The March 2013 Buzzer illustration and its creator, Kim Ridgewell!

We are happy to have the work of local illustrator Kim Ridgewell on the Buzzer for March 2013!

A graduate from Capilano University’s IDEA program in 2007, Kim now works with ideas agency Rethink Canada. Here’s a bit more about her in our traditional Buzzer illustrator interview!

Tell us about yourself and your art!
I am a busy person… I am a happy Vancouverite, and love all things west coast – yoga, running, snowboarding, hiking, surfing and fair-weather biking. When not in the bush or sea, I am designing, drawing, crafting and Instagramming.

Tell us who or what inspires you as an artist.
I am inspired by people who make the effort to be creative in a meaningful way, despite what medium they might work in. I also really love public art – I believe that art and design should be accessible for all!

Do you take transit? If so, where do you like to sit on the bus (or train)?
I have been taking transit for about 15 years, as my primary source of transportation. As for where I like to sit on the bus, it really depends on what bus I take. I like to sit at the back on the trolleys, and the front on the express buses!

What can we expect from you in the future?
I plan on continuing to illustrate, design and be as creative as possible.

Anything you’d like to add?
I think that transit is a great place to get to contribute to your community – share a smile with people you make eye contact with; offer a seat up to people, even if they don’t look like they need it; help someone with their bags, or stroller… practice kindness!

Thanks so much Kim!
