MAPS + Building from the ground up

Wait, they don't love you like i love you
Wait, they don't love you like i love you
Ma-a-a-a-ps, wait!

Rather than spend this entire post listing the ways in which Tessar Lo and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are similar (I already did that in a draft, and I got it into the double digits),

I'll just say this, I've seen the work, and much like Karen O, Tessar Lo puts on a helluva show! (rhyming)

This Friday is the opening of his latest solo exhibition, "MAPS", at Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto. From what I've seen I was sincerely'll not want to miss it.

Amanda has done another wonderful write up and interview for the show here, have a look.

Also in the second gallery, is my main man Andrew Hem. He's prepared a number of paintings, sculptures and drawings for the show.

Come out, share a drink and say hi!

Japan Help + Off to see the Wizard!

I wanted to quickly announce that for the next 3 weeks I will be donating 30% of all the purchases made from my store to the Red Cross in an effort to help in the rebuilding of the regions affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

Thank you all in advance for your support and thoughtfulness.

Have a look at what some friends are trying to do to help out as well.

Come say hi this weekend and grab a sketch or 4!

Toronto's World of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Hey everyone! Get your cloaks and wands ready, it's that time of the year again! Wingardium leviosa!!  (get it, cause it's "Wizard" World? What else did you expecto patronum? eh? eh?) 

I was really happy to hear from the folks over at Wizard World, who invited me to attend this year's Comic Con in Toronto. This is my first convention as an Invited artist, which is crazy! I'm really looking forward to it. Along with a lot of prints of my original illustration work, I'm going to have two new prints, zines, buttons, postcards and more. I will also be selling original sketches and drawings of some very and not so very nerdy things. Check out the Wizard world site here, for all the information on tickets, times and guests.

My table number is 611, I'll be there all weekend. Come by and say hi!

Hope to see you there!
