Ilinca Barbacuta


Ilinca is a writer & artist based out of Vancouver, BC. She specializes in writing speculative fiction and prefers traditional art but is working on constantly improving and branching out of her comfort zones. She has been drawing all her life, with a particular interest in fashion, visual puns, and cute monster girls with freckles. She currently lives in Vancouver and hopes to branch out into slice-of-life sequential illustration and more fashion-inspired zines.

Ilinca is also ½ of the founding pair behind JESSAMINE PRESS, an independent press dedicated to providing opportunities for marginalized writers. With a focus on stories for, by, and about individuals not often represented in mainstream media, their ideal goal is to help diversify stories and storytelling.
