19 Aug ❤ Claire Milbrath ❤
Could you introduce yourself?
I’m a painter and photographer, and also I run Editorial Magazine
What are your favorite things? Friendship, kissing, making stuff.
And what inspires you? Other people.
When did you start drawing? When I was really small.
I didn’t start drawing “Poor Gray” til about 5 years ago though.
How would you describe your illustrations? Naive, childlike, homoerotic.
You are working on a new comic, can you tell us about it? I’m actually working on a Valentine’s Day comic for Vice Magazine. It’s going to follow a gay couple buying eachother gifts. I’m using my new set of feltpens that my sister gave me.
Youre also a cool photographer!! Which are your favorite subjects?
Thanks! I love to shoot nature, but anything with a nice ray of sunlight on it will do.
Which other photographers do you like?
Hmm.. Right now I like Brad McMurray and Michel Sadowski.
I saw on your Tumblr some Mac DeMarco pics, I’m a huge fan! Can you recommend us other bands that are you listening to?
I’ve been listening to Moodhut a lot lately, that’s a Vancouver- based label that makes dance/house mixes. If you’re looking for something more like Mac, I love Eola.
I love your magazine! The Editorial Magazine. When did you start it and why?
Thank you! I started the magazine about 2 years ago. There was a lot of art happening in Montreal. My friends and I
were producing a lot, and there was nowhere really to have it published so I figured I should start a publication for our work.
Which other magazines do you read? I don’t read any.. I hardly read my own.
Do you love fashion? Which fashion designers are your favorites and why?
I usually wear the same thing everyday so I wouldn’t say I love fashion. I do love Gosha Rubchinskiy’s new line, need to own one of those sweatsuits. I like a couple Montreal-based designers; VEJAS and Josh Reim are making excellent things.
What is art for you?
Something that is nice to look at.
What do you love to do in your free time? I like to paint and lay around in bed.
What is your obsession right now? Romance.
