A video portrait of Berlin-based Japanese artist Two One, by filmmaker Michael Danischewski. Watch below!
Excited to see one of my internet buddies, photographer Yumna Al-Arashi, featured by Teva for their video series featuring all sorts of creatives. I included her in my Best of Instagram series awhile back, her feed is one of my favourites. You should follow her here: @yumnaaa.
I’ve included a bunch of my favourite images from her Instagram below, as well as the video!
I don’t know if I’m just extra emotional tonight or what, but I cried two times watching this video by director David Barnes. This kid’s honesty and the beautiful filming and editing, ahh it’s too much for me right now. A+
Theo is 10 years old, and almost blind. In this video he explains “what it’s like to be me” as part of an Emmy Award winning collection of short documentary portraits, featuring kids with a variety of medical conditions.

Audrey Louise Reynolds studied painting, photography, and film, while working as a cook, and her interests in all those areas sort of meshed together as she started to hand dye fabrics. New York Times called her “the fashion world’s artisanal fabric dyer” and The Selby recently followed her around as she created some of her work. Watch the video below.
The latest episode of the interview series “Like Knows Like” features New York-based illustrator Victo Ngai. I’ve followed her work for awhile so it was great to hear her talk about her work (and sing some Backstreet Boys). If you missed it, I previously posted Victo’s work here and here.

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.
