OCAD U Illustration Podcast - Jody Hewgill

OCADU Illustration instructors Lauchie Reid and Christina Sealey
Wednesday, May 25, 2016 - 4:15pm

The OCADU Illustration Podcast is a joint initiative of OCADU Illustration instructors Lauchie Reid and Christina Sealey. Through studio visits and free-form conversations with faculty members and alumni of the university’s program, the podcast aims to illuminate and familiarize our listeners with the ins and outs of the illustration industry, the realities and challenges of studio and professional practices, and a more casual insight into best practices and the personalities of some of Canada’s best illustrators.

For the final episode of our inaugural season! We went and did talking with Jody Hewgill, a hugely talented and prolific illustrator and one of our Thesis instructors at OCADU. Jody works in a home studio in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood and let me tell you: it feels like a cool treehouse. Also she provided really good snacks and was a real pleasure to talk with.https://ouipblog.wordpress.com/2016/05/17/episode-4season-finale/
