Atmospheric, interior scenes of bedrooms and workspaces characterise much of Becky Glendining’s work. Based in Kent, the illustrator – a recent graphic design graduate from Canterbury Christ Church University – works from a homemade set-up, using a laptop and tablet to create vibrant, warmly-lit images. Having worked as a freelancer for just under a year, Becky has already worked for the likes of Penguin and grown a healthy following online. But the uncertainty that comes with the role is still every bit as scary as it was post-graduation. Starting out, Becky affirms, was “terrifying”. Now working towards finishing an MA, she discusses with us the challenge of finding and refining your own style, learning to trust yourself, and a vision of a more diverse and inclusive industry.
