On Friday TYPE books on Queen Street will be hosting a launch for illustrator Julie Morstad’s latest book, The Wayside, published by Drawn & Quarterly, and I’ll be holding a Q&A with her during the event. This is definitely something a little out of my comfort zone, but I do love a good chat!
You may know Julie’s work from her books, the children’s books she’s illustrated, the cover of the Neko Case album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood which she illustrated (she also provided illustrations for the video for “People Got A Lotta Nerve”), various print publications including The Walrus and The Globe & Mail, etc. She’s even designed wallpaper. Her work is seriously amazing.

The photo of curios above is from Foxtail and Fern, and when I saw it, it immediately reminded me of the book.
