Julia Sonmi Heglund v. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
- Who are you and what do you do?
Hi! I’m Julia. I like spaghetti, dogs, and drawing. I work full-time as a graphic designer and cartographer by day, and freelance odd illustrations by night.
- Why did you pick the story you chose?
I read this book many times in late elementary and middle school. The story has an engulfing balance of whimsy and drama, and underlying social analogies that I later came to appreciate. Besides that, I’ve owned pet rats for years, so of course I love any story that involves them! There are many visually descriptive scenes in the book that I think will translate well to a single illustration.
Julia is a talented illustrator and designer; heck, you might even own one of her many shirts from Threadless! Check out her portfolio to see more, but also don’t forget to see her first illustration on February 11th!
