401 Richmond

Somehow in the last couple years I've made enough fine art work to have something of a retrospective art show! Which is pretty neat, especially since it's going to be hanging from October until at least mid November at none other than 401 Richmond - an amazing creative hub in the middle of the Fashion and Advertising neighborhoods in Toronto! Needless to say, I'm very happy my pieces will be hanging there.

Check out The Roastery Cafe, where my pieces are, and then check out the rest of the beautiful, artistic building, including SWIPE books, and the rooftop garden!

Big thanks to Erin MacKeen for making it happen.

Holy Moly! I have been SO BUSY! Here's a glance at the background to a recent piece I was working on about the UK riots. Maybe a bit to calm, but it felt amazing to sink my teeth into some architectural drawing.

In other news, there are only 8 DAYS left in our silk screen studio fundraiser!

The end of September is going to be very busy and exciting. CANZINE is coming up soo, and I'll have the final printed version of DANGEROUS COOKING for sale there. I also am going to be launching a WEBCOMIC! It will be called 'meat and bone', and I want to have it onling sometime in October.
I'll start leaking concept art soon! Stay tuned.

Zine Dream

New zines, prints, and my lucky skull

I'm a little late in my post! These photo's are from ZINE DREAM, where I was tabling Sunday the 21st of August, with my good friend and amazing zine-maker Gillian Blekkenhorst

A zine fair attendee checks out the brand-new "Dangerous Cooking".
I was selling a few new zines (I had my 'Artichoke' comic, which I've been selling since December, as well as a VERY successful reprint of 'Day of the Gib Cats', and the brand new 'Dangerous Cooking'), and was selling bike prints and postcards.
Participating in creative events always gives me huge motivation and inspiration. I have so much more to make! It's great seeing what other creators are doing, and knowing what will be possible once Thunderbird Studio is ready ($130 to go!).

Gillian and I tabled next to the super-talented Eunice Luk. We were trying to make #zining trend on twitter in Toronto!
