fringe festival


(click the image to view the close up)

the fringe festival has begun! from august 3rd to 13th, there’ll be performances, shops with original art and lots of fun. i’ll be busking on broadway avenue again this year. i don’t have many tricks to show you, but i’ll be showing some prints and small originals and they’ll be for sale. i’ll bring the spencer book too :)

my two original drawings (the one above and this) are shown at off broadway theater for fringe optix exhibition. they’re both for sale. there’ll be more of beautiful artworks by local artists. so go check it out.

last year, i was busking for the first time. it was just a month after paul and i moved to saskatoon. i didn’t know anybody. so it was nice to meet new people. i met many talented artists. it was tamara bond who dropped by at my booth, suggesting to contact phonographique for a show. i also met felt birds! (their fashion is awesome. i’m looking forward to seeing their new works.) i met so many friendly locals that i felt like i was already a part of the community. it was so much fun. it looks like there’ll be a lot of talented local artists again this year. so come on down to broadway avenue and have fun!

    wow. I can’t believe you’re self taught. I’m amazed. your stuff reminds me of the strangeness of James Jean’s works (and he’s super famous and went to a super awesome art school). I know you said today at the fringe that you haven’t heard of him, so you should check out his stuff at http://processrecess.com/ or http://www.jamesjean.com/ (or http://www.jjeanius.net but this one is just a fan site) It was great to meet you today. I’m now a huge fan of yours. keep up the good work.
