My friend Kim England just opened up a new cafe on Lansdowne near Wallace. When I stopped by to congratulate her, she pointed to a blank wall and asked me to fill it.
Nine gouache-on-paper drawings from my Shanghai Scooters series are on display at Hello Darling until the end of January. These drawings of the Chinese city’s people and transportation are witty and eye-opening. All pieces are framed and are priced between $200 – $250.

If you’ve been following along for the past month, you’ve seen the progress that Christine and I have made with our Fun-A-Day projects. When we picked February as a good month to try creating art every day, it was one big bald spot on the calendar. By the end of the month, we had made a last minute trip to Ottawa to skate on the Rideau Canal, and hosted friends from NYC who decided to visit at the last minute. Time got pretty chewed up.
Despite that, Christine has completed 24 of her planned “28 Clowns Later”. She’ll likely be done the project by Monday. I’ll post again when she’s done.
As for my “Power Portraits 1965-1989”, I found the time to complete just 16 drawings. That said, they are broader in both style and subjects than I initially intended. I will do more in March, but impending deadlines for two art exhibits may slow me down.
