Chelsea O'Byrne, Illustrator (Vancouver CA)
Chelsea is an illustrator from Vancouver BC. She works mainly in traditional media such as ink and graphite, and her style is largely inspired by midcentury children's illustration. Other inspirations (currently) include dance, fashion design, textiles, household tasks and chores, and nature. Much of Chelsea's subject matter focuses on feminist issues applied to children and adolescents, and how our culture's definitions of gender can shape the lives of very young people. She also has a textile practice and has done some soft sculpture work with similar themes. Check out her website for more work, or you can also find her on instagram or tumblr.
