In celebration of the comic book creators who were planning to exhibit at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival 2020, here’s my chat with Joni Taylor. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
Joni is an artist / illustrator / writer, whose work is deeply informed by the eclectic influences of MAD Magazine (from the 70s, now known as Classic Mad), SNL, the chaotic satirical work of Ralph Steadman, and the dynamic duo of Roald Dahl — whose characters and plots are always a little on the naughty side, and Quentin Blake — whose illustrations are decidedly quirky. Passionate about the plight of the underdog, Joni’s subjects are those who are unknown and unseen yet have incredible amounts to offer. From feminism to ageism and global warming, Joni feels strongly about setting the record straight. Her work is imbued with her own hyperbolic sense of what’s funny and what’s possible to get away with.
