Hattie Kennedy

Staff Writer

Hattie is a comics scholar and obsessive reader from Brighton(ish) but living in Glasgow, Scotland where she is working towards a PhD in Canadian Studies, more specifically about Québécois comics and politics. Mostly she reads comics about other peoples’ lives because she’s nosy like that. She is an enthusiastic, if not experienced, seamstress and could win Olympic Gold Medals if only Procrasti-Sewing and Procrasti-Baking were recognised sports. A not insignificant percentage of her free time is spent worrying about whether her cats like her as much as she likes them. She is resident Quebec Comics Monkey over at Graphixia where she likes to lay claim to being more Canadian than she really is. Twitter: @HattieK

Instagram is very definitely my happy place online. When everything gets a bit too much for me I like to hide myself away with a cuppa and spend a happy half hour scrolling my way through pictures of kittens, puppies and the gorgeous artwork that the creators I follow produce.

Here are a few of my favourite comics creator instagram accounts. Some of the artwork just takes my breath away it is so gorgeous.

Jen Bartel’s bright colours and clean lines are just perfect. I particularly loved this Ripley drawing:

Isabel Greenberg’s work is thoughtful and beautiful. Her Encyclopedia of Early Earth was utterly enchanting as was her beautiful second book One Hundred Nights of Hero. I love the humour of her Instagram:



Pascal Blanchet is one of my absolute favourite comics creators. His comic White Rapids is one of the most beautiful pieces of work I have ever read. 100% follow his Instagram for examples of his illustration and comics work:


Howard Hardiman’s Badger and Vole was one of the best comics I picked last week at Thought Bubble Comics Festival. I love the delicacy and detail of his drawings:
