One of my first forays into hand-embroidery, since I was a young child sewing alongside my grandmother. The stitching bug is back and, apparently, hereditary.
This piece was created for a show entitled 44 Obamas, at the former Barbershop Gallery

As The Spirit Wanes The Form Appears

A typographic interpretation of Charles Bukowski's poem, ART, realized on blackboard.

Every few months, the folks at GRAND Creative let an artist in to muss up their studio's blackboard. Past guest artists include Graham Roumieu and Clayton Hanmer. Luke Canning, the shop's Creative Director, wanted to go typographical this time around. I did my best to appease. Here is a selection of shots from the evening, documented by photographer Dave Katulic


Evelyn Kasikov's CMYK Alphabet is an amazing feat of embroidery, colour, form and typography.
See the alphabet and process here, but don't stop at that; her other projects and sketchbooks are wonders in and of themselves.
Major kudos.

Here's a wonderful campaign I'm involved with for COUGAR Boots, a homegrown Canadian family-biz done right.
They are launching a much-anticipated campaign across all media platforms, and I have the pleasure of creating the hand type for them and the great folks at GJP. Look for more ads here and across Canada as they roll out.
