80 Du Parc

O yes, and here is Taien Ng-Chan's whimsical and sensitive film 80 Du Parc. I helped with some of the set pieces, like the trees and the kitchen and the bus chairs. At the time of the shooting I was the illest I have ever been in my living memory. I almost felt like I could die. I had an insane hallucinating fever and could barely walk. Every time I shut my eyes I saw electric blue hallucinations, which I have always meant to draw. They were quite beautiful. I didn't get my strength back for months!! It was loopy, but at least it didn't kill me. Turned out to be strep throat and maybe mono but I never followed up on the funky liver test.

Plants and Animals "Feedback in the Field" video

Once upon a time I got the most perfect for me job ever. All I had to do was make, modify and paint models for Louisa Schabas to decorate her Parc avenue, Montreal street set. They could be car models, animal models, unicron models, turkey models, bird models, people models. I could do it forever. It was pure bliss!!!! I made almost ALL the people BROWN as a form of quiet micro-activism. Maybe I had one token white person though. Anyways no-one noticed they all thought they just had tans...hee hee hee. My favorites were the miniature, like very very miniature people I did in breakdance skeleton suits flaunting Trinidadian flags.

First Saint-Laurent Blvd. STREET FAIR of 2010!

" La Centrale
infiltrates for the first time this summer the Main Madness with its heteroclite workshops and performances! Not to be missed: workshops, performances, intimate conversations and shows! "

I will be taking orders for non-accurate portraits and love letters.

Ok, so this is how this project turned out. I had ONE portrait request, which I insisted on of my friend Rebecca, who kindly visited me. And ONE love letter attempt. However, it fizzled before the end. In fact I barely got the "Dear so-and-so " part down before the project died. I had made a mistake in writing the names and wanted to include this in the letter it was after all a documentation of our negotiations and miscommunications. This did not please my client. We aborted the project. I tried to refuse payment, but she hid a loonie behind my flower vase....
