Becky Dreistadt’s illustrations and comics will make you smile, especially if you grew up consuming classic Little Golden Books. Colorful and intelligent, Becky’s work offers a dose of nostalgia in modern packaging.
Becky is a graduate of Savannah College of Art & Design in Sequential Art (which translates into comic book art). Raised in Virginia, she has since re-located to Auckland in 2008.
The artist has worked full-time on the painted online comic Tiny Kitten Teeth with partner Frank and recently completed a pseudo-children’s book in the style of 50s and 60s vintage picture-books titled Tigerbuttah.
She grew up consuming comics and as she grew older, became interested in Japanese manga. More recently Becky offers “Pokemon is probably my biggest influence.” Take a look at her fantastic retro illustrations and comics.
