Gladstone Late Afternoon...

Taken by John van Bruggen, on the way to Canzine 2007. Read more about the event here.

Here's more about the event, for Nick who asked :)

Artist Max Douglas was there (Arna's son), showing off his ambitious new book, THEREFORE REPENT (a partnership with writer Jim Monroe). We hung out with Max, (family day!) and picked up a poignant graphic trio of HUNG books by Shannon Gerard and a really funny little (really little!) book called Transit Tokens by John Martz (he of the called notorious TTC ANAGRAM MAP). We also got a trippy PINPAL PAPER DOLL. There was lots more to see and do- you could have a 'hate letter' written about you if you so desired, and read the latest SHAMELESS magazine. We somehow missed seeing the room installation by TARA BURSEY, but we heard it was dark. Tara's work always challenges the viewer.

Hi Nick!

Thanks for the note. The post is now updated for your benefit. Sometimes I get lazy and just throw something up, without any description. Yes, there was plenty of cool stuff to see and do. It's become a pretty large show and attracts an eclectic bunch of creative types. Hope all's going exceptionally well for you.

Hey! Thanks guys! It sounded awesome. Thanks for the links!

And no no no! Post just as much as you like; it's heartening enough just imagining Canzine going on; I always really enjoy it, as it's a good strong blast of raw (although sometimes too raw) creative energy.

Things here are well and busy busy busy!
And I'm not even as busy as James!

Hey Nick!

You're welcome! And yes, Canzine can have it's extra rare side.

Cheers, A & J
