This year’s Canzine TO was housed in the more spacious AGO, but just as full and rowdy as last year’s event.
Ilustrators, designers and just visual creatives in general often have beautiful business cards, and so at the end of our little shopping trip we rounded up the business cards we’d collected and went through and picked some of our favourite artists from the day.
Here are our top 10 picks for Canzine 2015 🙂
May Fan a.k.a Mayday Doodlez
After a lot of squealing and then serious debate, postcards were definitely purchased at this booth (by more than one of us). If you think this business card is lovely, you’ll love everything else this artist is offering! Check out more of her work at eecks.tumblr.com.
Louisa Tsui a.k.a Louscribbles
Louscribbles often works in stunning details and beautiful colour. She does beautiful illustrations, but also lovely comics and zines (Jasmine purchased Portals at last year’s Canzine!). See her work or contact her at louscribbles.com.
Cynthia Liu a.k.a Koyamori
So much watercolour and ink! Koyamori’s landscapes are full of whimsy and fantasy, evoking beautiful dreamscapes that are both adorable, and profound. You can find more of her work for viewing and purchase at koyamori.net.
Daisy W. a.k.a 6-hours (tumblr)
With thinner lines, a lot of attention to detail, and mixed media styles, Jen Ip carves a niche for herself in the illustration scene with beautiful prints and zines. You can check out her other work, and contact her for commissions or projects at jen-ip.com.
Hye In Lee
From prints, to greeting cards, pins and even mugs, Hye In Lee creates lovable and fiesty monsters that populate her artwork. She also has a few short comics out. Find her work, store and other social media at hyeinlee.com.
