Erik Brinkman

Erik Brinkman, who illustrated Baba Brinkman’s The Rap Canterbury Tales, grew up in Vancouver and honed his craft as a graffiti artist and stained glass practitioner. He draws his inspiration from his travelling adventures overseas as well as his tree-planting experiences in British Columbia, Alberta, Costa Rica, Australia and Ecuador, where he also apprenticed with a Quechua shaman for six months in the Amazon.
