Rebecca McConnell is a freelance illustrator and comic artist, and colorist, based in Milwaukee, WI. She has a knack for the whimsical, colorful, and humourous, and has been working in the industry as a freelancer since May 2013. Her vibrant colors punch off the page and grab the reader's attention. She has written and illustrated her own comics in the past, and is currently dabbling in the realm of the Zine. When she's not drawing she's either playing Magic: The Gathering or resisting playing Magic: The Gathering.
