Bilquis Evely is a comics artist based in São Paulo, Brazil who is currently the artist on the new Wonder Woman series from DC Comics.
Evely has worked on a number of titles for DC — including Batman, Legends of Tomorrow and the Shadow — as well as titles for for Archie Comics and Dynamite Entertainment. I can’t find much information for work she may have done for Brazilian comic book publishers.
Her fine line and hatching style carries a feeling of the European-influenced Brazilian and Argentinian comics I’ve seen, and is a welcome approach amid the often more heavy-handed styles common in mainstream American comics.
Her work is also grounded on solid draftsmanship and lucid storytelling; the overall feeling is one of crispness and clarity.
Evely doesn’t appear to have a dedicated website, relying instead on her deviantArt gallery, Tumblr blog and social media for her web presence.
I particularly enjoy her Instagram feed, in which she frequently posts work in progress, often with her drawing instruments in the photo to give a feeling of the scale of the original drawing. She also sometimes posts examples of the same drawing in both the pencil and final ink stages.

Incredible! I am all over Wonder Woman right now, these are my fave comic versions of her so far! x
I’ve just started getting into Evely’s art. Just . . . it just blows me away.
