Where did the summer go?

Well, if you’re like me, you feel like the summer went by in lightening speed.

While we didn’t get our normal quota of canoe tripping in, we did get out for 4 days mid-August and also a couple car camping weekends were fit in there as well. Silent Lake was nice, but i’d have to pass on Bass Lake if asked to go again.

Saw radiohead for the fourth time, and while the show was a bit more mellow than i am used to, i will still in awe throughout the show. Thom Yorke is so enigmatic, and the whole sound this band creates is very compelling. Stood at the foot of the stage at the Toronto show – scored awesome tickets through W.A.S.T.E.

On the printing side, i’ve been pretty busy – i have new prints of Douglas Coupland, Cory Doctorow while helps to fill out my collection of Canadian Icons in Print. Both are quite fun. See pics below.

Also worked up a couple of cool garden based prints – one based on Hosta’s and the other inspired by a lovely white Iris which bloomed in the front yard this year. Also pics below.

I was contacted by a local couple to print invitations/posters for their wedding, which they were having at the Gordon Best Theatre on New Years Eve upcoming. Pics of that will go up here over the next couple days.
