Meet the Artist
“"The Slaughtering Swarm" is a project that explores a variety of arthropods and the unusual survival mechanisms they employ to kill, drawing comparisons between these actions to human behaviours and concepts. This series of illustrations is meant to be a playful, yet morbid look into the world of arthropods while also serving as an informative body of work about these fascinating creatures and their unique abilities.”
Good day!I'm a Toronto-based illustrator and I go by VIATHINE online, all caps optional.I primarily work digitally and my passion is dabbling in non-human character designs that incorporate both cute and macabre elements. My style draws inspiration from both Western and Eastern cartoons, as from a young age, I yearned to be able to create colorful and wacky characters like the ones I watched on TV. Through my designs, I seek to express myself and tell captivating stories that involve robots, demons, and cuddly animals.
