Cover of the Georgia Straight Out Now!

New client! Super happy to get to do the cover of The Georgia Straight, a Vancouver newspaper established in 1967. My first love is editorial illustration so whenever I get the chance to work for a great paper like this it's a real feather in my cap. Some proud moments I've had recently have been doing a series of illos for the Village Voice and doing a cover for the National Post's Weekend Post section.

The story is about the hidden dangers of farmed shrimp. Unbeknownst to most folks, farmed shrimp is absolutely chock-full of antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides. There are regulations but those are often lax in the countries that farm shrimp and there isn't a lot of inspection going on when it makes it over to us.

The art director wanted something bold and bright and I was more than happy to oblige! A major bonus for me was getting to illustrate food -- one of my favourite subjects :).
