    About
    I’m a Montréal-based illustrator, artist, and best-selling author very into editorial and commercial work, and while the portfolio part of this website may include only a trim two dozen projects, I’ve been part of more than 1000 assignments on five continents since 2002. That might sound impressive (and make commissioning me to make new work sound expensive), but I work on a sliding scale and respond to every inquiry. Other interests: minimalism, maximalism, world and local history, equality, diversity, economics, music, science fiction, historic buildings, pictorial maps, Canadiana, wall art, preserving a 145-year-old home, etc. I’m also a proud member of Illustration Québec, which is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring together and support illustrators.

    You can think of much of my work as a collage that doesn’t look like a collage—pieces made from real-world lines, shapes, and textures scanned into a computer that’s used as an infinitely-forgiving Xerox machine, glue, and scissors. These “collaged” components lose their recognizability in the process, but through repetitive use bring flaws, eccentricities, and geometries that form a unique visual vocabulary.
