Quebec-based artist Sébastien Thibault has cultivated an impressive portfolio which includes commissions from established publications such as The Atlantic and The New York Times.

A central theme throughout Thibault's work is his storytelling. He has an uncanny ability to reduce complex narratives into their most essential visual forms, which makes for some pretty powerful art.

For a story in The Atlantic titled 'There Is No Alternative Medicine,' Thibault created an adept illustration of a tug-of-war between opposing medical professionals using an electrocardiogram instead of a rope. Another example was in a story for The New York Times, titled Life Under Russia’s Gay Propaganda Ban.' Thibault illustrated an image of someone holding a lighter underneath the LGBTQ rainbow, the colors melting together in colorful stew of symbolism.
