Creative Mornings / Vancouver Event

Creative Mornings / Vancouver event
Next Friday I will be speaking at Creative Mornings. This monthly lecture series, created by Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss), has quickly spread to 36 different cities including Vancouver.

The main reason I am doing this talk is because I am making a conscious effort to pursue everything that I am afraid of. I will be talking about aliens, and the 1996 blockbuster film “The Rock”. There is a possibility I will never speak publicly again.

Short interview on Creative Mornings/Van Tumblr: HERE.

Tix for my talk go on sale on Monday (they are free): HERE.

    Hey man, good luck with the talk, you’ll be great! The few times I’ve done something like that they went past incredibly quickly (for me at least, maybe not for the audience…). Will it be online anywhere?

    • ya i think it will be available via the creative mornings vancouver tumblr

  • ElleQ

    This is really cool! Booooooom and Swiss miss are my two favorite blogs! 😀 I wish you good luck!

  • Great talk today Jeff. Now the only thing to fear is fear itself!

    The video should come up here in a few days:

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
