Crownfarmer

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to design a tee for Crownfarmer, and it was just released yesterday! My design is called “How a bird becomes a ghost”. If you have some pocket money grab yourself a tee, while you can!

Keep your eye on Crownfarmer, every week a new artist is revealed! Artists previously revealed: Andrew Pommier, Tony Larson, Todd Bratrud, and Matt Irving (still not sure how I weaseled my way in with this crowd).

PS – There’s a mini interview with me over on Club Mumble.

20×200 Guest Curator!

Jen Bekman asked if I’d like to guest curate 20×200 and I jumped at the opportunity! Head over there to get a good look at my selections and there’s a little interview too!

My Pecha Kucha!

As promised, here is my presentation at Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver. I was a bit nervous as I don’t normally speak in front of 500+ people and it was tricky to do it without any control over the slides but I survived!

Pecha Kucha Vancouver!

Tickets for Pecha Kucha Vancouver (May 21 – 7pm) are now available online!!! I will be speaking there along with eleven other people including designer Marian Bantjes! I listened to her speak at Justified West and I could feel previously unused parts of my brain coming alive. You do not want to miss this! Tickets are only $10 and they will sell out. Get them here.

If you don’t already know about Pecha Kucha, each speaker shows 20 slides for 20 seconds, and there is no pausing or reviewing of slides. So if someone is boring they are only boring for 400 seconds. Show up early and you get free booze. Feel free to bring tomatoes to throw at me – I was hoping I could go first and get it over with but it appears I am last so the pressure is on!

Method grabs at midnight!

Last weekend my friend Dean and I shot this masterpiece during Grouse Mountain’s Valentine’s Day All-Nighter. I thought it would be funny to ride my snowboard from 10 years ago (it’s a 140!) and Dean brought some celebratory cigars so we could look “cool”. We shot all this footage between midnight and 5AM with like a 1-megapixel camera! Watch for the flat-land methods!

Oh, and the Livestock x Converse x Product(RED) event was a total success! Thanks to the hundreds of you who journeyed out to say hello! I’ll hopefully have photos from the event by Monday!
