New Sketch: Happy fella in Canada Goose coat

This is tonight...

My friend Marjorie Campbell is having her first opening at Alison Milne Gallery tonight.
I met Marjorie many years ago as we were both members of the Cabbagetown craft circle. :-)
She makes beautiful felt sculptures and is a very sweet person. Added bonus! Cocktails from the Martini Club.

Inspiration: Isabella Blow + Fashion Blows show

Last week I went to the fantastic Fashion Blows show at The Room at The Hudson's Bay.
With her very quirky looks and incredible fashion sense I was immediately inspired to do some sketches of her.

 Isabella in fantastic hat by Philip Treacy.

My Sketch.

Loved Loved that wild Mouth "head piece" also by Philip Treacy and her helmet in the video.

Another sketch.


 Some photos from a very warm and cozy Thanksgiving.

Many hands and plates for a big Turkey dinner at the cottage.
Is there anything better?
 Bliss - reading on the cottage's screened in porch.

 Beautiful fall foliage in Kazubazua, Quebec.
