I have some wonderful news! 

On Sunday December 4th 2011, the Kid Icarus 2012 Handprinted Calendar will be available for sale at their storefront in Kensington Market- I had the pleasure of making the illustration for the month of July. You can pick up an early copy at Handmade Holiday, Saturday December 3rd, St. Stephen-in-the-Fields. The calendar is a limited edition of 125 copies, with only 100 available for sale at $80 each.
 
If you are unfamiliar with the project, the concept is to take 12 artists and produce a calendar with each artist choosing one month to illustrate and only two colours to pull it off. There are no guidelines on layout or how the information is presented, the artist has full control. The entire calendar is screen printed by hand from the cover, right through to the backing.

Calendars will be available for sale at Kid Icarus, and other locations (TBA).

National Post - The Month Ahead

Earlier this month I was happy to contribute to the cover of the Art & Life section of the National Post with a big illustration for their monthly events calendar.

Thunderbird Update

With Gillan Blekkenhorst and Misha Snyder. JJ and Misha have been amazing about building things! Here they're putting up walls to protect the exposure unit, which JJ build from an old arcade game. Coool!Gillian is putting some repairs to that table (off camera, I was sanding down some lovely work tables we build against the other wall).
