A Home for the Winter

After a couple months of touring with friends, I have managed to settle down for the season in the lovely Dawson City! After a long, adventurous summer, I await the grip of winter, ready to learn at SOVA, and ready to hunker down and focus on creating and becoming a part of the Dawson community.

We’ve been busy in the Dreampipe so far this season, and we’re really excited about where we’ve gone and where we’re going with our work. On October 20th, we had an art show and open mic at the Herbal Clinic & Dispensary. It was cozy and intimate and all other kinds of wonderful. Days later, on the 25th, we brought our suitcase and instruments to a bridge in the east end and we played and enjoyed a chilly evening (with occasional warmth provided by Caela’s homemade veggie stew, a bonfire and multiple layers) under the bridge with friends.

Fall Issue of Izzine

coverfallissueI have completed and will soon be printing the fall issue of Izzine! This season features an interview with artist Noel’le Longhaul of Providence, Rhode Island, aswell as the work of local Toronto Artist, Monica Creep. This issue also shares recipes for spicy potatoes, calming herbal teas and some of the poetry and art from Sienna Ingham, of Toronto. (PDF version coming soon!)

My goal, with this zine, is to spread word of local-and-beyond artists who I believe have much to contribute to radical communities through what they create and share with us. Email me if you are interested in purchasing a copy!
