Illustration: Chanel Dehond. Chanel received her Master of Architecture at the University of Waterloo.  Her thesis entitled, “A series” was comprised of five illustrated short fictions that constructed metaphysical space – the way an author might construct a single room or entire world in one’s mind.  Chanel is a Toronto-based designer, who practices as a writer and illustrator within the field.
