back to style


If you've been seeing my picture around Calgary lately it's not a doppelganger. During the summer I was selected to be a part of the "Back to Style" campaign Downtown Calgary put on during September, which is now wrapping up.
You can take a look at a short post about me on the downtown Calgary blog here.

UPDATE: Aldona taps into my style and shares some nice words about me here.

A couple gratuitous pictures of myself below that have been sent to me over the past month.

keepin' it sleazy august and september

I've neglected to post the past  Keepin' it Sleezys over the last couple of months, but I am still illustrating the sex column every month. Read them and see my illustrations in the links below:

September, about that book 50 Shades of Grey everyone has been talking about.

August, some weird sex related trivia.

oxfam's club night for a cause

Oxfam is a great organization, and one that I got involved with a bit at the beginning of the year. They focus on helping to abolish poverty and improve equality, and sustainability of communities, especially in Americas, the Horn of Africa, Southern Africa and South Asia areas.

Above is a poster I created for the "Club Night For A Cause" event, which will be held at Commonwealth on September 27th, all proceeds will be going towards Oxfam's work on the drought crisis in the Sahel region of West Africa.

If you're not able to attend, but are interested in being involved with Oxfam in the future take a look here or if you want to know when the next meeting for Oxfam Calgary is you can contact me and I will have you added to the mailing list. If you are just interested in hearing more about the organization take a look on the Oxfam Canada site here.

Here are two new shirt designs for The Suppliers which I created graphics for. You will be able to pick up both shirts at Dicken's tomorrow at The Suppliers album release show.

a savvy start

Here is my FFWD illustration for this week. A Calgary based program teaches students how to cook, something that would have probably saved me from my all starch diet in University (kraft dinner, ichiban, perogees, grilled cheese sandwich, repeat). With that said I learned how to make the best grilled cheese sandwiches on the block!
