UC Quarterly

What a lovely surprise in the mail today...

My 2014 hand-lettered calendar was featured in the gorgeous print edition of UC Quarterly.

And then a few pages later, my hand-painted signs!

Thanks again to my dear friend Tanya for snapping these great flat photos of my signs.

Check out more great photos of this issue over on FPO.

Thank you Armin for this great opportunity!

Let's help kids go to camp!

One month from today (exactly!) I will be participating in the Sporting Life 10k Run. On Sunday, May 11, I'll be running down Yonge Street to help kids with cancer go to camp. Last year, through the generosity of family and friends (old and new), I raised an astounding $1260. I am still amazed, and immensely grateful. Let's see if we can do even better this year!

If you can spare a few dollars, please donate what you can on this fundraising page:


As further encouragement, for every online donation over $50, you will be eligible for a free limited edition art print I will be creating in the next 2 months. Details to come...

And if money is tight, I will gladly accept all donations of encouragement - I'm going to need it.

Thank you in advance. Have a great weekend!

You are my joy.

I am so excited to share this special birthday commission I created for my dear Calgary friend, Kathleen. Her hubby, Terry, contacted me back in mid-February to see if I'd be interested in doing a hand-lettered lino print with the phrase "You are my joy" in Kath's favourite colours: yellow and silver.

After a few rounds of brush pen work (above), we settled on the final style and layout. Then, with some patience and a steady hand, I carefully carved the two 12" x 12" linos.

Here are some shots of the final piece.

Kath: I hope your birthday was extra special this year, and that this print brings you joy for many years to come.

Influence Magazine

Here is some custom chalkboard-style lettering I recently created for the front and back cover of Influence Magazine.

Thanks again to Sharon for this amazing opportunity!
