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.
Freelance Art Director Samantha Edwards asked John Webster to illustrate a feature for Canadian Living called The Thrifty Life. John's retro collage approach evokes a time when life seemed much simpler and free of excess.

Sarah Beetson was illustrated a double page spread for UK Magazine Nuts', interview with the provocative Russell Brand. Below is her sketch with type and the final art. We think her 'out there' approach to the illustration is a perfect send-up for Mr. Brand! For a peek at the process below is Sarah's art at the rough stage.
Here is the final art.
