The Fan Brothers

 

Brothers Eric Fan (left) and Terry Fan (right) received their formal art training at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. Their work is a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques, using ink or graphite mixed with digital. The Night Gardener was their widely acclaimed debut picture book.

Terry spends his days (and nights) creating magical paintings, portraits, and prints. Visit him online at  Society6,  Caseable, DenyDesigns, and  Facebook (Terry Fan Illustration). 

Eric has a passion for vintage bikes, clockwork contraptions, and impossible dreams. See more of his work at Society6 ,  Redbubble, Caseable, DenyDesigns, and on Facebook (Eric Fan Illustration).
