Getting Ready to Play With Paint

I decided to go easy on myself and let my work on the Men's Banner Project at Comic Con count for the beginning of the Art Everyday challenge.

Getting Ready For Comic Con

This past weekend I created a Men's Banner at the Central Canada Comic Con. That was a fantastic event that I will be writing about on the Men's Banner Project blog  

Last Friday I ran around getting everything ready and at the end of the night I still hadn't found a place to prepare my banner material. I dropped in at the Urban Shaman Art Gallery for First Fridays (the first Friday of every month when the art galleries stay open late).  They let me use some of the gallery space to paint. 

I still need to wash the floor.

Art Everyday Month November 1

November always seems like a month of preparation, putting away pumpkins, costumes and consuming candy only to pull out Christmas decorations and planning gifts.  November is also the month of Native American Heritage Month, National Homeless Youth Month, National Novel Writing Month and Art Everyday Month. I haven’t actively participated in any of the awareness events or challenges.
Because there is so much going on right now I thought it would be a wonderful idea to try Art Everyday! 

My Favorite Doors

I love finding places and things that could be in a science fiction or fantasy film. This is part of an underground walk way near my work.  Located under the grain exchange building.  One day when I'm walking down this hallway each door will open with an oompa loompa leaving for work, with a couple of smurfs mixed in the crowd.
