My name is François Vigneault. I am a freelance illustrator, cartoonist, designer, and teacher (not necessarily in that order) living in Montréal, Québec. I am the creator of the sci-fi graphic novel Titan, serialized online and in print at Study Group Comics, and published in French by Éditions Pow Pow (May 2017). Recently, my work was selected by the Society of Illustrators for inclusion in their Cartoon and Comic Art Annual. Some of my previous and ongoing clients have included The Portland Mercury, The California Sunday, Area 1 Security, Scout Books, Reed College, CRAFT magazine, Papercutter, Chronicle Books, Tea Party magazine, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. I am the Art Director for Study Group Comics.
