Hi. I'm Alexander Laird, I comic-make, video-make, and illustrate. Using a variety of mediums and forms from plasticine to vhs pixel art to risograph printing, I work to create absurd, weird and psychedelic stories.
Currently living in New York, NY. From Toronto, ON originally.
I graduated from York University, in Toronto, ON in May of 2016, with a major in film production, and a minor in history.
I have had my illustration, comic, and video work featured on sites such as the New Yorker, Vice, Pitchfork, Bandcamp (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4), Stereogum, The FADER, okayplayer, FORGE Art Magazine, NoBudge, SLUG, and have made numerous album covers and gig posters.
I am the current summer Artist-in-Residence at the RisoLAB, part of the MFA Visual Narrative program at SVA in New York, NY.
