Oh, my people,

I just spent a sweaty 2.5 days overcooking a blog post about the fine art of GIVING = RECEIVING and finally realized that I should just cool the freak down and get to the point:

I need to make a living from this blog, and I am asking for your support.

My original plan included offering premium content for a fee and opening an online boutique; but at the moment, I can’t imagine not sharing everything with everyone, nor deal with a bizzy store. When a warmer, fuzzier exchange was suggested, like a bell, it rang my heart:

If you give me a donation, I will gift you a print of my art.


To kick things off, the first piece I am delighted to offer is FLARE – a drawing I made a couple of months ago that feels a little like I do. At 8.5 x 11.5 inches, on quality bond paper.

Thank you, my very dear people, for being here and helping me grow this blog. Your presence incites and inspires me, and I love you all.


A special shout-out to superstar Amanda Fucking Palmer for her trailblazing Art of Asking: the Ted Talk, the book and her ass-kicking inspiration; and to the good peeps at the Cardboard Box Project (Montreal’s merchandising dream-house for ace musicians) for their excellent advice, and with whom we aim to work if and when we get into merch.


GOOD NEWS FLASH: Alan Watts rocks it. Thanks to the crack curator at Scrapbook, I discovered this gem. Dream a little dream with me.


I love to hear from you.
