If anything else, being in these two Festivals #100in1daytoronto, #dundaswestfest has taught me the importance of the hashtag, the tag, the like, the retweet, and the repost…. over and over again.

Shirley Street Public School Loves Them Some Fan Mail

Shirley Street Public School Loves Them Some Fan Mail

Friend and helpful supporter of Fan Mail, Alison Bates and I gave a lesson on how to write Fan Mail this morning at Shirley St. Public School in Toronto. Mr Harris’ grade 3/4 class really seemed to love the idea and they are psyched to help us out at the Dundas West Fest, Saturday June 7th. Here is our powerpoint presentation if you are interested in teaching your kids how to write Fan Mail.

Fan Mail Made a Friend

Fan Mail Made a Friend Today

Doodle by ANGEL CHEN

The other day I had coffee with Angel Chen from PAL-SAC.

It was amazing. We talked for 2 hours straight.

Here is why Angel Chen is inspirational:

She is generous, genuine, honest and is a brilliant emerging artist. Emerging might be the wrong word, because while she’s young, she’s been creating Art for a while. She’s emerging because she’s in a groove and soon I am sure the…

I am working on these perks.

Test prints for Slow Dance: No Excuses. 

My friend Alison and I are throwing a community dance in our local parkette.

This is our indiegogo campaign. It’s been a rough start. $225 isn’t anything to balk at, but we are having a hard time spreading the word. Facebook doesn’t make it easy anymore. This algorithm talk is depressing.  

If you can help spread the word, I would totally appreciate it. 

The dance is supposed to happen during the Dundas West Fest, this June 7th at 7pm at the St. Clarens Parkette. It’s also an intervention happening with the 100 in 1 day festival on the same day.

Where did PAL -SAC Go?

Have you heard of PAL-SAC?

Post a Letter Social Activity Club

Imagine a day when every personal e-mail you receive is in the form of a piece of mail, in envelopes of different sizes, papers of different colours and textures, handwriting of varying degrees of legibility. Wouldn’t that be pretty nice for a change?

-PAL-SAC

They met at bars and post offices across the nation to handwrite beautiful…

Spring is here! It’s still a bit frosty in Toronto, to be honest, but we’ve begun restocking our inks, and most of our lines are looking a little healthier. We’ve been keeping busy over here with all the new shipments coming in, and if you’ve visited the shop recently, I’m sure you’ve seen…
