Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.
I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.
My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.

This week our @Booooooom Instagram is being taken over by San Francisco-based illustrator Dennis Brown aka Bagger43. I’ve followed his work for several years now, his GUTSONPAPER book from 2005 is something I still look at from time to time.
The ink sketchbook drawings he’s posted lately have made him one of my favourite people to follow on Instagram. Please give a warm welcome to him as he posts inspiration for you over the next week.
