Hello, I’m Hobart. I’m an Australian illustrator and writer living and working in Tasmania. I like machines, midcentury design and visiting new places. I studied as a journalist, but now work in illustration.

Vekllei has existed in some form since I was a kid, but I started working on it properly in 2017.

You can follow my progress on this project on Twitter, or join my subreddit.

Sincere thanks to Jip and Ben R. R. for their contributions to this site. They volunteered their time again and again to help create new features that make Vekllei easier and more fun to read. Thank you!
