Hireillo Comic Anthology #1

This 36-page comic anthology is a collection of eight stories written and illustrated by eight artists who hail from different backgrounds and parts of the world. We gave each of them a limited number of pages and told them to do what they do best.

Springtime by Sian Bowman, a new Hireillo background illustration

We’re proud to present a new Hireillo website background Illustration. Children’s illustrator Sian Bowman created the artwork (tentatively titled “Springtime”) and we think she did a fantastic job putting it together. For us, commissioning an illustrator to create a website background is a tricky prospect. We represent a wide range of illustrators, and the website’s background illustration needs to be unique but not distract from the work of our other members. It’s a fine line to walk, and Sian managed the task admirably.

Portfolio Layout Changes

The thumbnails are now four times the size to show off your work better, and we’ve reorganised how your news is shown in your portfolio to make this feel more chronological and not look so much like just another gallery of your artwork. We hope you like the changes.
