Erin Rommel

Beirut’s The Flying Club Cup album has been my soundtrack for the past couple weeks, I don’t really know why. And then out of the blue, Erin Rommel passes me some work and I find this little canvas book buried amongst some of her older (student) work.

Frankenstein / Ballets Russes

Not too long ago, I saw an image of this book on jjjjound and wanted to know what it was. By some magic, it appeared on my doorstep this week. Ballets Russes is a beautiful documentation of the Russian ballets that took place in Paris that moved ballet into the high fashion world. I love the drawing section! It’s a hardcover with nearly 350 pages so I’m sure the shipping wasn’t cheap – Huge thank you to Anton for your mystical mind-reading abilities and everyone else at, Frankenstein. You can purchase the book here.

Thank you Cause+Affect!

Last week I spoke at Pecha Kucha Vancouver Vol 6 and the 500+ seats in the theatre were all spoken for, the place was PACKED! This week I’ve been getting email after email from people who attended the event and I owe all these connections to Cause+Affect. They are the design studio that has been hosting Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver, and I was honored when they asked me to speak.

This is a little promo video (made by the good folks at Salazar) which shows what Cause+Affect are about and near the end there’s a bit of footage of Pecha Kucha. There is a video of my presentation coming and I’ll post it up as soon as it’s available.

Steven and Jane – thank you so much for the opportunity to speak I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Thank you to all of you who made it out on Thursday and those of you who couldn’t make it but supported me in spirit! I felt it!!

Brian Tong

Brian Tong created this totally impractical lunch kit out of a huge log, for his grad show. The spot for the silver chopsticks is a nice touch and I like that fact that there is even a spot for a napkin.
