'You forget you're looking at finished work': How the internet is a blessing and a curse for artists
Vancouver visual artist Aaron Read on how it's easy to lose perspective about the struggle that goes into art
Aaron Read is a comedian and visual artist working out of Vancouver, B.C. He uses markers and pens to create surreal, often cartoon-like comics and drawings. Read uses his sense of humour and a blank six panel on printer paper to pick apart and poke fun at life in a wry, absurd way. He also performs weekly as an improv comedian in the improv group The Sunday Service and performs with the band How to Dress Well.
You forget that you're looking at a finished work. You never get to see a process or a frustrated failed piece.- Aaron Read
