Queen West Art Crawl - This Weekend!

Monster. He's delicate.

I have a tent at this weekend's Queen West Art Crawl. Do come and say hello if you are checking out QWAC; my tent is E41. Here is the info:
790 Queen West Toronto
Sat & Sun (September 17th and 18th)
11am to 6pm

Here is the map to my tent:

I spent past three days in Brampton, participating at Brampton Indie Arts Festival. I didn't talk to a real person for the most of past three days. Good god, being alone in the great suburbia took my head to the darkest places.

Brampton Indie Arts Festival was very cool. The city and the local musician, Rich, did a lot of work to give a bit of magical spark on a desolate fall night. Brampton's brand new Rose theatre was decorated with strange paper stripes and pinatas (??). Weird song-making machines were cranking carnivalesque tunes in an empty concrete court yard. There were many musicians, mainly folk and jazz. I didn't check out any of it. Being alone for three days made me go coocoo, I think. Everybody came in groups, and I didn't want to be by myself watching bands. I do enjoy being alone, but man, it was too much.

Anyways, here is a photo of strawberry pinata. I think strawberry candies would come out of it, if you beat it.

Oh, almost forgot.
All the Applied Arts readers can see how messy my place is:
Sheridan College Special Feature. Sheridan Rocks!
Thank you Sheridan College for using my photo for the recruitment special feature. :D

★★ Twinkling Stars Above: Videogame Demo + Thesis Exhibition ★★

I am having my Master's thesis exhibition / videogame prototype demo next week. I was not going to have an opening party because I was afraid of nobody showing up to the opening party. However, there will be a coffee & cookies closing reception. If you are around town during the gallery hours, please drop by and say hello. I'll be sitting the gallery throughout the show. If you bring me vegan drinks (London Fog with soymilk or smoooothies!?), I'd love you.

Oh and I'm in fear of everything going wrong. And currently, everything IS GOING WRONG. So if the exhibition fails, please don't hate me. I'm a crying owl.

Here is the information:
