Description

ALL NEW DRAWINGS FROM A NOTED ILLUSTRATOR

Julie Morstad has long excelled at illustration, often working in tandem with children's writers, but inThe Wayside, the storytelling potential of her fantastical pictures is fully realized. Within these pages Morstad's worlds unite, maintaining their ethereal, almost fairy-tale beauty and yet also offering a loose overarching synthesis through thematic and visual commonalities.

The work found herein combines the delicate line of Edward Gorey with the color palette of Marcel Dzama, and emerges as something utterly unique, a combination of the two with the spirit of Virginia Woolf. Dramatic, poetic, heavy with symbolism, Morstad's drawings speak for themselves, exploring femininity, identity, and personal mythologies that interested her in her first Drawn & Quarterly book,Milk Teeth.

Contributor Notes

Julie Morstadis an award-winning illustrator and artist living in Vancouver with her husband and three kids. She received her BFA at the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2004 and is a sessional faculty member at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Editorial Reviews

This new book of her work is perfect. It's . . . a good match for her delicate fine line drawings and etchings.


The sophistication and refinement of her style are undoubtedly what have made her a popular commercial illustrator.


Delicate, imaginative, whimsical and haunting.
