics and knick-knacks. I specialize in creating comics for children and really enjoy creating work for this demographic. I also enjoy completing private commissions for individuals.
