JP Spanbauer and I are currently working on a marketing strategy to make some serious $$ for a documentary film about Cancun-born, Toronto-based tattoo artist Lemur Vit (check out his amazing wok here).
Lemur and his girlfriend Jen are just starting to work on this movie, so we will be making all kinds of materials including online support, events, social networking aspects, etc.
Here’s a poster for the first fundraiser that will take place at Tranzac on Sunday, November 11. Live music, DJs, and delicious homemade Mexican treats will all contribute to great fun, as well as costume contests, raffles with such prizes as tattoos and piercings from the Exotix Studio Come check it out if you can. Here’s a link to the Facebook event page.
?’I'm Not Just a Goat’ website launched, for CPAR (Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief).
YAY! I was picked to participate in the project Arrivals.Ca, which celebrates New Citizens in Canada.
I’ll be interviewed (written and video), my story will be published in Toronto Star, and get a portrait shot by the acclaimed artist Che Kothari (photo-exhibition at the City Hall on July 10). Come to the exhibition with me to celebrate! I’ll post the deets later.
We are now thinking of a name for it, but it’s all set and ready to go, and at our own place which is amazing – so let us know if you need to print on clothing, make paper prints, anything you want really. The possibilities are endless – we’re not thinking of printing henna tattoos on skin!
Here’s the first print JP made this weekend:
Things I must do at least once in my lifetime
I don’t know what I’m more excited about – seeing Radiohead, witnessing At the Drive In reunite, or watching Snoop Dogg rap on stage with the eerily realistic hologram of Tupac Shakur! In any case, this weekend is going to be extraordinary!
The opening of #Hashtag Gallery went really well yesterday. Check it out if you have a chance, it’s on Bathurst and Dundas.
Some people from my Art Night showcased their work, JP Spanbauer and I displayed 3 pieces we did together – the Andrew Jackson Jihad posters and ‘We Miss Our Home’.
You can see the photos from the opening here to see the space and the work.
