About the Author


❖ For common questions about me or my work, please visit the FAQ.

Hi, I’m Hobart. I’m an Australian illustrator and writer living and working in Tasmania. I like machines, midcentury architecture and Tasmania. I studied as a journalist, but now work in illustration full-time.

I’m currently trying to learn how to cook. I walk most afternoons around my home town, which inspires a lot of how Vekllei looks and feels. Vekllei has existed in some form since I was a kid, but I started working on it properly in 2017.
