Developer Q&A - Abigail Larson

Art & Illustration

Tell us a bit about yourself!
I'm an illustrator of all things macabre and strange - I love old horror b-movies, old books, and cryptozoology.

What is your most unusual talent?
All of my talents are fairly normal - I draw, sing, and write!

Monster movies, craft beer, Asian food, Tom Waits.

How old are you?

Where are you from?
Richmond, Virginia.

What are some of your credentials?
I have a bachelor's degree in Communication Arts from VCU, with a concentration in drawing and illustration. I've worked for many companies and publishing houses creating artwork for everything from advertisements to fully illustrated books.

When did you start working on art?
I've always considered myself an artist - I never wanted to do anything else. I've been working professionally for about five years.

What has been your most memorable experience being an artist?
Having my first book published was really wonderful, as was my first solo gallery show - but each new project I get to work on is a new challenge that I enjoy more than the last.

What would be your dream career?
I'm doing it! But I guess being a rockstar would be kinda cool too.

Who/what are you biggest artistic influences?
I started out studying Arthur Rackham and John Bauer, but I'm also heavily influenced by Maurice Sendak, Harry Clark, Don Bluth, Hayao Miyazaki, Aubrey Beardsley, and Kay Nielsen (to name a few).

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
A bat! They can fly, and they're super cute.

Why are you a part of North to Hollow Grove?
You guys found me! But I'm a part of the team because I love the aesthetic, and I hope I can contribute something unique to the game.

Check back next Tuesday for another Q&A!
