Toronto ON

"carolyndraws is the brainchild of Toronto-based illustrator, letterpress printer and people watcher, Carolyn Verkuyl. After a successful advertising career using her scribbles to win pitches and sell people stuff, Carolyn turned her uniquely Canadian sense of humour, illustration style and love of printing into a one of a kind line of paper goods with wide appeal. Every illustration, idea and snicker has fallen out of her brain and all of the hand-drawn fonts on every piece are uniquely hers too. Most of the line is hand-printed on an antique letterpress, one colour and one sheet at a time using only hand-mixed inks and paper she cuts herself."
