Tin Can Forest

Tin Can Forest

Tin Can Forest is made up of Toronto based animation and illustration duo, Pat Shewchuk and Marek Colek. Their work is heavily influenced by folklore and has a very ethereal quality to it. In 2006 they presented their 5-and-a-half animation, Montrose Avenue, to international festivals including the Ottawa Animation Festival, and The Tokyo International Film Festival. They have also produced three stunning art books, POHADKY, BABA YAGA and the WOLF, and WAX CROSS, the latter two are available to buy from the Tin Can Forest website. Their work is rich in detail and vigour, with beautiful etching-esque brush marks, and muted autumn tones. The best place to see more of their work is on the Tin Can Forest blog.
