Jessica Fortner / Interview

Last week I had a little online chat with Toronto-based illustrator Jessica Fortner! Back in July she blew me away with two different submissions to our project with Poketo, so this is long overdue!

An interview with Jessica Fortner

An interview with Toronto based illustrator Jessica Fortner

It’s a rainy day here in Vancouver so it feels nice to be sitting in my apartment with a cup of green tea. I’m listening to Jose Gonzalez and spying on people out my window. Can you describe where you are?

I’m sitting in my studio (a.k.a. my apartment), and as of now am listening to Jose Gonzalez. It’s grey and rainy out, so I’m glued to the computer working on my new project/website Tangled Fingers. Behind me are two drafting tables, one mine the other my boyfriend’s, stacked with drawings, sketches, books, comics, and magazines. The room is tiny, but has a big window looking out on downtown Toronto.

I have fond memories of Toronto, I used to go out there every summer (and many winters) to visit my grandparents. Do you have any inside information about the city? What is something most people don’t know about Toronto?

Toronto has the best comic book store in North America. It’s called The Beguiling. The people who run it host the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) which brings together a ton of talented artists every year.
