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.

Pride 2024 - THANK YOU

Wowwwww what a great & exhausting & beautiful month. I was able to raise $2,000 to Rainbow Railroad from my store sales in June so THANK YOU everyone who bought something, shared, liked, and commented.

Thx also Ashley at Toronto Queer Market and Binta at Toronto Artisan Market for putting on great events, including an Eaton Centre queer pop-up. And to Joey at Google, Taylor & Dave at TikTok and the Interac team for hosting me at your buildings.

You can still find most of my queer prints on my shop, but some are now in hibernation until next Pride <3
