I have an illustration in Wayward Arts Magazine: Obsessions Issue #2. Conceived and designed by Vancouver-based design studio Signals. Each issue is put together by a different Canadian design studio who works to produce the magazine of their dreams. This issue is about online confessions. The story I illustrated was about a snake in love with his lady owner: The Snake Charmer.
