Florida-born, Vancouver-based illustrator Hiller Goodspeed is known for his quirky, bare-bones drawings of round-faced characters drawn with colored pencils. Often, they’re captioned with simple, humorous phrases—“Good but not the best,” say, or “My mom bought me this shirt and I like it.” As part of WePresent’s 2020 Ideas Report—which found that creatives were changing their priorities and reevaluating what really matters—Hiller shared how having increased time and space to think and reflect had positively influenced his creative practice.

“Thinking and reflection is such an important part of being creative.”
