But despite my inactivity on the blog, there's been plenty going over the past month.
- The second issue of Guts Canadian Feminist Magazine has been published.
- The Truth and Reconciliation Commission ended here in Edmonton.
- I stupidly jumped down a flight of stairs in a Toronto subway and fractured my ankle. Yeah, really proud of that one.
- I won an award for some posters I designed.
- My gf entered the debate over unpaid internships at the Walrus.
- I've been doing a lot of freelance work, some of which is featured on my tumblr page.
I'm off to Toronto tomorrow morning for a brief visit before I start my job. I'm also looking forward to a summer full of personal projects. Some of these probably won't happen but listing them here might help.
- a month of studio time at SNAP (which hopefully results in a chapbook)
- working through John Ruskin's Elements of Drawing and Walter Crane's history of illustration
- conference design for the Marxist Literary Group's annual Institute on Culture and Society
- a couple zines, comics strips, etc.
- a series of musician portraits to build up my illustration portfolio and as well as some concert posters for local venues
- several book reviews on art and aesthetics (I've been meaning to write on Jacques Ranciere's The Future of the Image and Jean-Luc Nancy's The Ground of the Image)
- condensing the final chapters of my thesis into an article
- more focused writing on music
