Around Town

Some Toronto Pride...

And there's this slightly mad street near our house where people have strung up all sorts of random objects on the shared fence...


And it's definitely sunblock and poppy season now...


And finally I dragged my friend Bianca to the Canada Blooms and Home show (which turned out to be pretty lame... Cheap Walmart furniture everywhere, zero taste) but at least we clocked some drawing time (pink frost hellebore)

Sketching the Line

I submitted some life drawings to Toronto's "Sketching the Line" and a couple of them were selected for display! Look out for yours truly on your bus/subway car.

Cat drawings everywhere

Ever since we brought Momo home in October there have been nothing but cat pictures on my phone and in my sketchbook. I even immortalised the little beastie in enamel pin form.

Casual Business

Instead of printing a pile of business cards for con-goers this year I now have this casual business STAMP! For leaving my mark on bits of paper, foreheads, etc.

2016 Annie's: Racing Greyhounds

My classmate/coworker Taha Neyestani and I were nominated for the student category for the Annie's (Taha won the top prize, you can see his masterpiece here: https://vimeo.com/141734077). We fretted over what to wear and I had the semi-mad idea to make a skirt for it. It mostly turned out okay.

If n&p were a TV series...

You can be sure I would push for a BACKSTORY EPISODE of course! Nips was abandoned at the police station where he was taken in and brought up in the police academy while Porkington is from a well-to-do aristocratic family but chose to dedicate his life to public service.


I pictured this hypothetical show taking place on normal backgrounds but switching to the newspaper for travel shots, transitions, opening sequences, and closing credits. There would be a nice big story arc that spans the season like a proper episodic drama and smaller arcs and themes between.

There are also plenty of supporting actors in my TV series musings:

Suffragette bunbuns
Bunbun with Onions
More bunbuns
Cameraman & Subject
Morning Tea & Pasties
