that Visit Guelph guide...

Well would you look at that? The Visit Guelph Guide is out!

This is the first year they’ve decided to do a Fall edition and I was chuffed to be asked to design and illustrate this edition. Chock-o-block full of stuff to do, eat, and see. From tasting tours, to letterpresses, from farmers’ markets to film festivals, this guide covers it all. Aaaand, perhaps the *most* important, is the thrifting section. Its all about where to get it, and what to look for. Designer, vintage, haute couture and faux couture, the pros know honey.

So pick up a guide and *get your thrift on.*

death of a pigeon.

death of a pigeon.

Let me explain…

As mentioned in el bio, I had been Pigeon Design Lab for the last nine years. (After my son’s nickname). However, this year, a much bigger pigeon came along and said I can’t be a pigeon anymore. And so, my fine-feathered friends, I wanted to have a little *fun* killing off this pigeon o’ mine.

I figure if a cat has nine lives than a Pigeon has to have at *least* four - right? This series I titled #deathofapigeon while I mulled over what the next rendition would be. I staggered the release of them every Monday and hashtagged them #mondaymournings - see what I did there? Of course you did, honey we *get* each other.

Quite honestly, this was a *crappy* thing that happened, so I tried to use allll those therapy clichés to get through it. I *sat with it*, I *reframed*, I *unpacked my feelings* … and in the end, a good ‘ol self-deprecating cocktail always takes the edge off.

‘El hath no fury like an illustrator scorned.

R.I.P.
