Formerly an aspiring lawyer, Tegan Phillips had her life completely changed in 2014 when she won an 'adventure bicycle' by drawing comics, which allowed her to take home a competition prize.

Since then, following unforgettable journeys and mistake-learned lessons, Phillips now describes herself as a full-time cartoonist, speaker, and endurance cyclist.
