From Comics Beat:

A colorful celebration of cartoons, creativity and the culture of cute.
Confetti, like its namesake, is a fun and explosive mix of color from the fertile mind of multidisciplinary artist Ginette Lapalme. In comics, paintings, prints, sculpture, and jewelry, Lapalme uses cartoons and junk culture as raw material to make “cute” subversive and “pretty” punk.
GINETTE LAPALME is a Toronto-based illustrator and artist. Lapalme is a graduate of the storied OCADU Illustration program, and is one third of Wowee Zonk, a Toronto-based illustrator collective and contemporary comic book anthology.
PRAISE FOR CONFETTI
“It is a goal of mine to live alone in a big house surrounded by the work of Ginette Lapalme, kind of like a cat lady, but with drawings of cats instead of real cats … Utterly delightful but never too cute, the world Lapalme has created leaves me more attuned to the perverse beauty of the one around us.” — Tavi Gevinson, founder and editor of Rookie

i just finished the designs for my vinyl-mural project and i am so excited about them but they haven’t been approved yet, so i don’t want to post them in full online yet, and patrick is on tour so i can’t even force him to look at them!!! so i am staring at my own work and feeling happy : o )
I’m working on a mural project that will be installed in a stairwell @ Artscape Youngplace (on Shaw St.) in the next few weeks and I am so excited about this!!! This is my first time working with vinyl and it’s pretty sweet because I am basically designing / will be cutting and peeling and rubbing GIANT STICKERS onto walls in a really big stairwell.
