Carbon Paper: Issue 3 features  an article by Alexandra Caufin about the state of print publishing in Toronto, in which I talk about aesthetics, motives, and the state of the scene. Then they asked me to write a Haiku about Art in Toronto. Here I offer my poetic criticism of Toronto’s modernist, neutral, and static obsession with minimal and abstract form legitimated by lots and lots of white space. Some of this work is stunning and incredible, but I feel that our city’s art scene is caught in a rather ineffectual position of bank-bought blandalism… But then again, Carbon Paper’s issue 3 cover statement: “Self-Hate is so 2012” suggests that my complaint is dated…  @carbon_paper #torontoart #rant #haiku #printculture

Happy July! Just the start of something amazing. This month I design the next year of #Papirmass, go on a canoe trip with my best men, prepare for an August-long road trip with my wife @kirstenmccrea, and wrap up design on the 2015 #isometric #risograph #calendar! Stay tuned!

During the month of June I will be sharing photographic highlights from my time living amongst the farm fields and forests of Prince Edward County with @kirstenmccrea, acting as a guest director of Spark Box Studio’s artist residency. In this photo Pixin Weng, visiting from Singapore, is working on a long form comic book of beautiful paintings at the dining room table. #sparkboxstudio #sparkbox #artist #pixinweng #painting #studio

A short #video we made that documents the process of #Risograph #printing the @alsocollective #poster for the Toronto Offsite Design Festival. You’re going to have to watch this a few times to catch the details! #todo14 #design #timelapse #stopmotion #studio

Late night printing before heading into the woods for a few days. Working away on this Master Duotone Overprint Swatch Chart. Pictured: Orange/Blue. Should have somewhere around 60 different two-colour combinations by the time I am finished. #risograph #overprint #swatch #print #studio

It that time of year: Garage Sale Season. Basements, attics, and sheds release their material congestions, and as the odd collections are dismantled by the eager hands of new owners, evidence of a life disappears. The disposal of, and disengagement with possessions constitutes a necessary psychic cleansing. It’s all just a swinging door. In and out. #vintage #hinges #garagesale

I helped @treverferever produce this #book of recent site-specific installations. We printed a few #Risograph pages for a sexy centerfold. Then he cast the book in a block of ice for the opening at Hash Tag Gallery last night. His work is not to be missed! Check out his Instagram to see the original work in all its glory.

One of my all time favorite #risograph prints of #hands by the ever-incredible @troy_lovegates, who stopped by our studio a year ago to produce this amazing limited edition #book: Forest Fire. Having since relocated his street offerings to San Francisco, we still have a few copies for sale lingering in our inventory. http://paperpusher.ca/products/forest-fire
