ok I know this is cheating because it's not my art. Hum, can I call it my muse? This is one of my all time favourite photographs. It's my dad at 19, in a mysteriously sentimental pose with his friend Henry. I find these buried photos of my dad in our storage room and they are my butch role models.

hmmm... is it strange to have a business card with someone else's picture on it? This is one of my favourite drawings of emma.

I didn't have internet for 5 days! I wasn't keeping up with my promise! What would Julia Child say? Gah, not that I liked that movie too much. But now I'm back and I'm going to retrace these last five days, and backdate the bits of art that I've been collecting since thursday.

globe and mail facts and arguments

the newspaper published an essay about feeling twenty five even though you're 65. So I drew a picture of my dad, as a window reflection. He's looking out at an image of himself taken from my favourite photograph from his university days in the 60s. Dad, I hope this isn't a bummer...! xoxox

I wasn't terribly proud of this edition of The Illustrated Gentleman. The bottom drawing is really patchy and the advice verges on elitist. I didn't sufficiently explain my intention, which was just to survey men's advice columns. I think it looks like this is my sincere, snooty opinion.
In any case I'm grateful to the folks at - they love my art and take the good with the not so good.

Asian Stud

Chase told me about how G-Dragon is his favourite asian male role model because he revels in queerness but he's still a mainstream Korean heartthrob

today you got punched on the street. It was a random act of violence, and it was racist too. I don't know you and you don't know me, but we sat together for a while. I showed you a photograph of yourself so you could see that the blood was gone.
It meant a lot to me to share in your grief, and I'm glad that you let me sit with you for a while.

Trials of the Butch-lovin-Butch

I was so pleased to hear that some of you know this feeling so I thought I'd polish it up.
