"Inner Journeys" april - june 2013

Born in 1976 in Canada. Lives and works in New York.

A self-taught artist, Jeff Ladouceur works primarily with ink, pencil and acrylic to create meticulous cartoons, which takes us beyond the limits of our imagination. His world is poetic and touching, yet his characters struggle with everyday life and surrealistic meetings, with cloud-creatures, tiny elephants, octopi, or an abominable snowman. Combining happiness and melancholy, his work is a surprising, weird encounter between innocence and the darkest irony as in a tragicomedy.
