I've been having a rough time trying to stay sane in the heat, but the flipside of that is that I had the entire weekend off and though it's hot out, the weather has been quite nice (even nicer if it were ten degrees cooler). I've decided to list three of my current favourite ways to keep cool - all of which have been put into use today.
Rekorderlig Wild Berries Cider. It's just about perfect. (The Elderflower is also very good).
Until next time.

Square Foot Show at AWOL Gallery. As indicated by the name, all work is 12" x 12" and mine are both on wood panel. I also picked up a brand new 5" x 7" sketchpad, so I plan on getting back to this blogs original purpose soon.
If you're in Toronto and want to check out the show it runs from August 4 - 19 at the AWOL Gallery at 76/78 Ossington Ave, just north of Queen St. and the secondary location is the Twist Gallery at 1100 Queen St. W. Hours are Wed - Sat, 12 - 7 and Sundays 12 - 5.
The best thing I did to get myself away from the weather recently was spending a week in the UK. The ticket was somewhat of an impulse buy back in April and I spent the second week of July in London and Belfast. Aside from the perfect weather (15 and rainy!) and the wonderful company, both London and Belfast were beautiful and a week seemed much too short.
2013 Project is currently open). I was inspired by the work that I did at OCAD with comics and zines and this book features more text and copied images than much of the work I do. I love the ease, small size, and relatively low cost of doing this type of multiple so I'd really love to make more booklets like this and self publish. The image above and three below are pages from the book. All pages are on my website here.
