Life is filled with all kinds of situations. the silly ones, clumsy ones, shy ones, awkward ones, and so on. In these moments, we can all relate to each other. However, these little moments, no matter how terrible may seem, they’re the ones that make life as it is. And if you ever thought that you’re the only one experiencing that, artist Evie Hilliar proves you wrong.
Hilliar is a comic artist that illustrates everyday situations, problems, and doubts she has. All the overthinking one does, this artist has found a very expressive way on how to release that thought to the public. Growing up with the internet, Hilliar’s love for comics came naturally. Her work is very relatable, and just so comforting because of the transparency it shares. We all have our little doubts, insecurities, and her work reassures us that the rest of the world feels like that. Earthwonders reached out to her to know more upon her work.

“My background as an artist was pretty much being raised by the internet. I always felt like a bit of an introverted outsider in the real life so growing up the online space was the only place I could feel like I fit in. That’s where i discovered webcomics and all I do is a homage to that,” explained the artist for Earthwonders.
The artist said that her work is inspired based on how her brain works. ” I’m mentally ill (and medicated for over three years) and I find drawing how I’m feeling a good way to relax or vent.”
For many artists, coming up with ideas can be the most difficult thing, yet for Evie it’s different. ‘My working process isn’t too challenging – this is what I love doing and I do it for fun, if it was too hard I wouldn’t do it! It’s hard balancing this with my day job, I think that’s the tough part – finding time to do what I love,” added the artist.
