Messy

In case you didn't know, this is a "you broke it, you bought it" kinda deal.

Scars

"Scars are not injuries. A scar is a healing. After an injury, a scar is what makes you whole."
- China Miéville

Mortified

I had a blast taking part in Mortified! Thanks to all of you who made it out! I feel so much closer to those who heard my creepy teenage love poems written to Katie Holmes and angry rock lyrics. As the Mortified saying at the end of every show goes: "We are freaks and we are fragile, but we survived."

Mtl en Arts

This was a piece for the Mtl en Arts festival in Montreal. Translated it says "Let's Fall in Love Like Both Our Parents Aren't Divorced." Today marks seven years that I've been married to my wife and this sentiment is truer for us now than it was when we met. Love doesn't have to be chained to the odds of something lasting. A love without cynicism is one of the best things in life.

The Murmurs

“My soul is a hidden orchestra; I know not what instruments, what fiddlestrings and harps, drums and tamboura I sound and clash inside myself. All I hear is the symphony.”

― Fernando Pessoa

Bullet Proof

I was asked by Ovation TV to design a shirt for their Stand For The Arts program which works to raise support to protect funding for arts and culture programs that are under threat of being cut from the federal budget. These programs make up minuscule amounts of our budget (like less than half of a half of a percent) and offer vital programs (things like arts education for kids, art therapy for soldiers with PTSD and obviously way more). These shirts aren't for sale, just promo for their organization at events they have, but seeing as how the arts is important to me and has been throughout my life, hearing members of our government say that it's not even 0.006% a priority is concerning.
