Urban Sketching Summer

This year, I think one of my unstated goals was to avoid using the computer as much as possible while it was summer. Of course, when I have video work that makes it necessary to be on one, it can't be helped...however, if you're familiar with what winter is like in Montreal, there is really not much reason why I should be staring in a glowing box in a dark room during the nice part of the year.

This is a little late announcement: if you're looking for something to do art-wise this weekend and are in Montreal, I'm going to be part of a pop-up art exhibition in the Mile End/Plateau area!
