Je ne veux pas travailler

Last week I had the pleasure of going on a little road trip to the Country and Montreal with the always charming Melodie. It was pretty great, we were heading to Montreal to go support our boys Jon Todd and Martin Wittfooth and check out the work they produced for their two-person show at Yves Laroche Galerie D'Art.

Before heading into Montreal, we took a little stop over to the country to visit Mel's family, and see her AMAZING country home. Why she left, i have no idea! But I know for sure, if I grew up there I would never leave!...it was really hard to leave the country, sooo relaxing.
The open fields behind her house, and the creek (which was very Lord of the Rings btw)...unbelievableGot to meet up with our favorite Half Finnish/Korean wonder Ms. Kniivila! Who happens to be living in Montreal right now, trying to learn un peu de francais! Very Impressive!
Mr. Wittfooth, letting his swagger hang out.
Pappy and Todd
My favorite pieces *
The horse was sooo sweet! I know Mel was in love, obviously haha...but it was actually really crazy!
No one in the corner got swagger like us??....maybe not.

The work that the guys produced was really incredible... it was a really big leap forward for both the guys, and I'm glad that it showed! The show did very well, and the guys have big shows to look forward to in the future! Congrats guys!

Here's a write up that my friend Amanda had done about Martin's work, in case you wanted to check it out.

I want to give a big thanks to the Papp household for putting me up / putting up with me and being such great hosts!

Anyways, I'm gonna try and accomplish something today while I'm home...hopefully not for too much longer, hah. :D

Take care.

Love your blog. Just to say, as a native French speaker, we say: 'Je n'aime pas le T' which means litteraly 'I don't like tea'. This is a rule to remember: no T with Je. Therefore you should write: Je ne veux pas travailler. Tough language. Your drawings are great. Keep doing the good job! Regards.
