Illustrator: Ken Dewar

Ken Dewar graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1984, and set up shop in Calgary soon after. He has worked as a professional Illustrator for the past 21 years, with numerous advertising and editorial accounts both locally and internationally. Ken’s art is drawn from a deep and honest curiosity about people in general. As he explains in his own words: “Whether it is the whimsical fantasy world of the romantic Victorian era or more serious themes, it is all based on my belief that we are all here to experience humanity. To try and show humanity at its best is my passion; also, to try and be versatile in whatever art you choose has always been my philosophy.”
