Prepping for my show at Collage Collage

Here’s Pancake mentally preparing himself for my show tomorrow. He’s so good at that :)

My dog is helping me prep my show... sort of.. ok, he's not helping at all.

Also, I’d like to give a major shout out to miss Leah Benetti, who took most of the photographs for this project for me. Thanks for being a good sport buddy, and hey, it was a pretty lovely day when we did this, so that was an extra bonus.

While I’m thanking people, here’s another thanks. This one goes to Ian Johnston who was a patient pancake head for one of these photos. Hanging out with me can be soooooo fun sometimes: ‘Hey Ian, … want to go ride around the seawall?… OH… BUT … you have to wear this dog mask though, that’s cool right?’

The Ya Ya Neat Show

The YaYa Neat Show Podcast is ... NEAT

The YaYa Neat Show Podcast is ... NEAT

Ian Johnston from TGBA has gone solo for his new unauthorized podcast project the YaYa Neat Show. I always like listening to new music and I don’t ever have enough time to properly research enough about bands I like and seeking out new music etc in general,.. so a show like this is just what I need. Highly recommended. Yup. Neat.

Also, this here image featured is a collaboration between me and said Ian Johnston who is also a very talented creator of miniature sculpture amongst other things.

News: Limited Edition Poster for Collage Collage

My Coloring/Activity Poster for Collage Collage

My Coloring/Activity Poster for Collage Collage

Collage Collage makes limited edition Posters by local artists. I think they sell for 20$ each and they look pretty good up on the wall especially when you color them!!!

I did this one called ‘Robot Architecture’ and it’s the  3rd in the series. The other two in the series so far are Tania McCormack and Julie Morstad. Oh, I think T&T just did one too, but it’s not in the picture below yet.

These you can see mine colored in by someone. If anyone reads this who bought my poster… I would love to get a photo of it colored in, because I made this poster specifically in mind with lots of playing room for a second party, ie. each poster will be a collaboration between me and the person coloring it/adding to it. I would love to post some of the results.

I have an opening of a selection of original drawings from my book ‘The Day it all blew away’ at Collage Collage next Thursday! Details are above.

(Also we’re making a small special limited edition Coloring Poster for the show should you be in need of one) Come on up there for the opening! Only 7-9pm so yeahhh you totally have time!
