Luke Ramsey: November Buzzer illustrator interview

The November print Buzzer image and Luke at work

Have you checked out the latest print Buzzer [1]yet? If you have, you’ll notice the fantastic cover image by Luke Ramsey [2]. Here’s a little more about the man behind the image:


Tell us about yourself and your art.

I’ve been living on Pender Island for the past seven years, traveling the globe with my art when I can. I balance my practice between illustration, murals and drawings I exhibit.  My art is generally about organized chaos, or conveying a positive message whether it be ugly or cute.

How did you come up with your illustration?

Making a drawing for Translink is important to me, because public transport brings together different people regardless of race, disabilities, religion, style, gender and age.
I wanted to include all these varieties in the image.

Do you take transit? If so, what’s your favourite mode of public

There’s no public transit where we live, but when I do leave the island I use public transport often. I do enjoy catching Translink’s Canada Line, that’s why I included it in my drawing.

What can we expect from you in the future?

I hope to do more public art projects in the future and publish a sci-fi book.

We were very happy that Luke fit us into his busy schedule. And we’re super glad that he provided us with this very cute (not ugly) cover for the Buzzer!
