Peter Thomson and James Kirkpatrick have been working together on drawings since 2000. Peter has a history of doodling and zine making and James with a background in graffiti. Their artwork has a non-linear narrative that incorporates a pseudo comic-book aesthetic and multiple references to popular culture.

Anteism is a Canadian arts publisher showcasing visual artists through publications such as artist books, zines, exhibitions, collaborative projects, and limited edition art prints. The Anteism logo is a blank canvas, an unspoken speech bubble, a transparent medium for artists to communicate in the way they personally communicate — their art. The goal of Anteism is to offer support to Canadian artists and a platform to share their work.

Anteism’s roots were developed while curating collaborative art projects and exhibitions. Since 2003 the focus has slowly grown towards arts publishing. Art publications and limited edition prints are now the main focus of the organisation. Anteism publishes books in the format of artist monograph, handmade artist books / zines, graphic novels, comics, and illustrated fiction.
