Peter Ferguson (Canada) was born in Montreal in 1968. After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto in 1992, he began his career as a professional illustrator. Currently with Three in a Box Inc., his clients include Marvel Comics, the Royal Shakespeare Company and newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times. Ferguson is also a highly sought-after fine artist whose vividly imaginative works read like a lucid dream of an alternate history, recalling the aesthetic of Dutch Renaissance painting, old National Geographic photography and 18th-century British naval history. Combining grandiose, darkly humorous narratives of the great ages of exploration with a distinctly paranormal bent, Ferguson’s work subtly straddles the lines between fantasy, surrealism, and realism.
