These are a few pages from a large compilation of comics and sketches from the “Therapeutic Progress Journal” Sketchbook Snippets from 2004-2015 by Peter Guindon.
Before perverting the world in the pages of Cinema Sewer, Peter grew up in idyllic suburban Ottawa, acquired a BFA at the University of Windsor followed by an animation certificate at Algonquin. He spent the early to mid 2000s working as a professional animator until the Canadian 2D animation industry was gutted by lack of funding and slave labour overseas, and then resorted to menial labour in order to make ends meet. He wallowed in self-pity for a couple of years until he decided to re-invent his life. In 2010, he packed his belongings and moved to Asia to teach whilst trying to find fresh opportunities to showcase his artwork. He is taking in a new culture learning a new language and meeting new people. Peter Guindon heartily recommends stark lifestyle and geographical shifts for those failing to realize their passion in their current abyss. As for his work, Peter says, “I am inspired by the artwork of Bosch, Breughel, and George Tooker. I am also visually inspired by 1920s fashion, medieval architecture and regalia, as well as modern day smog-filled skies and devastated landscapes. I believe my works offer glimpses of all of these influences to a certain degree.”
