In Front of the Camera

Usually, I hate having my picture taken. I would rather be the one behind the camera than in front of it. But, for a while now I have needed some decent photos of my artistic process and a good headshot for my website and art submissions/interviews.  So, this week I finally had some photos taken, and I’ve posted some of them below. (You may find these photos in the pages of a book  in the near future, but I’m not going to tell you about this yet…)

When I’m working I like to be surrounded by other artists’ work that I find interesting or inspiring and a few of my own favourite works. I also need to have good books, good coffee, window light, thread, fabric, buttons, pencils, paper and ink! We included these elements into the photos, and of course had to put “Mr.Buttonman” in at least one of the shots.

Thanks to Zach Bulick (again) for taking the photos and also to Kulturshöpfer  and Aunt Benny’s coffee shop for letting us use your space! (If you’re ever planning to move/work in Berlin, you should come check out Kulturshöpfer. It’s a great co-working space in Friedrichsain, that hosts many cultural and artistic events throughout the year. You will definitely be hearing more about them on this blog in the future!)

Maker’s Market Photos

So, I’ve been a bit absent from this “sketchblog” for the past month and a half. I’m blaming it on my recent trans-atlantic move to Germany. This has been a huge adjustment, and very exciting to be settling into a new city, culture and language. The only downside is it has cost me some online presence, which we all know is very important in this fast-paced internet world. But now, I am back and have some photos for you!

This past weekend I participated in my first international Artist and Designers Market in Berlin. It’s called the Maker’s Market and happens on the first Sunday of every month from 12-6 pm. It’s located only 10 minutes away from the famous, Mauerpark Flohmarkt. If you’re ever travelling in Berlin, I would recommend you come visit. See some highlights below, and stay tuned because I’ve got a lot of exciting art-news coming up in the next few months!

P.S Big thanks to my fellow Canadian Creative Zach Bulick for help with set-up and taking photos!
