These are so awesome, Hilary. I love your style. Your cartoons bring me so much joy that I started wanting to maybe give cartooning a try (not professionally) for my own mental health and some fun. Not sure where to start. I wish I could learn from you but I know you are in New York- are you aware of any good cartooning classes in California or maybe some books? Thanks for sharing your art!

Lisa my best advice for now is to just buy yourself a sketchbook and start doodling on your free time :) I also think the more comics you read the more you’ll want to draw. Go to your local store and find whatever they have in the graphic memoir section! Right now I’m reading Diary of a Teenage Girl and Solutions & Other Problems.

Thanks! For someone who gets hung up on the researching and "learning" to procrastinate the "doing," that's great advice!

Sketchbook ✔️

Off to the bookstore in search of graphic memoirs :)

Thanks again. Have a great week!

If you wanna get in the habit of writing and drawing, you can also buy my new guided journal What Did I Do Today!

I’m only in despair about my work when I’m not doing it. When I write and draw all things are possible. That’s where my “soothe” comes from: Doing it, not just thinking about it.
