Here are a few bonus drawings done over the past few weeks by Ehab & I (for which we didn’t capture the whole concert or festival, but liked our drawings enough to share).
Tanya Tagaq @ Indigenous Art Fest 2015 Fort York June 21
Lido Pimienta @ C.R.E.A.M. NXNE Double Double Land 2015
VCR @ C.R.E.A.M. NXNE Double Double Land 2015
And lastly, I coloured in one of the pictures from this colouring book that they were selling along with the merch at the C.R.E.A.M. “mini fest” within NXNE at Double Double Land. This book was made by April Aliermo from Hooded Fang, and includes drawings of different musicians on the line up at C.R.E.A.M.
Last night Ehab and I made some pictures at the 4 installation of Track Could Bend. The night is a monthly experimental music showcase hosted by Mechanical Forest Noise, and this month featured music by Doom Tickler, Castle If, and Dr. Dunn & The Cosmic Range. These shows are especially great to zone out and make psychedelic drawings along to, and I recommend it for anyone who’s inclined to try. The series has found a new home at Dundas Video, and the venue has confirmed the slot for the rest of the calendar year. Next show is Tues Aug 4.
This week on Greetings from Toronto, we are showcasing artwork made by collective members for Bike Porn 4 (the art show component of Bike Smut 8 as seen in Toronto this past April).
“Cycle or Die” by Ehab Arafeh on 4″X6″ watercolour paper
“if it blows up your skirt” by Natascha Malta acrylic paint & pen on 8″ X10″ birch panel
“byke dyke” by Natascha Malta acrylic paint & pen on 8″X10″ birch panel
Because we didn’t share all the great work that was created for Bike Porn 4, (the art show portion of Bike Smut 8 in Toronto this year)- I thought I would take the opportunity this week and share some of the work that was created by collective members for the show.
Here are a few of our favourite shots from a Maleficent inspired photo shoot Becca Jaine did for the show, featuring our mutual friend Julia as the model.
Camp Wavelength just released it’s first round of artists including;
The Wooden Sky, Do Make Say Think, The Weather Station, Doomsquad, Absolutely Free, Loscil, Pierre Kwenders, LIDS, Dirty Frigs, Kidstreet, Scattered Clouds, Avec le soleil sortant dans sa bouche, JOYFULTALK, Kurt Marble, RaveTapes + much more
After a year’s hiatus, Wavelength’s end of summer festival returns to Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto island for a reimagining of the ALL CAPS FEST. This year’s installment will take place on the last week of August this year, and allows a limited amount of festival goers the chance to camp on the Toronto Island for the duration of the fest. (However, you’ll want to snag early bird tickets soon if you want to camp out on the island.)
