Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

Illustrated Journey Exhibition

This is a repost of an entry I wrote on www.illustratedjourney.ca:

A big thank you to all who came out to the Illustrated Journey Youth Project exhibition last Saturday! We had such a fantastic time celebrating the comics that we created and it was definitely rewarding to share them with you all. Thanks to all the youth for the laughter, the stories and the friendships! Keep on drawing and storytelling!

What a beautiful day for an exhibition. Pear, Dergie and Jordon made some wonderful speeches!

We made even more comics at the comic making table. Los Castorcitos performed for us too.

If you have any stories or photos to share from the exhibition, or would like a copy of our comic book by donation, please write to illustratedjourney@gmail.com

Every year, our studio sends an end of season gift to our clients in Boston. This year I was asked to make plushies of our Fetch characters: Ruff Ruffman, Blossom and Chet. They finally received them in the mail today so I can now post them to show you!

Some more pictures :)

For our last Illustrated Journey Youth Project session for the summer, we had a bbq at Kitsilano beach. We ate lots of food, played ball, did handstands, jumped around and had a sunny day of fun.

This summer I have been involved with The Illustrated Journey Youth Project, where I help newly immigrated and/or refugee kids draw and make a comic of their journey to Canada. After three months, the kids have now completed their comics and we are publishing them into a book and presenting their artwork in an exhibition. If you are in the area, please feel free to visit us at the youth exhibition! ;)

If you'd like to come for a preview of the comic and meet the kids from past and present projects, we will have a booth at Vancouver's Comicon this Sunday, Sept 13th from 11-5pm.

Here is another invite and more information, about the project if you'd like to forward it to your friends. Designed and illustrated by me :)
