East Side Culture Crawl Round 2

I had some stuff up at The China Cloud last weekend for the East Side Culture Crawl again. Here's this year's set up:

I put up these stencils in the front stairwell.

Last monkey man with a photo of the piece on the street.

I showed my prints from LA with photos of the original pieces on the street.

Tried selling the prints I put up last year again on that table.

New paintings I did about some very old childhood memories involving my friend Maria from Waldorf. Better photos and full story to come when I take the show down.

Show poster and original re-drawing. 

In the main room I had a cute little monitor with 5 videos on loop.

The Boulder Beautification Project

The Boulder Beautification Project is Evan Sabourin's little baby. He really pushed the whole things forward. We trekked up an old block on day off and gave these boulders a make over. It's the most action they've seen in millions of years. We're talking about geological time here. I bet it's the most fun and attention they ever had aside from seeing tree planters pop a couple of trees by them a few years ago.


The green one was especially cool because it was actually exactly the same colour as the background and was nearly impossible to see from the road. We made a giant boulder that has existed for millions of years disappear! It was also fun doing the least illegal ''street art'' ever. Middle of nowhere art.

Then everyone went and painted their own (smaller) boulder:

Blinky and Winky reincarnated onto boulder by me and Annie

Garrett Jones everybody


I shot a short video of the whole process (until my made in China battery cut out) so stay tuned for that later.

Howling at the Moon - Revamped

I'm going to be in the East End Culture Crawl again this weekend at the China Cloud. I was assigned making a poster advertising us so I tried to make my life easy for once by using an old drawing. But naturally I made things way harder by redrawing the whole thing. Took me all day. I'm really glad I did it though cuz it looks way better than the original.

Golden Wedding

Golden Wedding. My newest short film starring Jacqueline Boily. It was part of a short film festival last night in Vancouver. It's been a year and half in the making so I am very happy it is finally done! Most of it was filmed in about an hour and a half in May 2011 at the beginning of the tree planting season at a ranch we stayed at. You'll see what I mean: Golden Wedding from shouldercat on Vimeo.

This was the other video in the festival: Senyoretes. I'm going to post the updated version of it soon.

In Media Res: Short Film Festival!

I'm going to be in my first film festival tomorrow night! 
It's a short film festival for artists living or working in the Mount Pleasant area in Vancouver. 
Two of my videos will be screened:

Golden Wedding - My newest video that I just finished last week starring me and the wonderful Jacqueline Boily. I haven't ''officially'' released it on the internet so if you're in Vancouver you should come see it! (Otherwise I'm going to post it here Sat. )
Senyoretes - A short documentary shot on a regionally special day of Carnival where I ask cross dressing Catalan boys what their favorite part is about dressing like a woman.
