This one’s just for the Vancouverites – my good friend (and talented local illustrator) Ehren Salazar, is hosting a variety show called Hidden Agenda. Friday February 13th at The Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright St. on Granville Island) – doors at 7:30pm – show at 8:00pm. There will be live music and a special encore screening of Animatron 2008 (a compilation of short animations)! Here’s a little message from Ehren not entirely related to Hidden Agenda, but not not related either:
Two photo contest giveaways to tell you about from two magazines I like. Theme Magazine is giving away a Rome women’s snowboard! Just send them your best photo from this snowboard season and they’ll pick their favourite submission! You only have until January 31st to get it in so hurry! Send photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Beautiful/Decay is also hosting a photo contest to celebrate their new apparel site – send them a photo of yourself wearing any B/D apparel and they’ll send you a free t-shirt. Deadline: February 20th. Send photos to: email@example.com

Since the image is so small I’ve copied out all the instructions below:
Thank you to all of you who sent emails just to say hello over the holidays! I am doing my best to get through them all! It’s exciting to see the readership of this site really expanding in unexpected directions. Hush Puppies for example, found out that I love slippers and moccasins and kindly sent me a nice pair! Cheers you guys!
Just want to take a moment to wish you all a giant Happy New Year! I spent New Years Eve up on the mountain with my sister and hope to be up there lots over the next couple months, but rest assured I’ll be working harder than ever on the site! Thank you all for the support over the last six months – I look forward to inspiring you and being inspired by you all in 2009. Cheers!
I was recently asked by my friend Bob Kronbauer to be a regular contributor over on his new site, Club Mumble. Bob is the talented guy behind the Little Giants series which I mentioned before and I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of his latest project.
To give you an idea of the Club Mumble roster, let me just rattle off a few names: Michael Leon, Thomas Campbell, Don Pendleton, Angela Boatwright, Geoff McFetridge, Andrew Pommier, Kevin Lyons, Todd Bratrud… you get the idea, this list is no joke. If you’re into the art/skate scene you’ll want to bookmark it immediately.
Vancouver is finally getting some snow! Here I am looking very excited (and wearing the exact thing I am in every single photo on this website – it’s like I am a poor clown with only one costume). The reason I am excited is because this snowy weather can only mean one thing… (there’s a hint somewhere in this picture)…
