I am a White settler standing up to 400 years of colonial violence that my European ancestors have caused to indigenous people across #kkkanada
I will not ignore this issue until the RCMP stand down. I will stand alongside thousands of land defenders and rights protectors screaming NO CONSENT. Pipelines do not belong in native land. -

My contribution of @flavourcel β€˜s public animation installation hosted by @gruntgallery. It is currently being projected on the @mtpleasant_artscreen just on the side of the new Kingsway highrise. Public art displays have a long history of masking gentrification, so it was interesting to try our best as a collective to figure out what content would highlight the Vancouver housing crisis yet still appeal to the privileged folk who are in charge of running the art screen. Lots to think about here, but I’m glad I took the opportunity. It’s wild to see my work on such a large scale! -

This is my part for @devours.ufo β€˜s music video for Garnet Graves (album: Iconoclast) which premiered just about a month ago. This was a massive and tedious project @flavourcel took on! I learned a lot about collaboration and the uplifting of fellow friends & animators that I never got since I dropped out of art school so early. I also learned how to take criticism and turn it into better work. It turns out you can still do what you love outside of school and benefit hugely from it πŸ₯° I couldn’t have asked more than having Flavourcel in my life. 2019 has been so wholesome and rewarding and I couldn’t have done it without my friends πŸ’•πŸ’– Thank you!! -

Around this time last year I was living at my parent's home on the island; eating away slowly at their fancy cheese stash while they were on vacation. I was busy trying to conceptualize what future might come as I meditated by drawing and journeying around the snowy forests. After a few weeks of sobriety I finally started to understand how time could move without leaving me behind. Although my heart tends to want to live in more rural patches of heaven, I am fortunate and comfortable back in the city. I hope to eat the same amount of midway-fancy cheese this year, except this time I will do so in the presence of better company! πŸ’› -
