Guelph Night Market

Guelph Night Market happened back in October and was an incredible success! Thousands of people circulated through a small room in downtown Guelph sifting through vintage clothes, baked goods, original art, magical gemstones and much more! I was there with my screen prints and though I felt mildly claustrophobic, I couldn't have been happier with the turnout.  Many thanks to Theresa, Emily and many others for organising such a great event.  

It was packed to the brim all night!
Lots of hands in my patch pile!
I've heard whispers of another Night Market happening in February, but I'll keep you posted!

Graven Feather Letterpress Prints

Graven Feather is a lovely gallery & print studio in Toronto and they recently printed a limited edition series of letterpress prints showcasing the art of 7 artists and illustrators.  Below is the design I submitted for the series which is available for purchase through Graven Feather or my Etsy store.

Limited edition letterpress print 'Blue Garden' 2015

Below is another illustration I made for an event that Graven Feather took part in called Surface.  Again, the design was turned into a polymer plate and hand printed by Pam & Erin at Graven Feather. 

'Snake Face' letterpress print 2015

I also used the Snake Face illustration to screenprint on some tote bags which can be purchased here.

Survival Guide

I was lucky enough to be asked to design the cover and twelve spot illustrations for the University of Guelph's annual survival guide.  Can't go wrong with teal and orange!
