Contributor Limelight: Binx Olsen
Binx Olsen began illustrating for SLUG in October 2017, and we’ve loved their lively, cute style ever since! From anthropomorphized local-beer ingredients parading in our 2018 Beer Issue to their recent SLUG Picnic posters—especially the September 2020 raccoon illustration, a favorite of theirs—Olsen charms with their work. This month, Olsen offers up a colorful, interpretive piece for our feature about Flourish Therapy on pg. 22, to which they felt a timely and meaningful connection. To boot, we’re lucky to have on Team SLUG someone whose art has appeared in three books, murals in two different countries and tattooed on people’s skin!
