a second set of the tragically hip tickets went on sale yesterday at 10 am, and i tried to buy, with no luck. #sadcanadian
since no one will sell me a ticket, i spent some time unleashing my sadness with a pencil, then took to adobe illustator, to complete my lettering.
wheat kings is one of my fave songs by the hip, so i’m sharing the backdrop with you!

if there is one thing i am really proud of, and i mean by a lot, it is that i am canadian. there’s so much of canada that i’ve yet to discover, but i’m already so in love this place. it is home; in all senses of the word.
when i started following along with the news of the fires in fort mac, alberta, so many people were already displaced. they may have had to leave their brick and mortar homes, but canada is still their home; and canada is full of friendly neighbours. in a matter of days, canadians had donated more than $50 million dollars to canadian red cross, with the government matching all individual donations. i’ve seen the screens in the subway stations here in toronto advertising ways to text in your donations. it’s everywhere, and people are taking part.
without a pocket full of cash to send out to alberta, i’ve come up with a miniseries of 3 posters that can be printed and posted to try and rally more donations. might be nothing, but if they get even one person to donate a canadian loonie or toonie, it’s something.

another tuesday, another 12-pack. still not beer, but just as refreshing.
summer is here and that means all the tasty fruits are ripe for the picking! today i’ve illustrated 12 of my favourite fruits to snack on in the summer. sketched out in ink, photoshopped in the colour with the brush tool, and bam- an assortment of colourful treats.
with mother’s day coming up this weekend, it was the perfect time for trove to send out their 2015 spring lookbook. take a peek at some of the spring goodies they have in store and check out any one of their three locations here in toronto.
to mix it up this season, i’ve added some of my handlettering into the design.
happy spring and happy mothers day to all the mamas out there!
happy fathers day to my main man dean. thanks for always being good for a laugh, and teaching me what’s important in life- like beer.
cheers to many more bevies with my bud!
camping in 1986. that’s my cousin heather at his shoe!
