remember this image from before? while not the final draft of the poster i am happy enough with it to let you have a look. maybe you want to attend one of the workshops?
I was walking home from the election polls today when i saw your beautiful grapes! I want to offer you help in harvesting them, if you would like or need help. [give me a call if yes]
I live up the street, with a family of 6. Last year we processed a few hundred pounds of saurkraut! I am also an artist so I made you this card. If you already have plans for your grapes you can ignore this note.
Happy thanksgiving, and happy harvest!
background is that we’ve had our first hard frost, & expecting another this evening. Leaves have mostly dropped, showing off remainder fruit hanging ready on trees and vines around the hood.
I’ve heard leaving grapes on the vine for a frost ups the sugar content? but if they are left too long after a frost they will rot on the vine. Also, that the sugar content of grapes actually prevents them from freezing at temperatures that cause the leaves to freeze and fall. Anyhoo… i’d like to save these grapes from rotting, so i dropped off this card and note for the residents (who look like they’ve been away for at least a week).
i wish i could use what you’ve got!
Lucky me, i was invited to create a poster for Starhawk’s visit to Vancouver! What I’ve got now is a sore butt from sitting at my computer for 1+ days. I made black and white version of this poster, plus a two-sided handbill as well.
Reminds me that I’ve made so many posters which i like that are not documented in a central area. Plans to create a side page here to collect them into one place.
Use what you’ve got, and i’ve got a rad computer and photoshop.
Left to right: Crow, Wolverine, Owl, Goblin, Squid (aka Octipii Vancouver), Jester, and Zoro’s cousin the lightening tamer. I am including this as my creative endeavour for the day, as I put together the Owl costume in a few minutes before we went out, after spending the day finishing previous projects and completing previous posts on this blog.
woo woo, woo woo, woo woo-aaaaah, says Owl.
A project i am coordinating & facilitating: a memorial installation for a cycling advocate who passed unexpectedly. This is the bare-bones invitation to participate in a design gathering, where we’ill chew on the project together. Will the memorial installation appear as a future post?
(This flyer is incomplete.)
On the other side these tokens say: “i will cook food for you”
I made these tokens as an effort to stimulate supportive community. I was heading down to the Occupy Vancouver site, and anticipated being around many people who i had never met. My intention was to strike up a conversation with folks, talk about my art project, and ask them:
“would you be willing to cook food for someone in the next two weeks?”
If willing then i would give my new acquaintance a radiating heart token as a reminder of their inspiration to support another person.
Use what you got.
