Remember this post? (Looking back to a year ago, my writing style has really improved!) Almost all the photos in the post are broken. I accidentally deleted all my blog photos three monthes after starting my blog. The things you learn not to do along the way!
Anyways, it happened again. And this time, I was in it! My school’s annual art showcase- featuring MY sketchbook, MY tonal drawing and MY watercolour LEGO! Exclamation marks! Wait hold…my phone just rang. Narcissus called. He wanted his ego back.
On a more serious note, it felt really good to see your hard work pay off and hang in a gallery.
There’s my LEGO! Final finished piece on top, practice strip on bottom.
There’s my sketchbook (on the left)! Displayed against my best bud on the tip of my tongue (pun intended)’s sketchbook.
Why did I scoop bathroom hair from your shower and put it on paper, you ask? Not to worry, it’s 100% plastic fiber! Half of my face is somewhere in the mix too. It was a mini-self-portrait. Not that anyone would’ve known…
There’s my industrial drawing (on the top right)!
And then we eat what we draw:
Some other artsy shenanigans…
My “bloody tampon” (note the quotation marks):
Now it is!
The gallery was fun, but the route getting there could rival it! I swear to mother nature, I wore a hoodie and a cashmere scarf and I was freezing. Canadian weather, I tell ya. It would’ve helped if I haven’t sprinted from 200 Queen Street West (my original destination was near the AGO!) to the 900′s. But I captured cool photos along the way so it all balances. I ALSO PICKED UP A LOT OF CAR SMOKE, CIGARETTE SMOKE, INCENSE SMOKE AND MARIJUANA SMOKE.
Some ferocious spray-paint:
Ferocious colour-blocking on Queen Street:
(With ferocious ants crawling up the wall!) Some ferocious lizards:
Some ferocious hatred:
Some familiar faces:
I’ve been to so many places lately, I’m becoming world-weathered! But it’s just the good old T-Dot I’m seeing again. Why anyone called Toronto a dot, I have no idea, it’s more of a irregular quadrilateral with little juts coming out. I hope you can see that I’m excelling in my geometry class.
Time and time again, I’ve said Toronto has the bestest downtown in the world. And Queen Street West is right at the center of it.
