27 Waldos

Not too long ago Islands Fold proposed the idea of a collection of artists each creating their own unique version of Waldo (or Wally depending on your location). The artists would also imagine an environment for him to hide in. Somehow this amazing idea was rejected by the company who owns the rights. What a colossal mistake!

Can you tell who drew each of these? See a full artist list below!

JOSH HOLINATY INTERVIEW

Josh Holinaty artist interview

I think I could live in Edmonton if summer lasted from January until December, how do you like living there?

It’s great, really. Aside from the long winter, out summer is incredibly beautiful. The river valley, the music fests, etc. Also, there is an incredible arts scene here that is hyper embracing. Everyone – from art, music, burlesque, film – just hangs out all the time. Everyone is always in a state of collaboration in a very DIY sense. There’s a stigma that Edmonton has ‘no scene’ because it doesn’t have a full on art college or something like that. But in the end it only drives people really hard to want to do their own thing – and the results are obvious. Zines. Garage rock. Public Art. In the past few years there’s been a serious blossoming in this town.

Booooooom x Poketo

It’s been hard to keep this a secret, but it is a secret no more! I have joined forces with my friends at Poketo to release a collection of wallets designed by four Canadian artists!

Booooooom x Poketo collaboration Afterlife Wallet Series

Several months ago I asked Andrea Wan, Winnie Truong, Josh Holinaty, and Howie Tsui to each create images based on their interpretation of the “After Life”. What happens to us after we die?

Over the next couple weeks I will be posting an interview with each artist to give you some more insight into their work and will end each interview by giving away one of our wallets!

If you’d like to purchase a wallet (or four) jump over here.

Take a closer look at the wallets below!
