Spotlight on Canadian Kimber's Work/Life

Canadian artist Murray Kimber was interviewed for a feature in UPPERCASE gallery's book "Work/Life", which explores the creative life of notable Canadian illustrators and photographers. Publisher and designer Janine VanGool wanted a peek into the studios and minds of working artists, trying to find the line between work and life among a group of dedicated people who have trouble seeing the difference.

The article also explores Murray's technique and process, taking a job from start to finish and giving a glimpse into what an art director can expect from hiring a professional illustrator. Says Kimber, "My philosophy has always been that art directors always have a variety of projects on the go. I want them to be able to know they don't have to be able to worry about the one I am doing. That creates repeat business."
