Meghan and her illustration!

This September issue was all about fall service changes and we were lucky enough to have Meghan Latta illustrate the cover!

Capturing our seasonal shift into autumn, Meghan’s work perfectly depicted our move into fall and the service changes that this time of year brings.

Here’s a brief interview we did with Meghan to learn more about her and her work.

Tell me a bit about yourself

My name is Meghan, illustration is not my day job, but I try to work it in whenever I have spare time.

How would you describe your illustration style?

I usually do things that are pretty detailed and realistic. I have been working on more pattern-focused illustration in the last year.

What inspired your illustration?

I knew that the emphasis of this issue of the Buzzer was going to be about fall service changes, some of which included night bus service, so I wanted to do something about the night and the transition from day into night. I really wanted to include some raccoons, but they didn’t make it into the final design.

Have you ever drawn transit before this gig?

I have not.

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

I take transit every day! I live in a really well connected part of town, so it is easy to get anywhere from my house, and that is great. I don’t take the Canada Line as much anymore because it is not on my everyday route, but I do really like that train.

Did you have a good summer? Any fun fall plans?

Summer ended kind of abruptly and I am thinking a lot about fall and fall clothes. I’m wondering if I can get away with wearing a blanket around outside all of the time. Also, pie? Pie is in my fall plans. Both the making of and the eating.

Thanks Meghan! If you haven’t picked up the latest Buzzer you download it or find it on the system!
