Whistler

I spent my weekend white water rafting with some friends near Whistler, and it was incredible! I was too cheap to pay for the souvenir photos so here’s a shot of me throwing a ball to my friend Butters instead.

Let’s Colour

A couple months ago I received an invitation to Jodhpur, India, to be a part of the Let’s Colour project. The idea was to bring colour to community spaces around the world in an effort to encourage the people in those areas.

I got a rush visa and was all set to go but there was a mix-up with my flights and I couldn’t get there in time. Lucky for us, award-winning director Adam Berg made it to India (as well as London, Paris, and Rio de Janeiro) and has put together a beautiful look at this inspiring project.

The case of the Missing Letters

It appears we have a mystery on our hands!

the case of the missing letters

Last week my friend Shinead and I came across all these beautiful piles of plaster letters laid out on the boardwalk on Granville Island. We waited around for awhile hoping someone would come along and explain what they were for. Shinead noticed a whole pile of O’s and we thought it would be fun to quickly shoot an image for the header of the site. Eventually a girl came along and asked if we had removed the letters from the hill around the corner. We hadn’t. She informed us that they were part of an art project by a student at Emily Carr University but didn’t know much else about them. We waited for a little bit longer and then left.

Yesterday I received an email from Shannon McCubbin expressing her surprise to see her letters being used as our new header graphic! She attached the following image of her installation on the hill:

Sadly, Shannon informed me that the letters have all gone missing! They were quite expensive to produce and she is trying to track them down. I’m sure someone grabbed them thinking they were free. I was tempted to take a letter when I came across the piles too, but then I remembered I’m not a THIEF (haha sorry). But seriously, if you are the person who took the letters I’m sure Shannon won’t be mad, she just wants them back!

Email Shannon any info, an apology, or a word of encouragement here.
