My name is Jake Tobin Garrett and I'm writer, illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto.

Working primarily in ink with splashes of colour, I aim to capture a sense of place and whimsy, expressing the familiar in unexpected ways. Since 2015, I have drawn hundreds of custom illustrations for people and sell artwork through my online store.

I've also worked with clients such as the LCBO, Chatelaine, Maisonneuve, Deciem, Book City, Environmental Defence, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and more.
