Hila Noam

Illustrator and comic book artist

I'm a Tel Aviv born illustrator, comics artist and author, and a lecturer at the Bezalel Art and Design Academy in Jerusalem. I work at my studio in Tel Aviv, specializing in acrylic and hand-made illustrations.

My work has been published on leading publications in Israel (Am Oved, Modan, National Geographic) and worldwide (Strapazine - Switzerland; Seven stories Press, Abrams publishing House - USA), as well as in solo and group exhibitions around the world (Israeli comics museum, Holon, Fumetto comix Festival, Luzern, society of illustrators, NY). A graduate of the Visual Communication department at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, where I majored in illustration. I'm also a member of the Humdrum comics collective, publishing comics anthologies yearly, two of which were nominated for the Angouleme comics Festival Alternative Anthology Award.

My first comic book for children, Vadrouille, was published in French in 2019 by Même Pas Mal Publishers and will be published in Hebrew by Am Oved Publishing House later this year.

Other achievements:
Assistant-colorist in Anne Frank’s Diary - The Graphic Adaptation by Ari Folman and David Polonsky,
and the Eisner award winning graphic novel The Property by Rutu Modan.
