Hey y'all! My name's Honie and I'm a book and comic illustrator.
How did I get into illustration? Well, you know when, as a kid, you're asked what your dream job is? I always said I wanted to be "an artist, an author, and a smoothie maker!"
I left my sunny Southern California hometown to study Illustration and Sequential Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. With one or two smoothie-related jobs in between, I'm now a freelance illustrator based in Greenville, South Carolina.
Besides that, I spend most of my free time drinking a lot of coffee, playing badly the mandolin, and doodling on important tax documents dragons.
If you'd like to work with me, please reach out to my agent Alex Gehringer through the Bright Agency

I love sci-fi. And Halloween.
