Leslie & The Badgers

March 11th, 2010 · Comments Off

My co-worker Kevin (@kevinguenther) introduced me to the Black Harbor this morning, a “collective exploration of Art & Design”, where he discovered the oh-so-lovely Leslie & The Badgers, as showcased above.  A nice way to start the day! Leslie reminds me a little of another of my female singer-songwriter heart throbs, Jenny Lewis, seen here […]

Le Tour

July 14th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’m a cycling fan. This show looks like a wonderful display of work by photographer Brent Humphreys, with show art direction & design by http://www.weaponofchoice.ca/. Wish I could find myself in Austin. Lance Armstrong and his team seem to have really embraced art & design as they mature the Livestrong brand. I’ll get behind any […]

Agassiz Ice

August 28th, 2008 · Comments Off

This new sculpture by Gordon Reeve was just installed. Lucky for me, it’s directly across the street from my office, in Assiniboine Park. So I dodged the morning rush hour yesterday and captured a few shots. I famously (not) dropped out of Gordon’s sculpture class way back when I attended the University of Manitoba. It […]
