Sometimes an artist describes him or herself so aptly that it leaves others with nothing much more to say. In the case of Toronto-based illustrator Karlo Ghokasian, he has this to say about himself: ‘Most people go to university to become fancy doctors and sexy lawyers. You know, real important type careers. I on the other hand spent four years drawing vaginas. So, why have I chosen to be an illustrator? Well, I’m not in it for the money. I do it to impress women’.
