Rebecca Stewart

I am a Melbourne-based illustrator working in dip pen and ink, pencil and charcoal. In the ’90s I worked in 2D animation on short films, ads and TV shows including Li’l Elvis Jones and the Truckstoppers. In 1998 I graduated from VCA with a Post Graduate Diploma of Film & TV (Animation), then taught character animation at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore. My main focus is on line: using different line styles and speeds to tell a story. Artist inspirations include Ronald Searle and Ralph Steadman, as well as Jillian Tamaki, Molly Crabapple, Shaun Tan, Yuko Shimizu, and Anand Radhakrishnan, to name a few. Currently I work on editorial illustration, book and EP covers. I designed Ask for the Moon (2018), a history of Hong Kong moviemaking legends Shaw Brothers, and was a finalist in the Lyn McCrae Drawing Prize at the Noosa Regional Gallery in 2019.
