Carded 2010: Vancouver Art Show

On February 27th I checked out a sweet art show on Granville street. You walk in, purchase a $5 pack of mystery cards created by various artists, then you open them up and start trading with people in the gallery. It’s the most socially fun art show i’ve ever been too. I’m totally looking forward to checking out their other event Hot One Inch Action. If you want to submit art or just check it out sometime, go here: http://www.hotartcard.com $15 bucks later and some awesome trading, this is what we settled with:

The Copper Cowgirl

Since the Olympics began, it’s been absolutely crazy in this city. Music, large crowds, line ups, traffic, noise, fireworks, etc etc. Amazingly i’ve been able to spot a few gems and this girl is one of them. Down on Robson Street she stands, surrounded by a crowd. She’s originally from Victoria, British Columbia but has now found a temporary home in Vancouver during the Olympics. Her name is Claire and she’s the Copper Cowgirl. You should visit her and show her some appreciation, she’s pretty awesome!

Typography Tray

A while back I posted about how i’ve been wanting some typographers/printers trays for quite some time now. Well guess what? My dream came true this Christmas, I got 3 of them from my wonderful boyfriend. I have yet to fill them up completely, but I have found a home for 2 of them on my walls. I also got a cute little retro styled radio/alarm clock which works perfectly on my bedside table. It’s available at urban outfitters and I love that it connects to my iPod too.
