floating bookshelf

today I put up an invisible bookshelf. It slides inside the bottom book. Isn't it beautiful?

sigh. art for the office.
once they said "don't you draw? why don't you design us a logo?" and I said "I don't pick up my pen for less than $75." which they laughed at...
Dear office, even though you are prejudiced, ableist, transphobic and irreconcilably removed from reality, your routine and pittance spare me from a what could be a deeper depression. So truly, thanks.

I used to tuck these zines into my music demos as extra incentive to buy them.
Which gives me an etsy idea...

Well I found an old zine of mine from four years ago. In fact I found a few and I didn't think they were very good. But this one, I still really enjoyed it.

The Girl and the Robot

I'm very proud of this directing. But the poignant acting is all credited to Patrick Salvani. And some help from Robyn, and Royksopp.

street heart

this dirty little heart was outside of my door waiting for me

hanging closet

well... I feel like this is my art of the day! I built it out of dollar store materials and I'm awfully proud of it, I even colour coded the shirts. I discovered that I only wear black pink and blue. So much more oddly limited than I ever realized.

we don't have much but we have lovely neighbours.

Friday, September 10, 2010

settling into the new house so slowly... we have just one of each hah. But both Manal and I cried, "look! we actually have a cutlery drawer!" Small steps.

the Don't Be Shys

I forgot that I did this! In 2004 I was in a band called the Don't Be Shys, and I made a comic out of our lyrics to give out to the audience. Rad! Ah moving to new houses, finding old things.

ocad show

so here we go! The big day. They showed their art at our art and design college. They all broke my heart. Jonathan had made a comic about his enemy Jacob, who once upon a time, used to be his friend.
The parents were surprisingly unimpressed! "This isn't cartooning is it" one of the dads actually snapped. I think it was The Honesty - he couldn't face it.

micron .005

oh these precious drawing pens that changed my life. I covet them, I save up money to buy them, I put them in special drawers. It may not have been wise to distribute them to 8-year olds... I found them scattered recklessly. Recklessly!
