cartoon life: London’s vision prescription eyeglasses

Both Federal and Provincial governments are encouraging transit systems to move to electrical Light Rail Rapid Transit systems, as opposed to motor driven buses. They are providing grants of large amounts of money. Arguments in favour of Light Rail are rational, thorough, economical and farsighted. London city council voted to support only a locally, minuscule-y […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: London’s vision prescription eyeglasses

cartoon life: Pre-Order ‘Hey Wendy Watch This!’

You might not believe that these stories are true but they are! Life was full of remarkable adventure as Deb grew up East of Adelaide from 1955 to 1974. The book covers neighbourhood and school-time stories from EOA, Lorne Avenue School and Beck Collegiate. There are humourous stories and some not so humourous. My sister’s book recounts her adventures […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Pre-Order ‘Hey Wendy Watch This!’

cartoon life: My stolen bike #ldnont

This is my freshly stolen bike. Some one for whom I have no polite words walked into my garage, removed the obviously unsanitary water bottle and took my bike. Why would anyone want to steal their grandfather’s bike is beyond me. Bronze and black Trek 300 hybrid mountain street bike. New tires. New chain. New […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: My stolen bike #ldnont

ezra winton: 20 Questions for Film Curators

This past winter I taught a graduate seminar course at Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema (Concordia University) entitled “Curatorial Labour and the Politics of Programming.” It was a fantastic and meaningful experience and I was fortunate enough to have 13 really great students, all of whom suffered along with me as I attempted to make sense of my overly-ambitious and brand new syllabus.

cartoon life: Odd tuxedo on green

A Matisse-like cubism. Made with the earlier version of Tayasui Sketches. The new version has some interesting new brushes, and as I was browsing the gallery I noticed this, which seems a bit more interesting than when I did it. I don’t pop into Sketches very often. Like most of the other painting apps, it seems […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Odd tuxedo on green

cartoon life: Black cat on the floor

Auryn ink watercolour direct brutal drawing and scrubbing away at erasing. I wish the app had a more sensitive eraser, sponge, or tissue mode to erase or pick up too much colour. Update: in the interim, the developer of Auryn Ink has indeed added a more sensitive softer eraser option. Very nice.Filed under: art . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Black cat on the floor
