The Big Apple

I landed in NY around 4pm, here’s a couple quick snaps. I had to take the obligatory wing shot. I like the little mountain poking up (this was in Washington, Mt. Baker?).

Goodbye Vancouver, Hello New York!

I mentioned last week that I was invited out to F5 and I just made the last minute decision to go! I’ll be there for the rest of the week so I’ll be updating you from over there! Here’s what I’ll be looking at during the flight. Talk soon!

Blank Canvas!

Students at Ravensbourne College of Design in London have come up with an ingenious way to raise funds for their grad show, a project called Blank Canvas! Packages containing objects purchased in thrift shops were sent out to many of the students’ favourite designers and illustrators to act as blank canvases. The objects were customized by the recipients and sent back, and now the students are having an auction of the work on April 30th at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.

Not that impressed? Let me just rattle off a few of the 50+ artists/designers involved: Milton Glaser! Hellovon! Non-Format! Parra! Job Wouters! Andy J Miller! Julien Vallee! Alex Ostrowski! Stina Persson!

Head over to the Blank Canvas page to get on the guestlist if you want to attend the auction!
