Since launching in 2018, the Netflix cartoon series “Hilda” – which tells the story of a fearless blue-haired girl and her many magical friends – has become a cult classic amongst kids and adults alike. Hilda comes from the imaginative mind of Luke Pearson, a British illustrator and cartoonist with a keen eye for creating entire worlds from the stroke of his pen. His work is packed with humor and wonder, and he’s contributed storyboards to Cartoon Network’s award-winning show “Adventure Time.” In a special interview for WePresent, he sat down with a 10-year-old “Hilda” superfan, Elodie Bradfield, to chat about inspiration, creative control and slugs. Luke’s work has been featured in the New Yorker, the New York Times, The Guardian and more.
