His posters, featuring otherworldly creatures, especially bunnies, influenced by the psychedelic art stylings of San Francisco artists such as Rick Griffin and Victor Moscoso, figured strongly in the Montreal literary and spoken word scene of the 1990s.

Since 2004, Mavreas has been a regular cartoonist for ascent magazine, a Canadian yoga magazine, and Matrix magazine, a literary review based in Montreal.
