here i go…


p.s. still 19 hours left for my crowd funding effort! woot woot! click here to donate!


i thought the days of print were behind us, sadly

that is until i ran across ottawa’s latest arts and culture rag herdmag


it goes after my heart with its charming small almost-square size and quirky sensibility

i don’t know who is paying for this beautiful little magazine but i look forward to cutting it up for as long as it is around. i will even likely read it first!

i leave you with… the alien and the mystery machine

attended an interesting event and the NAC last night

northern scene!

collaborative art, big crowd, loud music, a fashion show featuring designers from our territories

happy to be celebrating our north

i have yet to visit

but it is on the list

nice to see you out Ottawa



she spotted her dress

i spotted her!

anya and me

what a pleasure to bump into fashion designer Anya Ayoung Chee (…of project runway fame) while wearing one of her limited edition dresses at the Miami Art Basel

a laugh for her

a thrill for me

i hope she approved of the styling

she is a total doll, a talent, and stunning in person

thank you Anya for the great dress and the even better story


p.s. in i was not too busy lying on the beach i would post about the show. soon…

les demoiselles

turbulent dreams about the women of my life

awoken, then, at the witching hour

up since

les demoiselles took shape around five thirty
