Hilary Sycamore


About HilaryAbout.html

And it's all intelligently, beautifully coloured by Sycamore - subdued here, Pop Art bright there - it's unashamed comic book colouring rather than overly modeled attempts at naturalism.

—Martin Gray, 
Too Dangerous for A Girl!


Hilary Sycamore's colors are just beautiful. She keeps things simple and light, preserving an uncluttered look. Her work is an essential part of the whole that perfectly presents a visualization of Vance's imagery and his underlying intent.

—Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column, bookotron.com

Sycamore's rich palette of browns, yellows, and purples is critical to the book's emotional resonance, and O'Connor praises her talent and her patience... “I explained what I hoped she could accomplish with the color, and she would come back with something even better than I had envisioned."

Kate Culkin, Publisher's Weekly

Oh, and kudos also are due Hilary Sycamore for the marvelously inventive color palette, all the more surprising given the largely rock-and-desert setting—then again, that’s just one more instance of how Prince of Persia defies expectations.

—Graphic Novel Reporter

Hilary, your colors on the final are killer. This is next level comics. We did something amazing with this.

—Paul Pope
