I spend and inordinate amount of time on Social Media sourcing and researching illustrators. The following are some of the illustrators I have enjoyed sharing over the last couple of weeks.
Jean Paul Langlois pop and pulp culture – Bailey Street Designs in
A selection of work by Métis artist Jean Paul Langlois from Vancouver Island, currently based in East Vancouver. Informed by pop and pulp culture, particularly Westerns, 70s sci-fi and Saturday morning cartoons, Langlois plays with ultra-saturated colours and motifs as a way of grappling with a sense of alienation from his own cultural backgrounds – both indigenous and settler.
