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.

summer is here and that means vacation is coming and that means games- all of which means a hugely long, run on sentence and improper grammar!
this tuesday evening i spent doodling some old fashion dominoes with a pop of fresh colours!

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!
happy sunday everyone!
today i hit the road with friends and we ventured out to the aberfoyle flea market to spend the day. it was chilly but at least we had sun and were able to enjoy a few hours of shopping outdoors. there were amazing things to be found and given a big budget, i could have easily furnished a whole street of homes.
after years of searching for a keeper, today i picked up a type tray for a bargain price of $25! i also got a W, H, I and a 2 to display on it once it’s hung on my wall. the third and last thing i picked up was an old wooden ruler for $5. i could have filled a monster sized truck and this will definetly be going on the calendar as a must attend event next year!
mark your calendars… april 27, 2014 the market will reopen for the 2014 season. see you there!
