Michael Wandelmaier - Illustrator
Michael Wandelmaier grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, in a family of science geeks with artistic temperaments. His years at Queen's University in Kingston were spent diligently neglecting his courses in civil engineering and geology in favor of leisure and drawing cartoons for the school paper.
After graduation, he moved to Toronto to pursue a career in graphic design and illustration. He is currently a designer at a Toronto advertising agency and an illustrator whenever possible.
In the two years since Michael began illustrating professionally, his illustrations have appeared in publications such as the New Yorker, Maisonneuve magazine, Fantagraphics' Beasts! Book 2, and Planadviser magazine.
Michael currently lives in Toronto with his girlfriend, artist Jessica Fortner, from whom he derives constant inspiration.
