Created for the French language daily La Presse (Montreal, Quebec), this illustration accompanied an article in last Sunday’s edition about letting kids do their own thing during Spring break. Too often children are pushed intoÂ tightly scheduled activities leaving no room to relax or to play or just to sleep in. The kids are symbolised by characters inspired by modern plush toys. I also love fishing allÂ year roundÂ and couldn’t resist includingÂ fish in the art. Can you see them? The headline goes into the top left corner and the article runs down in one column on the left side.
