A good part of the appeal of Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town is its nostalgia for a Canada and an Ontario that was already disappearing at the time of its publication, for small towns that electricity and the worries of the world didn’t quite reach.
—Nick Mount reviewing Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, as illustrated by Seth
"Make-Do and Mend"
The Imperial War Museums’ website has a really great collection of “Make Do and Mend” artwork, which was produced in Britain sometime in the early 1940s to help support the country’s rationing programs.
Ignore the gender-based stereotypes and realize how few us actually know how to do those “useful” jobs anymore.
An absolutely perfect illustration for Gawker’s “Answering a Question No One Asked: 13 Years of Williamsburg in the NYT”
Destination X is my new book from Nobrow Press. I can’t wait to get my hands on a physical copy. It’s printed, and all set for its debut at [the Toronto Comics Arts Festival]. It’ll be in stores in June, and is available direct from Nobrow now.
(Added the links so you, too, can get a copy)
Vicki Nerino is my one of my favorite illustrators / artists. She will make you feel horrible about your body and all of its easily mocked dangly bits, and you will love her for doing it with so much humor and absurdity. If you’re in Toronto, you should go and see her at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival in May. If I were there, I certainly would!
VICKI NERINO is coming to TCAF!
“Vicki Nerino has a degree in Illustration (yes, that is actually a thing). By day, she is an office monkey drawing cute bubbly prints for kids and communicating with dudes and ladies on the other side of the globe for a kids clothing company…” - Full Bio at TCAF site
