Torontoist Illustrationist

For the last month or so I’ve been doing some illustration work for The Torontoist website. It’s a municipal news blog. They have divisions in many cities like the  Bostonist, Londonist, Seattlest, Shanghaist and for New York, the Gothamist. It’s been nice to work on some editorial style illustration, like I went to college for so many years ago. I enjoy trying to depict things conceptually on a tight time line. Here are some of the ones I’ve done so far…
