Trading Places

As male in a small-town arts community, I’m an unlikely minority. At any given artists’ gathering I’m often one of few men, and I’m invariably surrounded by creative, talented, competent, hard-working, and knowledgeable women.

Passwords

We tend to think that complexity is what makes a good password, but we don’t really understand complexity. We think if it looks more complicated then it must be better, but entropy is a better measurement of difficulty in guessing than complexity.

Love at a Funeral

I met Lenore Rosgen when I was working at Riverside Value Drug Mart in Drumheller, Alberta, where I grew up. She was always quick with a funny jab or a sweet smile. She often accompanied her husband Richard who was on oxygen at the time, a charming gentleman farmer not far from town.

Hard Times in Bad Lands

A few years ago I borrowed a friend’s car for a road trip. As I wound my way up the Kootenay Pass, the only music available was a stack of unmarked, burned CDs jammed between the seats. As I cycled through those discs each new track was an adventure.

Kelty Pelechtyik

I have always been obsessed with rare, beautiful objects that tell a story. Things that people value and that withstand time, that are passed on to be cherished and adored. It’s at the heart of what I love about jewellery: composing a final, unique piece of art for someone to love forever.

February 2020 Astrology

In this holographic Universe, some may recognize the old adage that our reality is mimicked back to us based upon the energy we exude. In this enlightened state, man has the ability to co-create his reality through self-mastery. Transcendental experience is something we are never without, however one must recognize themselves first to do great work.

Freakin’ Streakin’

Knowing Mike Bull is a lot like arriving at an amusement park with an unlimited amount of ride tickets clenched tightly in your sweaty palm. It’s thrilling, wild, and full to the brim with unadulterated joy.

Streaking for Art’s Sake

I love my creative life—I wake up in the morning, make coffee, help the kids out the door to school, and at that moment the routine in my life ends. For the rest of the day, I could be setting some type for a new poster, carving a block for a print commission, working on paintings for a solo show, or putting together an application for a future public art call.

Brina Schenk and The Proud Art Post

There are a few moments and experiences that have lead Brina Schenk to where she is right now. It feels serendipitous as if there’s nothing else she should be doing.

January 2020 Astrology

There is a special energy that happens at the change of the year, every year, providing a blank slate and a fresh optimistic start. There is no doubt in my mind that this is why the Gregorian Calendar marks this time of year as the ‘new year.’

Mountain Reads

Beach reads? Nah. They’re about as satisfying as Tic Tacs. Mountain reads are the sticky-toffee-pudding of books. Deep, dark, and full of substance.
