April turns to May

Things are going full bore in the shop. Been making up bookmarks and printing bags and envelopes.
My supplies of letterpress infrastructure have been dwindling of late, and what with Wayzgoose and Focus Fair on the near horizon, i though it best to catch up.

Just took off the plastic from the windows and last night, was actually working with the door ajar. The weather is my good, spring friend.
It’s so nice to not be chilled all the time. Granted, the heater i installed has brought the overall temp up about 10 degrees, it’s still rather
fresh on cold winter nights.

Also, working on a poster for local music group The Spades. It’s a souvenir poster of the spring/summer cross Canada tour.
They are opening for Matthew Good. Check them out at The Spades. It’s going to be cool.
Just carved the block for the main graphic last night – a big tiger head with his tongue hanging out and a “spade” on it. Kinda like an ode
to The Rolling Stones and acid i guess. Anyway, i hope to get the first colour down tonight and over the weekend
and go from there. Three passes likely.

So, two weeks from tomorrow – April 26th to be exact, is the big day – the 30th Annual Wayzgoose at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery.
Check out the website and be sure to come on out and support traditional books, book artists and small press artists from
across Ontario and the Northern States.

Also, Focus Fair picks up steam over the coming weeks, with our first group show and sale since Valentines.
Come on out and see some great local arts and crafts. The show is May 10th, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Here is a link to the PAU for directions and such.

I am promising to shoot pics as i work through the spades poster – and will post as they become available.

Hope to see you out at an upcoming event.





  1. Hey Jeff,
    I saw the Spades ad in Exclaim featuring your work and I thought I would drop you a line and say congrats! It looks wonderful!
    I hope you’re well.
