This is awesome. Vancouver’s Guelph Park is now Dude Chilling Park. Not officially though, The Province reports that the official park sign was secretly replaced by someone “who put a lot of effort into crafting the counterfeit, which even features the official Vancouver Parks and Recreation crest”.
The artist responsible is Viktor Briestensky. I really hope they don’t remove it like they say they will. It is harmless and hilarious.
*Edit – There’s a petition you can sign to show your support, here.
Ahhh! (that was a girlish scream not the sound of me relaxing) I’m speaking today at Creative Mornings.
Apologies to everyone who was unable to get tickets, I was told they sold out extremely fast and unfortunately the venue is quite small. I will let you know how it goes! If you managed to get tickets please come up and say hi afterwards!
Wish me luck!
The main reason I am doing this talk is because I am making a conscious effort to pursue everything that I am afraid of. I will be talking about aliens, and the 1996 blockbuster film “The Rock”. There is a possibility I will never speak publicly again.
Short interview on Creative Mornings/Van Tumblr: HERE.
Tix for my talk go on sale on Monday (they are free): HERE.
My friend Corey Adams (the same Corey I made this with) has organized an art show where artists will re-interpret the iconic Manwolfs jean jackets. If you’re from Vancouver you probably know the Manwolfs, if not watch this and this and then refer to the image below.
Artists like Michael Hsiung, Andrew Pommier, Jeremy Fish and even skate legend Natas Kaupas have been sent jackets to customize. It’s gonna be a rowdy one, I’m sure someone will be donutting a motorcycle in the gallery by the time I get there!
