The graphic narrative is able to communicate throughout all ages and cultures in a meaningful way.
The graphic narrative is able to communicate throughout all ages and cultures in a meaningful way. Combining images with text brings the audience into a deeper level of connection with the message. Joni’s work is primarily concerned with connecting her viewers with the plight of the unseen populace. She uses uncommon disfigurations and hyperbolic renderings of the human form in her comic art, illustrations (both 3D + 2D) and mini zines. She uses irony and humour to diffuse the seriousness of her narratives.
Joni is a candidate in the Master of Applied Arts Low Residency program at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She graduated with a BFA from Emily Carr in 2014 and is a Vancouver based artist/illustrator.
