Punks in Canada

Illustration // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Forage Press is a publication that celebrates the union of visual art and music through specialized articles/artworks representing a particular chosen genre or movement of music. This Forage Press article focuses in on the "dauntingly sublime Canadian landscape" and its role in building the Candian punk and metal underground. From large city centres to remote and isolated communities, the Canadian environment seems to have given birth to the pristine and the transgressive, and these illustrations aim to capture the cult favorites and masters of the punk genre, the truly transgressive. Check out these awesome illustrations of punks and demons tramping around the Canadian countryside.

Illustration // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Amelie Barnathan has created a series of artworks for Forage Press dedicated to the musical movement of "Space Disco," a genre of music she calls "a comet in the history of music and one of the coolest and tackiest eighties movements ever." Forage Press is a publication that celebrates the union of visual art and music, featuring an eclectic mix of creative minds who love both of these crucial art forms. Barnathan's exploration of Space Disco depicts the merging of disco music with all that is "futuristic"--robots, cosmic sounds, intergalactic themes. The costumes of these Space Disco bands followed suit, as reflected in these funky, bizarre drawings.
