derp deer dernier dimanche

Last weekend was a time to contemplate the beauty of derpy animals. Hopefully just the beginning of a wonderful friendship.

On a somber note, Canada lost a talented musician last month. Thank you Gord and the Tragically Hip for bringing stories of the marginalized and obscure across the country to light. You were the first band I saw in concert, formed in my college town, and I had a blast (drinking watery Molson Canadian) listening to you at the Ottawa Bluesfest a few summers ago. You will be missed.

strange art-ifacts

All I can say is that Maya is a powerful software with its own agenda. What folly to think I could simply make a forest.
No, no there must be a forest sphere.

… may post more finds as I journey through this dark UX.

spent a good portion of 2016 doodling this guy into a rainy street:

with no internet

Having recently returned from a 3 day cabin stay without internet or data (at point no point), a few unanswerable questions occurred to us. I present them here, illustrated in ink and firewood coals, for posterity.

progress!

It’s been a while since an article has brought tears to my eyes. A beautiful look at the recent change in Canada’s government.

And some forlorn(?) Folk for Friday
