Remy Simard for Canadian Underwriter

Life is full of mishaps and new adventures. Illustrator Remy Simard puts a comedic spin on these stories for a recent issue of Canadian Underwriter. Art directed by Gerald Heyden, Remy creates some priceless scenarios (and the expressions we imagine go along with them) that capture all that life could throw at you. Hopefully you bought the insurance!

Carl Wiens illustrates for Toronto Life

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.

John Webster: The Thrifty Life

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.  Author Patricia Dawn Robertson writes about her experience leaving a life of debt and over-spending and entering into one of thrift and frugality, which she says, "...can get a bad rap sometimes, but living these values can actually make your life more satisfying, happier even."

 

 

Sarah Beetson: Interview with Russell Brand

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.

Tracy Walker for Taproot

Tracy created this powerful illustration about how a father and daughter connect through bedtime storytelling in the July issue of Taproot Magazine. Without getting literal in her conceptual way of weaving together elements, Tracy tells a story that we think is worth 1000 words! Art directed by the lovely Amanda Blake Soule, editor of Taproot Magazine.
