Not quite sure how it happened but I've forgotten to mention this exciting bit of news. The last little while has been rather busy/crazy/exhausting as my pathetic blogging habits demonstrate, I'm sure.
Uppercase Magazine, an independent publication for which I have great respect, published an article that I wrote about an amazing textile artist and crafter, Lizz Aston. The issue is out now and available either online or at fine retailers.
It was incredibly exciting to put the whole project together and rather surreal to see my name printed in an official capacity. Knowing that Uppercase considers themselves the magazine for "the creative and curious," I knew that I wanted to be a part of it, somehow. I met Aston through a silkscreening class she teaches at the Harbourfront Centre. The first night of class, she showed me her professional work and I was completely blown away! Sometime after the course finished, something clicked in my head and it dawned on me that her work would be a great fit for the magazine. I'll feature some detail shots of Aston's work tomorrow, so stay tuned.
I should also mention that I could not have put together such a cool feature without the awesome photography skills and professional knowledge of Natasha Bardin. We all had such a ball bringing the shoot together.
