This is my favourite comic; it’s exactly my face when my dad would clean my ears when I was a kid. More drawings by Montreal-based illustrator Pascaline Lefebvre below.
Veronique Meignaud is my favourite illustrator living in Canada (by way of France). She has one of the most diverse portfolios I’ve seen, every page is bursting with ideas. A true master of both digital and traditional mark making. When I first featured her several years ago she was still living in France, now she lives in Montreal.
Take a look at more of her work below!
This is my early pick for video of the year (and possibly the last few years). Director collective CANADA teamed up with The Creators Project for one of the most ambitious music videos in recent memory. The footage was captured live, by two separate film crews, and the shots continuously alternate between the two crews.
A countdown clock is visible in many of the shots, it was used to tell each crew how long they had to film their scene while the other prepared to capture the next. This concept is pure madness, and I love the energy in the final product because of it.
