The film “I Like Girls” won the prize for Best Short Film at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in 2016 and was nominated for Best Animated Short Film at the 5th Canadian Screen Awards. It was also nominated for the Prix Iris for Best Animated Short film in 2017.


On Loving Women, which was translated into English by Helge Dascher, tackles biography (and autobiography) through a series of vignettes that explore memories — crucial moments in the subject's discovery of their sexual identity. A review noted that this material features a “stripped-down approach” that “allows for a focus on the events.”

Obomsawin's first solo exhibition, The Worlds, took place in 2014 at the Centre de Saint-Hyacinthe in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. The exhibition was described as taking viewers “on a journey through stories that form a narrative path into Obomsawin’s imagination.” Obomsawin also illustrated the iconic Molson Brewery building smoking a cigarette in a 2017 exhibition involving magazine Le Montréaler.


One of Obomsawin's notable films is I Like Girls (2012). This film, which was produced by the National Film Board of Canada and based on J’aime les filles and On Loving Women, follows four women who "reveal the nitty-gritty about their first loves, sharing funny and intimate tales of one-sided infatuation, mutual attraction, erotic moments, and fumbling attempts at sexual expression.” The film was screened at the London Short Film Festival, the L.A. Film Festival,  the New Hampshire Film Festival,  the St. John's International Women's Film Festival, the Yorkton Film Festivalthe Sundance Film Festival,  and other venues. The National Film Board of Canada, in a collaborative initiative with Canadian cartoonists, also adapted another of Obomsawin's graphic novels, Kaspar, which was released as an animated short.


Obomsawin's works has been described as complex contemporary comics that often have emotionally charged subjects depicted in clear and accessible manner. An example is Kaspar (2007), which is based on the story of Kaspar Hauser, a German boy raised without human contact. This story, which had previously inspired a film by Werner Herzog, was noted for its different portrait of Hauser as a kind of forsaken everyman, a metaphor for the romantic artist and outsider with the protagonist's depiction that focused on Hauser's naive befuddlement with the world.
