so for my last project for nano publishing I decided to make a catalogue of all the music I've listened to since I was 8. It was so much fun and I ended up making trading card that turned into jacob's ladders! TOO MUCH FUN. all of them were contained in little boxes that had the above print of "Make Us Proud Kid" on em. They turned out great and I had a lot of great feedback. These were also for sale at 69 Vintage and the Small Press Book Fair this past weekend. I'll post pictures of the real thing soon, but till then, here's a sample of what to expect.
here's a snippet of some work I did for a zine I made for my nano publishing class. It was entitled "Bare Hands" and was on display and for sale at 69 Vintage for a week along with work from everyone else in the class as part of Nano Nano 5.
final illustration on an article about the freakiest and weirdest museums in the world. Among them: the Spam museum, the Pencil museum, the Pez museum, the German Sausage museum, the Torture museum and the Cockroach hall of Fame.
Its been too long! Here's one of my final projects that I forgot to post right at the end of school. But its over now and heres to summer fun and art! For this project I had to find an issue to push in a street art inspired manner. I wanted to encourage sharing and connections between strangers in a city like toronto. So I made 4 mix cds, each with a specific theme, or emotion i wanted to share and transmit with whoever picked it up. One to relax to, one to rock out to, one to feel happy to, and one to love to. I designed and hand made the cd sleeves and went around town and distributed them anonymously, leaving some in bike baskets, in coffee shops and food courts. I got to catch a glimpse of some of the recipients, and all i have to say is that it made my to day to just see them smile. Success!
Here are some spots for a travel mag. The first is about the Museum of Broken Relationships. The second is about a town in Sweden that is being moved due to its foundations being on top of a mine thats predicted to collapse. The third is about a Zero-Waste town in Japan who divide their waste into 34 fricken categories! Also, TONED DOWN PALETTE! God thats weird. I miss bright shiny colours. :(
Here's a little preview of what i've been up to this reading week. These will be up and available for purchase for a measly 20 bucks. Be sure to check these little babies out in all their splendour at the White Cloud, Buttermilk Sky show going on at Hotshot Gallery from March 8th to the 21st. Opening night is the 11th. Hope to see all your pretty faces there!
Here are the pieces I made for the You Know What Love Is show thats going on at Sleeping Giant right now. The show was sex themed and I decided to explore the concept of the sexualization of child play. This was my first endeavour with Gouache which was fun. I think I'll keep exploring it. Some prints available.
