So, this blog is for the Ricepaper magazine website, I know that. But I just want to highlight the recent work of our Ricepaper 15.1 cover artist Andrea Wan, who drew the illustration that you currently see to the top right hand corner of your screen (it’s here too), and was featured in two other magazines – hearty magazine – the “place for emerging culture–fashion, music, art and stuff.” and enRoute, the magazine that’s included in your Air Canada flight.
- hearty magazine features an interview with Andrea on her inspirations (“observing strangers on public transit[…] alleyways, badly designed store signs, posters and found objects in alleyways—anything random with a story attached.”), the connection between her formal training and her style, and her motivation for joining Twitter (@andrea_wan). Andrea also reveals that she’s doing her first group show this month.
- enRoute features an illustration by Andrea for CBC Literary Award-winner for creative non-fiction “Flo” by Stéphane Bigras (French only).
