Some Canadian Animals

I’m working on a street installation project with Flying Pony’s Andrew Horne. The finished design will be over 15 feet high and feature cut-out cartoon heads by Horne and myself. We’re unveiling the project, Bazaar Bizarre, at the Festival of South Asia along Gerrard Street in Toronto on August 23 and 24.

I drew nearly two dozen heads for us to choose from, including this suite of Canadian mammals that didn’t make the cut (we went with mostly imaginary beasts).

Anyone want to commission me to paint their children’s room or design their tattoos? I think this artwork has (ahem) legs.
