Hi I’m Drew! I’m an illustrator, cat dad, and movie lover in Toronto Canada.

I’ve been working for just over a decade now, and in additon to being a regular contributor to the Globe and Mail, I’ve had the pleasure to appear in newspapers, magazines, children’s books, product branding and more.

I really enjoy drawing people, and helping tell stories about them. I like organic shapes and vibrant colours. I think the favourite part of my job is the collaborative element and getting to work with all kinds of creative folks. If that sounds like you, please reach out!

I am living and working on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and Toronto is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
