Check out the fabulous illo's by Canadian #triple-threat, Frank Viva. His work has the elegant sophistication of the design masters from the 40' and 50's Yet, it's very contemporary at the same time.
Many many thanks to Maria C. and Miquel for showing me his work* cheers

After graduating as a scholarship student from the Fine Arts department of the Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto, Frank realized he needed to make some money to pay the rent – quickly! So began an unplanned career as a commercial illustrator. He was soon working for publications such as Time, Esquire, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Washington Post. While Frank enjoyed doing editorial illustration (and still does), he didn’t necessarily like how his work was used. And so began a second career as a graphic designer. With more than 350 awards from Communication Arts, Graphis, AIGA, the British D&AD and many other organizations, Frank lectures when asked (and sometimes when not), judges competitions and writes a column in Applied Arts magazine. A past president of The Advertising & Design Club of Canada, he is the Creative Director at Viva & Co. He is also an equal partner with his friend Todd Temporale at Whigby. Frank is passionate about cooking and wine (all kinds), his daily bike ride to work (weather permitting), the ongoing (and maddening) restoration of his modernist house and the latest children’s book he’s working on.
