Balancing Bold and Pastel Colours with Christy Lundy

With a refreshing use of colour, Christy Lundy’s illustrations manage to come across strong and attention-grabbing while working with lighter, pastel tones.

This Toronto-based illustrator describes herself as a “dogless dog lover. Inspired by Tintin, a strong cup of coffee and her desire to tell stories”.
