Edmonton Street Performers Festival
Every summer, one of the largest street performance festivals in the world takes place in Edmonton. In 2017, the Edmonton Street Performers Festival coincided with the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation. I wanted to capture both the breadth of Canadian culture, and the fun of the Street Performers Festival, with lively, varied illustrations of all sorts of people from all sorts of places, from Canada and beyond! The tagline, “From Eh to Zed” gives the phrase a politely Canadian spin. The illustration showcases a crowd of people, with hand drawn ink illustrations of many of the actual — and very Canadian — acts that perform at the festival.
