      We have a focus on local and Canadian talent, but since 2003 we have been showcasing a strong contingent of international artists. The last show had artists of varying disciplines from every corner of the planet. Apply now. Thanks Jeff!

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.

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.
