Today on the Sea Wall…

Today I saw the man who is in charge of the wonder mobile. He was at the sea -wall slightly bent over his contraption with tons of bags that have whatever you think is in them attached to it. As I rode by I could hear a sound emanate -from one if the bags?- that sounded like a miniature circus winding down and being sucked into some kind of magical vortex. After that, all there was, was the sound of the seagulls, the wind chimes of a rich luxury apartment dweller and me knowing that I had witnessed. Magic.

Subbing

Today I got to play sub for the super-fantastic Julie Morstad , for one of her illustration classes at ECIAD. It was really fun for me to give feedback to such a talented bunch of young illustrators.

There was no illustration department at ECIAD when I was a student there, and it feels great to see so many students who are interested and encouraged to pursue illustration as their field. Vancouver has a very strong background in conceptual art and is a bit behind when it comes to illustration in my opinion. I feel a great change in the wind and am really happy to be apart of it.

Having said that here is my drawing – and this time also a bit of writing with it – to reflect this day.

This is what comes out when I talk to my Mom

Drew this just now while talking to my mom on the phone. Kind of reminds me of a mix of me when I was little and Pippi Longstocking. Makes sense:)

My dog makes me laugh

Today’s drawing to reflect the day. It’s good to have a silly silly dog who doesn’t care about things that people care about… cuz he’s … a DOG!

It’s sunny out and I’m feeling musical

Yes, yes, the second the sun comes out here in Vancouver magical things happen. Music starts playing and children start to sing. Hurray hurray, summer is not far away! Some quick spring celebratory drawings.
