Project Runway

On season 2 of this fantastic show, there was a guy named Santino who was just the funniest guy to watch. I'm sure the editors made him out to be a lot worse than he was, but he was one of those characters that just MADE the show, you know? ANyhow, i was rewatching my copies of season 2 on the weekend, and sorta doodled this - a caricature of him.

And here is a generic girl.

Fireworks Display

I live down near English Bay where the annual fireworks display kicked off last night. On my way home from work i walked along the water to marvel at the number of people who were there already (hours before the start of the show), and to see how packed the beach was. Here are a few of the people who stuck out in my mind...

Obviously tremendously excited to be down on the beach 5 hours prior to the display starting...

A little old man begging down by the edge of the beach... I was quite fond of his Mr. Rogers cardigan sweater.

A fat, little bully who felt it necessary to push his way through crowds of old people and children as he slithered his way closer to the water.

You know those cartoony maps that you see in all the touristy shops of Vancouver?

i.e.: this one

Well, I'm doing one for the law firm my sister works at. Some lawyers there are going to Dallas for a conference and wanted a map to hand out to other lawyers to show them how to get to the Convention Centre. One of their landmarks is a farmers market which, in real life, is just a series of 4 tents, so they wanted me to draw a farmer in the spot of the farmers market instead. And that's what this post is all about. He's supposed to be sort of 'emerging' from the map... you know? That's why the bottom half sqwooshes away to tiny feet.

I think it'll look better when i paste him onto the actual road map. *cough*
