About the Author

Catherine Ocelot is a Montreal-based cartoonist originally from Quebec City. Beginning her career at the CBC as a designer and art director, she has collaborated on a variety of television, publishing and, occasionally, performance projects. Her work explores communication: our ways of speaking to one another, and the influence people have on each other. She brings to light the wondrous and sad moments that are woven into the fabric of relationships, with a playful melancholic humour. Art Life is her third book and first in English.

Reviews

"[Catherine Ocelot] brings us behind the scenes of the creative practice, giving us a glimpse of the hurtles that present themselves along the way. The chapters build on one another in a sort of coming-of-age story where each scene becomes a challenge for the heroine to overcome, whether it's hoisting herself up a tree, pitching a project to her publisher, or developing a theoretical viewpoint that will get her approach to be taken seriously. But the goal of these tests is perhaps not so much to become a successful artist, but simply to fight the necessary battles and avoid becoming jaded." -- Spirale magazine
