About

Hello, Bonjour, Dziendobry!
I’m Joanna Czadowska, an illustrator, multimedia director and animator, living in Montreal. I’ve constantly nourished my passion for drawing, films and books, through my childhood as well as after immigrating from Poland to Quebec. It brought me to study french literature at Université de Montreal and film animation at the Mel Hoppenheim school of cinema. Being interested in relating image, storytelling, sound and technology, for new environments and experiences – I started to work for multimedia/visual content agencies, who allowed me to explore that. Since 2007, I’ve been creating animation, design & illustration for stage, mapping shows and immersive environments, such as Cirque du Soleil’s One Night for one drop, and Moment Factory’s Ôde à la Vie. I presently direct multimedia projects at Normal Studio.
As an illustrator, I’m devoted to monochrome, inked portraits, expressing energy and movement, valuing their lines of action and identity. They’re everyday humans, sometimes film or book characters, who release their story through gesture and gripping gaze. Their dynamic, caricatural bodies, are vehicles of time and duality, critical moments, mystery and style.
