Meet the Artist: Remie Geoffroi
You may have noticed that chickaDEE’s Mish Mash page has a brand-new look!
Not only has Mish Mash added a page, it also has more jokes, more riddles and even more illustrations. Who’s behind all those fun drawings, you ask? Remie Geoffroi, that’s who! Check out our interview with Remie below!
chickaDEE: How did you know you wanted to be an artist when you grew up?
Remie: From a very young age, all I wanted to do was draw. I spent hours upon hours drawing, and never got tired of it. I would fold a few pieces of paper together, put three staples across the side (at the fold), and then draw my own comic and activity books for my family to read. Sometimes, just for fun, I would paint my arm and hand to look like an elephant, crocodile or giraffe, then wash it off after taking a few pictures. I was always making crafts and art projects.

chickaDEE: How do you make your art?
Remie: I used to sketch everything on paper, scan it in and then create the finished artwork on the computer. Now I skip the pencil and paper, and draw right in the computer program using a pen tablet. I love the “undo’ feature” much faster than an eraser!
chickaDEE: Can you explain more about Mish Mash’s new look?
Remie: We are finally getting a glimpse of where Mish, Mash and Mush live. This is their house, and they’ve covered the walls with drawings, puzzles and activities on scraps of paper. It’s a zany, unpredictable house, just like the funhouse at a carnival, with trap doors and secrets waiting to be revealed!
chickaDEE: Who’s your favourite character? Mush, Mish or Mash?
Remie: I love them all, but I’ve got a soft spot for Mash. He’s not quite as smart as Mish, and not as mischievous as Mush — just a good natured, simple guy!
chickaDEE: Can you tell us your favourite joke?
Remie: This is one of my all-time favourite jokes: What’s the sweetest animal in the forest? The chocolate moose!
Good one, Remie! Hey chickaDEE readers, do you have a favourite joke? Tell us in the comment section below!
