It’s one of my fvaourite Toronto events and I’ve taken part since it started back in 2008. Tonight I’m starting with The Tragically Hip and Molson Canadian at Sound Academy. The show isn’t a Nuit Blache event but those are tickets I won’t pass up! My portrait is featured in an installation called Life Lessons at Funding Matters Gallery  (Zone C…

Beautiful.     Google flashing its technology through a gorgeous music video for Arcade Fire.     Toshiba sending the first chair to space attached to a weather balloon.    …

I do.   But you have to create it. You have to build it. Manufacture it. The means of production are all yours. Open the doors to the factory inside your mind. Let it all out. Let it spill over the sides of everything and flood the basement. Build a house out of it. Build a life. A magical life to live.

This was a fun lil’ afternoon project yesterday. Took flowers and make my first summer flower crown. I used to make heaps of things as a kid, I really should make more. You should make more. I’ve penciled in some time with my sewing machine, Zoey. We’re well over due for a hang out. I can’t wait for my hair to grow now.  Any tips?

I was shocked at just how actually massive the event was last night. There were multiple floors, rooms, interactive art displays and lots of suits. In support of art, I decided to make my hair really stand out by adding lots of colour. I was quite surprised there weren’t more ‘artistic’ looking people, it was very corporate. Fun though! I LOVE the AGO and used to be gallery member. Thinking I’ll get a new membership…
