Illustrator Carl Wiens was the perfect fit for Toronto Life magazine art director Brian Anson Wong's vision of the 'Toronto of Tomorrow'. Using a stylized, diagrammatical approach, Carl Wiens is able to transport us to a future of mile-high skyscrapers, underground dwellings and ecopod pads. Looking inside these fascinating structures we get a glimpse of what life in this bustling city could look like.
Of course, the future is also synonymous with automation. Carl's retro-looking robo-advisor is a clever juxtaposition to Toronto Life's prediction of jobs on the verge of obsolescence.
Carl Wiens offers great illustration for whatever the future might hold.
