Christmas is nearly upon us!

With Christmas creeping up on us like some sort of sneaky, excitable elf with pointy shoes, I feel like it's time to post my Christmas card that I printed this year. It is a small edition of etchings, with an image size of approximately 5.25" by 3.25".
I also, within the past week, went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey not once, but twice. It is not a common occurrence for me to see a movie in theatres more than once (not least due to my restricted student budget) and I must say, my reviews are quite positive. While I realize you likely aren't reading this blog for my movie-critiquing opinions, I highly recommend seeing the film. It's a hefty beast, weighing in at about 3 and a quarter hours with previews, but it is about one and a half rabbit-sleigh-fulls worth of fun (you'll understand when you see it). It is significantly more cartoony than The Lord of the Rings was, and doesn't take itself overly seriously; there are plenty of light-hearted, humourous moments, befitting a fantastical adventure in search of lost treasure. The attention to detail is, on this second trip to Middle Earth, just as superb as it was in The Lord of the Rings. But I won't bore you any more with my opinions. Go see it yourself!

Have a happy holiday, and I'll likely see you again in the new year!

First semester is officially over; Christmas break is here. 

Given that I'm 'writing' my thesis, however, this is more of a studio break. It will be full of family, friends, breathing space, reading, and drawing, in preparation for the return of thesis in January. One potluck into the holidays, I can definitely say I'm looking forward to an enjoyable break. 

Happy holidays, everyone. New work to come, keep your eyes on my website at Thanks!

Great Hall show is up!

It has been one crazy semester.

Here we are, early December already, and my thesis year at OCAD is just about halfway over. Last week, my printmaking class hung our show in the Great Hall at 100McCaul Street, and it was great to see such a variety of work. For the better part of the semester, everyone has been off in their own corners, and this was really the second time in 3 months that we've gathered and been able to see everything that people have been producing.

Now, I may be biased, but I think we've got a pretty good showing in the space. If you're reading this, and happen to be in the neighbourhood before December 8th, I recommend you check it out.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what installation looks like.

Until next time!
