One For Canada! - Globe & Mail

Here’s a quick piece I did that came out in Fridays, Globe & Mail’s, ‘Facts and Arguments section.’ It is for a story about a man who trains for months for the Chicago marathon, and forgets his passport at home on his way to the airport. He convinces the customs women to let him fly into Chicago from Canada without a passport. On his way back into the country he stirs up a problem with customs. He resolves the situation by showing his marathon medals and saying “I won this for Canada.“ They strangely enough cheered and said “Welcome home”. This was Art directed by Matthew French.

Reminiscing - The Globe & Mail

I had the pleasure of working with Cinders at the Globe & Mail for a piece in their “Facts and Arguments” section. She assigned a narrative story about a man reminiscing about his childhood in Port Credit, Ontario while with his wife, two year old son and dog. The overall art direction was to show the family walking around their neighborhood into which, it is alluded, they could move back.

These were two sketches I thought would have been cool to follow through with and luckily the first one was chosen. In the second sketch I wanted to focus on a moment in the story where his wife was looking at him with a smile (which is something that is repeated a lot in the story) as he looks at az old home remembering a moment in time.
