Chicago //

click to make big

Hi everybody,
For my July long weekend, my designer friend Katie &  I went to Chicago to explore a city known for it's architecture, neighborhoods, design, museums, and 'za.
I jotted down what I spent most of my money on. Lots of food & drink (and forever 21... so much better in the States) .

Hi friendos.
This past weekend my friend Katie & I went to the windy city of Chicago to celebrate her 24th birthday, and to explore a city we've both been lusting over for a while.
Here is her birthday card I made for her. She loves her some seafoam green. I'm starting to get into typography a bit more now and love hand rendered type.

New illustration! OUT NOW

It's been an incredible one in Toronto. Given we have 13 months of snow and wind, we now have had 214 days (or so it feels) of brilliant hot sunshine.
Here is my little spot for the current issue of Cottage Life magazine. I was asked to do an illustration for their Q & A section regarding a reader's current state of their blueberry bush; why each year less and less blueberries were present. My art director loved my animals and asked we focus on animals being the culprit. I had the idea of using raccoons (being they are sneaky and adorable) stealthily sneaking berries, being little bandits with their masks. We went back and forth with several ideas and this is the final.
I am generally pleased, and I was so happy to work with such a nice art director. Thanks Quinn!

Recently I have been LUSTING over dying my hair something different. I have been highlighting my hair since I was fifteen. My sister had straight blonde hair and would always dye it different colours. I was so jealous. I would try to bring up the subject of another colour but was slapped with "Don't touch your hair! It's so curly and gorgeous! It's beautiful!!!!!!!" from nearly everyone.
Today, I am a full-fledged adult. I can make my own decisions, go to Shoppers Drugmart and buy "wacky" hair dye, and make some regrettable mistakes the hard way. However, I am still tugged back with that fear of ruining what I have going on. Life is so hard, right?

I decided to test out some of my favourite lusts-of-the-moment on some pretty femmes.

I'm going to be doing a lot more stuff a lot more often.

It's been a while (seven effing months to be exact) since I've spoken to you all & that's not right.
But, do not worry. I am fine. I am alive. I am drawing and laughing and drinking lemonade and eating plenty of ice cream for the summer, enjoying the sunshine as much as I can since winter lasted approximately 24091 weeks.

I've got lots of exciting news that I am going to share in the next few weeks, so keep posted.
