A New November

There are a lot of things brewing in my cave studio. Here's a taste...

Street view of  the art from my series Broken Ground at the
Interurban Gallery on Hastings and Carrall for a few weeks
 in October, along with some other artists from the hood. 

A 6'x24' collaboration between fellow street artist friends
for the background set of the next Eastside Story Guild
Production: Angels and Ladders

Painting the side gallery in my studio for the Eastside Culture Crawl.
Drop in for the weekend of November 16-18 to see my new work!

We Make Stuff Happen.

I love stories. If you have known me for any amount of time I'm sure you picked that up. And so, it absolutely delights me to share about a book of interviews and stories and images of  100 artists, musicians, dancers, ship builders, cooks, writers, and innovators in the Vancouver area who are "exploring the collision of faith and creativity".  We Make Stuff Volume 1 will be released to the masses in November. More details to come!

An excerpt from my portion of the book:

When you make the commitment to cross the line from normalcy into a world where your vulnerability seems to be unfairly exposed all the time, resistance happens more frequently. And yet, I find that some of my best work is made under this kind of pressure. Perhaps the Creative needs something or someone to push against in order to be challenged.
