    Scott Martin is a Canadian artist and designer better known as Burnt Toast Creative. Some of his clients include Fast Company, Red Bull and Dropbox.

    While at first glance Martin’s clean-cut, candy coloured creations may look cute, a second glance reveals that they are more mature and layered. His soft tones and “roundness” cleverly mask darker themes, such as dismembered body parts, making them seem comical.

    Chris W. Kim is an illustrator and cartoonist who lives in Toronto, Canada. His portfolio mainly consists of editorial pieces, but also features a few short comics rather reminiscent of the Theatre of the Absurd.

    The combination of Kim’s thin crisp outline with spirited cross-hatching truly brings some unusual imagery to life. His use of disproportionate facial features and exaggerated body language help the character’s woes leap off the page. Kim’s work is not confined to just the conceptual and somber. His style and technique also brings a lot of liveliness to more humorous pieces as well.

    Be sure to see more of Chris W. Kim’s work on his website, Tumblr and Instagram.
