While hanging around in my studio during Culture Crawl this past weekend I decided to work on a few gel pen drawings so visitors could see how I work. The first one I started sold before I could even finish it because someone liked it as it was, and I was okay with the drawing’s unfinished state. I was happy a few of these doodles found new homes on the weekend because they’ve been an experiment for me.

The circular one pictured here is the second of these drawings I began over the weekend, but wasn’t able to get very far with it until yesterday. I like making shapes with these doodles, and this one in particular resembles the twinkling crystalized surface of a planet.

The second drawing is one I’d originally created for the show I have up at Kafka, but there wasn’t room for it in the end. It was an experiment in exploring a shape other than a circle.

I really want to clear out the backlog of inventory, including owl altered books, and a few paper cut pieces from last year. Use the coupon code STUDIOSALE2014 to get the discount at checkout.

On Friday I dropped into Gam Gallery to check out their latest show, Paper Presents. I have two layered paper pieces in the show amongst all the other terrific work by Vancouver artists such as Ola Volo, Sean Karemaker, Sarah Clement and many more.

The official opening for the show is this Friday November 28th, 7pm until late. It’s a good place to pick up handmade local art for Christmas gifts.

I’ve been doing a four day countdown over on Instagram leading up to the Eastside Culture Crawl, and there is one more day to go. It begins tomorrow and continues until Sunday.

One more day!!!

This is my fifth year taking part in the crawl as an exhibiting artist. I’ve already decided to take a break next year because I miss touring other studios, so if you’ve never been by before now’s the best time to visit.

The Crawl has been extended from three days to four this year, and I’m curious to see whether more people take advantage of the extra day. I have my fingers crossed for decent weather despite the less than promising weather report.

Visit me at 1660 East Georgia Street to see intricate paper cut work, laser cut pieces, and installations. I have an event page on Facebook if you would like to RSVP »
