Skylar is a freelance artist, illustrator and cartoonist.
She grew up on a farm in central Illinois where she spent the majority of her spare time re-enacting Star Wars with her older brother and drawing comics at the kitchen table. She went on to study graphic design at Western Illinois University, where she learned she didn't want to be a graphic designer. Her education afforded her the skills to pursue illustration, however, and more importantly - comics.
Her biggest influences have been from the work of early and mid 20th Century illustrators as well as a variety of comic and children's book artists over the years. She also draws a lot of inspiration from her love of horror films and comics. In her spare time she still draws comics at her kitchen table.
