I am definitely not much of a shutter bug... But, I am addicted to GIFS right now, so this drives a lot of my camera activity. Here's some of what I brought back from my vay-kay to British Columbia (Vancouver and Points Interior).
A sweet little seven year old girl, a part of my kind Kamloopian host family, did a bunch of tracings of one of my older prints. They were Picasso-esque, so here they are.
And finally, someone taking better photos than me.

|From my Instagram feed. Look for Stirlbot.|
And then, other interviews? Well, yes. Today, I raced across town from the library where I worked for an interview with a kind (and lightspeed note taker) journo from Metro News. Lesson this interview taught me? Pace myself and no sense rambling about everything, if the poor guy can't keep up. Anyways, hopefully this will be out soon.
Wolfe Island Music Festival is a confirmed go. Watch out Kingston!
Right now, thanks to the Curious Collective, I'm contributing to the general ambiance (pronounced "am-bee-aaanse") of the Ottawa Jazz Festival. Come by Canada Day for free concerts (Hooded Fang!) and check their tent out.
Don't forget to check out the Facebook page... updates happen there fast as fast can be. And, as usual, you're welcome to peruse my online store.

|Time to throw off some of the work!|
Well, the Winged Beast is a creative project, and I need a break from show/market prep to recharge and focus on some other things. Like what? Why ART of course!
Not to mention, that at some point, the fall will come around, and I want to have some gooderific and novel things to show off. So, I'm gonna buckle down, alternate iced coffee and beer, and let the magic happen. Well not exactly, but there will be a mix of work and fun, that's for sure.
But don't worry. The Winged Beast isn't totally closed. In Ottawa, I will be putting in place a couple consignment opportunities - i.e. look for my stuff at Ottawa Jazz Festival, thanks to the Curious Collective. I also have my on Wolfe Island in August... more details etc. will come in their time.
And, as always, you can shop at my etsy store.

|Summer demands my show tent and lounging in the sun or shade.|
Ravenswing DIY Fair
Sunday, May 27th, 11am to 4pm.
Minto Park (on Elgin).
Sandy Hill Spring Fair
Saturday, June 2nd, 9am to 3pm.
All Saints Church (corner of Blackburn and Laurier)
June 16th, I'll be down on Preston Street, as part of or adjacent to Italian Week of Ottawa (That's all I know at this point...). You'll know more when I do, of course.
You may also find me down at the Glebe Garage Sale on May 26th if a) the weather's good and b) my birthday is not too, too fun.
I'll be taking a break in July to take breaks and work on some other things (like taking breaks!)
August? Well, I'm hoping to go back to the Wolfe Island Music Festival. Tickets are apparently flying off the virtual shelves, so hurry up!
And as usual, you're welcome to peruse my online store. There are new prints, FYI.

The GCTC, Holland & Wellington Free Admission!
Ottawa is lucky because I'll be showcasing some new shirts and skirts, which are very much way better than my grainy smartphone pic suggest...
All these shows in a row at Urban Craft have been forcing me to keep rolling new stuff out. To help with showing it off, I'll also be showcasing a new display rack for my kids clothes. I am making it out of materials scavenged from the construction site next store! More to come on that.
And finally, I am practicing my hand at doing paper prints. I'm not deft, ye... but watch out for hangable/frameable prints this fall!

I've been doing Urban Craft the last few months. It's Ottawa's only monthly Maker/Craftster market. It's been pretty great. The next one is May 5.
I've made new Beware the Squid Menace shirts and added kid's sizes to the line up.
I'm working on my summer show schedule. Life at the public library may keep me in the Ottawa region, but worldwide people who need a fix can still go to my Etsy store.
I also went to Paris (for the first time ever!). It was spectacular and I took about 776 photos (mostly of graffiti and of cats). Some of this massive wad of pics are for a project I'm hoping to have done in June. More on that will be announce later.
In other news, I have my first ever interview next Friday. The good people at Apt. 613 are going to shine their light on me. This, I believe to be awesome.
And, as usual I'm always working on images and ideas and keeping things tight at the ol'OPL.

Thanks, Ottawa! You've made this a pretty bangin' Fall/Winter season!
The Winged Beast will rest soon... there is still time to get your last minute holiday orders in! But you will have to be fast.
Looking forward to 2012!
