Luke Séguin-Magee draws pictures for children’s books and comics
My work draws on influences spanning from a childhood in Canada: watching 1970’s TV, reading the funny papers, MAD Magazine, Maurice Sendak’s “Where The Wild Things Are,” and getting lost in the busy worlds of Richard Scarry, Sesame Street and Pee-wee Herman; to life in Scandinavia: soaking up Tove Jansson, Adventure Time, Pippi and independent comix.
When I’m not hunched over a paper with a pencil—or my iPad— I like to read, paint, bicycle, chop—design and build stuff with—wood, sip a tipple, strum a ukulele, stream TV and facetime with family and friends in Canada and Denmark. I am also trying to learn how to play a tenor sax.
