I’ve been meaning to paste up some work from my friend Hilary Thackway for ages. As the Creative Editor of the highly anticipated Canberra-based zine, Elodi, Hilary’s illustrations have a whimsical style and a subdued humour that make the parentheses at the corners of your mouth turn upward. Her female characters possess a playful vulnerability – you almost want to fetch them a cup of tea.
