ABOUT

Julie Benbassat is an illustrator and recent RISD graduate. You can find her in the South Jersey eating soft tofu stew or reviving her basil plants.

Her work delights in the eccentricities of the natural world, indulges in the fantastical, and highlights the bridge between the cute and the horrific. In spare moments, she relishes reading sassy nonfiction, hiking wooded expanses, and watching bad (but good) horror movies.
