Silent Auction

The Art & Sole silent auction is now online! I was one of 30+ artists who took part in the show, customizing a pair of PF Flyers. We are now auctioning off the work as a way of raising a bit of money for Arts Umbrella, a fantastic program here in Vancouver that provides arts education for kids regardless of financial situation. If you pop over to the site and place a bid on a shoe or purchase the book, you are supporting some great artists and more importantly supporting a vital arts program!

This piece above was done by my friend Danny Vermette.

If anyone bids on my shoes 25% goes directly to Arts Umbrella, and I will also donate my artist share (66%) to them as well.


Here are a few of the other great shoes:

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
