Artist AARON LEIGHTON discovers “the fantastical hidden in the familiar”.

AARON LEIGHTON grew up on the Canadian prairies, but now makes his home in TORONTO.  He has created illustrations for a variety of advertising, publishing and corporate clients – including CBC television, Teletoon, the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Time Out NY, Chatelaine and Fortune.  His book, “Spirit City Toronto”, published in 2010 by Koyama Press, is unfortunately now out of print.  But you can probably find a copy in the library.  It “combines my interests in urban landscapes, travel and mythology, the images suggest that the magical and the mundane can indeed coexist in the most unlikely of places, if only we look closely enough.”  Find out more about the artist and his work at – http:http://www.aaronleighton.comghton.com – or http://www.aaronleighton.com/blog
