Poppy Magda / New illustrator / France

As a color, fabric and other materials lover, Mamzelle Poppy has found her own way to express herself through illustration for several years now. After a 3D digital training (specialized in texture adding), which made her graphic tablet her best ally, she's inspired by women's magazines and fashion photographic works, but also by cartoon films. Her work is made up of different elements creating a pop, graphic and colored aesthetics. This universe reflects a very personal vision of femininity and the world surrounding us exactly as she sees it: with a suspicion of naughtiness and whim. Mamzelle Poppy's approach is mostly intuitive ; she approaches her creations with feeling and makes the most of her best tool: creativity.

Benoit Tardif / La Licorne Theater / Montreal

September also means the fall arts season! Here are the illustrations created by Benoit Tardif for the 2014-15 season of La Licorne Theater. Benoit's work has been adapted on different promotional media: printed brochures, advertising displays, the theater's website and social media, video etc. The illustrator was given a lot of freedom for this project. He illustrated “in an absurd humor style", as he describes it, the season’s theme including links to Quebec's identity and references (winter, bonfire etc.) Art director and executive director of La Licorne Theater, Denis Bernard quotes: "Benoit's work and style match exactly our theater's spirit and the atmosphere that we want to communicate through this season's brochure."
