Byron Eggenschwiler

These illustrations aren't child's play.

 

This Vancouver-based cartoonist first caught our attention with his work with Taxi and the Vancouver Aquarium on Daddy’s Pregnant Again. Byron Eggenschwiler’s brightly coloured images could be mistaken for art from children’s books, but his material is a tad darker than that. Raccoons sipping out of beer bottles and crows with broken time pieces are just some of the work that stands out.
