A colorful celebration of cartoons, creativity and the culture of cute.
Confetti, like its namesake, is a fun and explosive mix of color from the fertile mind of multidisciplinary artist Ginette Lapalme. In comics, paintings, prints, sculpture, and jewelry, Lapalme uses cartoons and junk culture as raw material to make “cute” subversive and “pretty” punk.
GINETTE LAPALME is a Toronto-based illustrator and artist. Lapalme is a graduate of the storied OCADU Illustration program, and is one third of Wowee Zonk, a Toronto-based illustrator collective and contemporary comic book anthology.
PRAISE FOR CONFETTI
“It is a goal of mine to live alone in a big house surrounded by the work of Ginette Lapalme, kind of like a cat lady, but with drawings of cats instead of real cats … Utterly delightful but never too cute, the world Lapalme has created leaves me more attuned to the perverse beauty of the one around us.” — Tavi Gevinson, founder and editor of Rookie

It would be of great help to me if all those who like this image could click the link and vote for it on Threadless. *_* If you want to see it print press $5, if you want to shit on me press 0.
If by some miracle this design ends up printed, anyone who tumbl’s this before scoring gets tallied better expect some free t-shirt giveaways. Just sayin’
