Jeannie Phan is an illustrator based in Toronto, Canada. Her work is full of diverse characters, contrasting textures, and places both real and imagined. Woke is a portrayal of a world at that strange and often uncomfortable state of just waking up after being in the dark far too long. Commissioned as part of Frontier Magazine Issue 03 / Darkness, Jeannie's map gazes back at the viewer, partly to confront but also to start a dialogue and shed light on places often left out of the conversation and kept in darkness.

The Frontier Map Program is an ongoing look at the world through the eyes of different designers, artists, and illustrators. It's a celebration of the fact that the world is in a constant state of flux and subject to infinite interpretations.
