About Me

I’m a Canadian illustrator living and working in Vienna, Austria.

This blog is a wing of my main portfolio site at peterdiamond.ca, providing background stories for certain pieces and a closer look at my creative process in general. I also post my newest commissions and personal projects here.

I grew up playing in bands and drawing posters for punkrock shows in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I studied Fine Arts at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and have been freelancing in illustration since 2003.

    Hi Peter,
    Stumbled apon your amazing work just today and just wanted to say thanks for sharing your creative process in the blog alongside the completed pieces in your folio. It was interesting to see how all those decisions and choices effected the final image. Cheers!

    Hi Peter

    Truly amazing creations. The style and narrative that each work carries draws me to different element with each viewing. Shocked to see you are from Freddy Beach where I am now living!
