Week #2 with The Dad Project went really well: by the end of it, we had sold 17 prints (including the two donated by our Feature Friday guest artists, John Bagnell and High on Craft) and received some generous direct donations through our Canadian Cancer Society Team webpage. Thanks to everyone for their generous and enthusiastic support!
Here are the two illustrations that I came up with for last week:
Fly Me to the Moon
Pigs Can Fly
I guess being airborne was really on my mind or something!
Thanks for continuing to tune in 🙂

Yesterday, my sister Em and I launched a new project that’s quite near and dear to our hearts: The D.A.D. (Drawing A Day) Project. It’s a dedication to our father who is fighting Stage 4 colon cancer and a creative way for us to support him and the Canadian Cancer Society. Through our daily drawings, we hope to do some fundraising while bringing a smile to people’s faces. Hope you get a chance to check out our site and take a peek at what we’re up to.
With this new project on the go, I won’t be able to keep up with my CSOTDs (Creative Somethings of Day) – as it is, I’m already a week behind! So my plan is to post CSWICs (Creative Somethings When I Can) – not sure how often this will be but I’ll do my best not to disappoint.
Thanks to everyone who checked out my CSOTDs regularly … it’s been fun and challenging coming up with them for the past year and a bit!

Check out The Great Showdowns by Scott C., a clever blog of fun drawings, “chronicling of some of the greatest confrontations in FILM HISTORY”. I love trying to figure out all the different movies … here are an obvious few:
“If your head comes away from your neck, it’s over!” - Scott C. (The Great Showdowns)
“Hey, maybe you haven’t been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!” - Scott C. (The Great Showdowns)
“So it begins, the great battle of our time” - Scott C. (The Great Showdowns)

The Paper Place on Queen Street West in Toronto is a fabulous place to lose yourself in beautiful handmade paper, hand-crafted cards, various stationery and a slew of other fun items such as fancy pens, animal-shaped paper clips, sushi-styled magnets and very cute paper balloons. Treat yourself to some time browsing in this store that also offers workshops in book binding, printmaking, and crafting with paper.

My sis is behind mchenwears, some pretty fabulous self-designed and printed clothing, from t-shirts to onesies to t-dresses … and she’s celebrating her one year Etsy-versary with a fun giveaway where you can win a $50 credit at her online store. The draw happens tomorrow (sorry for the late post) so you still have time to enter by visiting here.
Good luck to all those who enter!
