About the Illustrator
Zachary Emerson Ladouceur is an artist, illustrator and designer living in Upstate NY. Often drawing from the challenges and inspirations of the world around him, Ladouceur crafts works in a variety of styles and mediums. The perceived eclectic features of his body of work is a reflection of the ever-evolving pursuit for identity, purpose and belonging. Outside of his endeavors in the arts, Zachary enjoys long walks on the beach, a good glass of Pinot, and not taking himself too seriously. In most matters, he returns to a quote: “We are small, and our time here is short; only pursue that which makes you happy.”
