Vancouver + New York: A Good Book Drive

agoodbookdrive

Heads up to everyone living in Vancouver and New York, the annual event known as A Good Book Drive is currently running until the end of the month in both cities. The project is a simple way to encourage a new generation of readers and to get good books into the hands of kids who need new ones.

All you have to do is buy a copy of your favourite kid’s book and drop it off at one of the drop-off sites. At each site they will give you a giant sticker to put inside the front cover, to be used to write a special note to the kid that will receive your book.

If you follow them on Instagram you’ll be able to see what book I donated when it gets shared there (should be soon).

See a full list of Vancouver and New York drop-off locations below!

Concert Film of the Day: Efterklang and Vincent Moon

efterklang-vincentmoon

Remember that time we had the first-ever Booooooom film screening and twice as many people showed up as I had planned for, and I had to find more couches and chairs so hundreds of you could watch the film? If you were there then you remember the film we screened was called An Island, a collaboration between my favourite band in the world, Efterklang, and acclaimed director Vincent Moon. Well they have collaborated once again!

Earlier this year Efterklang performed a concert with the Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester (South Denmark Philharmonic), Sønderjysk Pigekor (South Denmark Girls Choir), and Hans Ek (conductor). The band invited Vincent Moon to capture the concert in one long take, in a way that only he could. The end result is magnificent. You can watch the entire film below!

Once again, this week our sponsor is Craftsy which provides video tutorials and downloadable eGuides for aspiring artists. The resources they provide are aimed at people who want to quickly brush up on some basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on the basics of watercolor.

The eGuide provides an introduction to things like paper types, color value, temperature, and intensity, as well as the proper technique for swatching new paints.  If you didn’t go to art school, this is an easy way to pick up some fundamentals. The best part being it costs nothing.

If you want, you can download the Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor.
