“Hillman’s portrait [Magic] initiates a dialogue about homophobia, masculinity, fear, sickness, and AIDS through the fusion of a hyper-masculine heroic persona with the femininity and tactile softness of crochet craft. Hillman’s work exemplifies one of the ways that craft can become a material device to confront, interrogate, dissect, magnify, and/or name stigmas such as AIDS while reflecting empowerment.”

-L.J. Roberts, "Making Mirrors: Craft Tactics in the Age of Ongoing AIDS," Craftivism: The Art of Craft and Activism, Ed. Betsy Greer
