HP Love Case Contest



Thank you. This was so fun. Much gratitude to everyone who entered. Having a blog is a bit of a strange thing, I’ve been publishing for years and with people not commenting much anymore, it’s nice to get feedback!

I Love You in 3D and underneath the moon.


Shannon and I shot in the snow on Monday at lunch for Coral TV. After work I went to Untitled & Co. on Queen¬†Street for the media preview of Hot Pop Factory‘s 3D kissing booth. I was so cool. I love 3D printing, I’ve told you about 8K times.


When they aren’t making 3D statues, people pendants or rings with faces on them ¬†for Valentine’s, they make jewellery. I have this white 3D ring below and a matching necklace.


And I really want to wear this.


Untitled & Co is where I got the Thug Mansion Barbie sweater.


They also carry Stolen Girlfriends Club one of my fav designers from New Zealand.


Remember when I went to ¬†New Zealand Fashion Week? One of the funniest things I’ve done ever. ¬†The SGF show was in a theatre and it was a fashion wedding at the end. ¬†My dream basically.¬†








This is me getting scanned and that on screen is me in 3D. This stuff below goes into the 3D printer to make objects that have been scanned (with Kinect) into files on  computer.



I really want one of these rings. You can order for around $40. ¬†I am getting the photobooth print tomorrow and giving it to my valentine. ♥¬†Wait till this technology gets better and faster. ¬†I can’t wait.



Sometimes I feel like

life is moving so fast. So many things happen in a day, where does the time go?


This came in an email from Mr. Brainwash. Love his emails. Have you watched the Banksy doc? It’s really good. You’ll find it on Netflix. Art & Copy is a good one too. Watched it again the other night. Looking forward to a great weekend of¬†relaxing, hibernating and toblogganing.


Found this today, thought you’d like it: Hugh Crawford

Photographer Hugh Crawford took a photo a day for 18 years. I started with his photos from 1982 (my year) and it’s neat how people and things look so much like life on Instagram. ¬†One of the things I love about being on the Internet is the massive collection of photos from the last ten years. Check out the archive of all Hugh’s photos here.


1892 Looks Just Like Today, Maybe Yesterday…


Jamie Livingston (October 25, 1956 РOctober 25, 1997) was a New York-based photographer, film-maker and circus performer. Between March 31, 1979 and October 25, 1997, the day of his death, he took a single picture nearly every day with a Polaroid SX-70 camera.[1][2]

Livingston’s ‘Polaroid a Day’¬†photographic¬†diary started at¬†Bard College¬†and though some photos have gone missing from the collection, 6,697 Polaroids remain. The collection, dated in sequence, has been organized by his friends Hugh Crawford and Betsy Reid into an exhibit at the Bertelsmann Campus Center at¬†Bard College¬†called “Photo of the Day”, which opened in 2007.[3]¬†By the next year, the pictures were hosted online and became a popular discovery of several online¬†blogs.[4]

Oh, pardon the swag!¬†I’m in Calgary, Alberta for the 10th anniversary of Paul Hardy, a Calgary based designer making a name for himself around the globe.¬†I’m one of about a dozen bloggers who have have graciously been sent here by Calgary Tourism for a weekend of fashion, fun, food, and friends.

I’m fell into the internet this morning after a deep sleep in my king size bed at Hotel Arts and now I really need to hurry to get downstairs. Driver picks us up in half an hour¬†ten minutes for a fancy media lunch. I have a few hours to hibernate shop and hangout this afternoon before the show & afterparty. I love fashion. I can’t wait! Kinda glad it’s snowing so I can wear a hat and fur.

Oh, and it’s totally SNOWING.


This is my inspiration for the day.

¬†Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

Henry David Thoreau
US Transcendentalist author (1817 – 1862)

I experienced Nuit Blanche last night. The Hip put on an AWESOME show. The Drambuie event at Camera Parts was awesome. Will post some photos from those tomorrow.


For today, check out this rad video by my Jon Simonassi from The Biz Media digital video agency. There was SO MUCH to see last night. Were you out? What did YOU see? LMK!


For one night each year, Toronto’s streets become an outdoor interactive art gallery. Last year our goal was to beat the press and release a video before sunrise the next morning. This year our goal was no different. The crowds were huge, the art was amazing and we were up all night making this video so you can experience it all over again Рthe very next day.

Nuit Blanche Toronto 2012 was produced by BizMedia
Shot & edited by cinematographer Jon Simonassi



Tonight is Nuit Blanche and the city is alive with art installaions, music, and culture. 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 29).  Life Lessons features 311 portraits of community figures who have helped shape the city of Toronto. Other notables ar Margaret Atwood, David Miller, Douglas Coupland, Justin Bieber, Atom Egoyan, George Strombo, David Mirvish, Susur Lee, and Karen Kain. I am extremely honoured to be in this amazing group! The project will be exhibited using Sony HD TV screens displaying life-sized images of each subject at print-quality resolution.

  • When:¬†¬†¬†¬† September 29th, 2012
  • Time:¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 7:03 PM
  • Location:¬†¬†FUNDING matters GALLERY –¬†33 DUNDAS ST E, TORONTO ON¬†¬†¬†M5A 2A2 (East of Sherbourne, South side)¬†

See the event page on Facebook to view portraits of other notable people in the Toronto community. 


¬†One of my fav years was 2009 when I went to U of T then ran into my sister on Queen Street at 3am. Another fav was 2010 when we filmed the video that won me the Virgin America Provocateur title. Here’s a little art history on my Nuit Blanche adventures.

After the Hip and Life Lesson’s exhibit, I’ll be heading to Camera Parts on Queen Street for Drambuie’s Extraordinary Night pop-up installation. It’s definitely something you want to check out as you’re cruising around. We posted about it on the Pulp&Fiber blog at work. Come by to discover your extraordinary side! I should be there about midnight.


I wish you a fun filled night of artistic exploration. If you see me make sure to say HI.




I love the Say Media blog. They post Venn diagrams about advertising, marketing, and social media every Friday. This week “Great Advertising is Art”.

Some examples they posted today of trendsetters paving the way for awesome advertising at art. You will like the video. Beautiful.

Valfre is one of my fav artists. Her drawings are so good. Her blog is here. One of my favs is in this post.


ART/ADVERTISING? Both. What advertising/art are you creating?
