So it has come to my attention that there are studio spaces available on Murray St. right in the market! The rent is by square ft and the one that my friend and I want to rent out is 350/month :. 175/person/month. Fucking sweet eh? Two professors from my school already have claimed spaces and the one I want is still available and I’m looking to shotgun it tonight once I hear back from my...
Follow wanderingthrough.ca– He’s adorable!!! Edit: This fine young chap may have stolen my phone and written that himself, but he really is quite adorable.
I’m taking summer school for the first time since starting university and, man, I don’t know how I feel about it!! It’s so frustrating because it’s sooo easy but if I don’t do well I’ll feel so awful haha. I’ve sacrificed my social life so I could study for this midterm and It’s all fucking memorizing. My professor said that the exam will literally...
for you i’d bleed myself dry I remember...
Okay, so lately I’ve been trying to be all zen and stuff… but I’m really not feelin’ it. Something about right now… I don’t know what it is but I’m really stressed out. Actually, I know exactly what it is. Comfort zones. All about the comfort zones. There have been a lot of changes that I’ve been going through. Just growing up stuff but changes...
Canon Digital rebel xsi
My goal this summer is to learn everything I can about my camera. I’ve had it for a while but never really explored it. Now that I’m done school and my paintings are at a halt, I actually have time to play with my Rebel!

It. Hurt. A. Lot. Hard at work. Meet Rob! Swelling begins Sam was great for my Moral Support Crew Hahahaha sooooo big! It’s never really been that bad before…. Like, ever. But this was a touchy spot. As was my inner upper arm. In fact, I started to feel a little light-headed. I need to prep more before tattoo appts because I think I should have eaten a bit more in the...
[Edited] Last tattoo sesh! (of the summer that is)
Tomorrow I get to go into The Ink Spot (on Bank and Gladstone) to get tattooed from 1PM-5PM! How exciting! It’s been two months since my last session. Although I didn’t choose to be scheduled for 4 hours (I had my friend Nick book me in and apparently that day and that amount of time was the perfect spot for a tattoo my size..) I’m glad I’ll get a huge chunk. Why? Because I...
Don't tell mom
So in a previous post I showed Ron Terada’s neon sign piece that was displayed in the National Art Gallery’s Biennial exhibition. As I had expressed in that post, I said that the quote “It is what it is” and “It was what it was” would make a neat tattoo.. Well after debate on where to get it…. I had Mariah (a tattoo artist from Rhode Island) draw me up...
Mange (like the french do)
Indulging with our pal, gluttony at Dunn’s. Classic. Shes cool. Gourmet, obvs. THAT’s A PILE OF SALMON!
I did mah nailz. Cheap, cheap, cheeeap ass Sally Hansen “Jade Jump” (I would have been content with “Jade”) on sale for $3.99 at your local Shoppers Drug Mart! Fetch! I don’t normally do this but… I did my toes too.

So Vintage (The Invitational Contd)
Vintage clothing and my beautiful friends. What more could I ever ask for in life?
Creations (The Invitational Contd)
Top two photos are of the creations from the lovely Cleo S-P The last photo is a wonderful display of jewelry manufactured by Jaimie Howard
I had the privilege of attending an event called The Invitational at Ritual night club in Ottawa. Some amazing talent was featured there ranging from clothing/jewelry design to fine art. It was a lot of fun! More funness to come!
… to paint. I need to. Badly. Deeply. You know, though, when you haven’t done something in a long time and you’re scared to start because you’re either A) afraid you’re going to suck or B) afraid that what you’re making isn’t turning out the way you want and then, because of that, you feel like you suck? Like for example. This is why I don’t like...
Just Keep Drawing
So now i’m playing around with this whole style of fashion illustration. Trying to learn where focal points should be and when to just friggen stop drawing! It’s so hard to just not draw every little detail and to pick and choose what to emphasize and what to leave alone. At first I was using ink (for previous sketches which I shall post in a bit) but I just got too impatient...
I promised myself and a very respected coworker that I would toughen up. So, I shall commence the growing process. (Artwork entitled Balls by Susan Porteous. Yes, it is art)
David Downtown: Fantastic fashion illustrator. I’ve been eyeing his artistic goodies for a long time and just got the chance to sneak a peek in his book. It’s a collabo of a lot of different influential fashion illustrators. At the end is an interview with him and about 10 pgs of his own works? Sparse, but it is a good reference for big names in this part of the fashion...

Wha- BAM! I wanted Ombre with a more of a punk-rock feel to it. I will admit, It was a shock… But I very very very much love it now. I can’t wait to play with it and my wardrobe and maybe even mess around with different shades of blonde. Low-lights, Hi-lights, I can do it all! I wonder how the men will respond to this… I can’t decide if this look is more boy-hot or...

FINALLY ACCESS TO MY LAPTOP
So funny story…. My friend Ryan and I have been pals for a long time. He’s always traveling and is never in the same place for like, more than a month unless he’s at school or tolerating Ottawa. So finally he got back from K-town and we were going out for din-din at Play before he left for Guyana the next day… A few drinks later we order our last meal which is the...
The Great Move (part 1)
