The cover of the latest issue of ReNew Canada: The Infrastructure Magazine features an illustration that I made.
The assignment was to come up with a vision of a near-future sustainable city. In the words of editor Andre Voshart : “I am looking for a cover illustration around the topic of urban density and growth–and fighting back against the idea of urban sprawl and car-based societies. It looks at the way city planners are going to make cities like Toronto and Vancouver grow in smart ways: more walkability, more mid-rise construction, more mix-use neighborhoods, more urban food/farming, etc.”
It was a really fun picture to make as it allowed me to explore eutopian ideas about the future of cities. This process aligned nicely with the ideas that I have for a sci-fi comic that has been simmering in my imagination for a few years. Here is the finished illustration minus the typography.
