Want some cheap art? Wanna support a good idea? Now's yer chance!
This summer I am going on a long road trip with my little boy to have adventures all the way across the prairies, through the desert and up the west coast! I'm also continuing research on the road for a new graphic novel. For this dream to come true, I need to buy a camper van!
Me and The Kid are moving house at the end of January.
So, for one day only, SUNDAY JANUARY 30, I am going to turn my old empty apartment into a gallery and attempt to sell a lot of my work in a massive fundraiser for the van.
There will be:
>>Lots and lots of original drawings from Sword of My Mouth, Unspent Love, and older projects.
>>Seriously cheap screenprinted folios of some of the chapters from Unspent Love
>>Unspent Love, the handbound multiple
>>Sword of My Mouth
>>Older bookworks of which I have a very few loose copies leftover
>>Some drawings by Willy (The Kid)
>>T shirts by Willy (The Kid)
>>Maybe some rummage too like wool and clothes!
ALL THIS WILL BE SO INEXPENSIVE IT WILL BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF
There'll be some food and drinks too if you just want to stop by and hang out. Contributions of food and drink welcomed.
I hope you can be there!
238 SAINT CLARENS AVE, TORONTO
SUNDAY 30 JANUARY, 1PM TO 8PM

Incidentally, Tara Cooper, modeling in the image above, is the 2011 Nick Novak Scholar! Toot toot!

Another chapter of Unspent Love is up at Top Shelf. I'm so touched by Leigh's assessment, "With this series, Shannon is quietly stitching together a tapestry of human relationships that's devastating in its insight. In this installment, misheard lyrics mean more than the originals."
Thank you, Leigh.
BTW, the song is Lakes of Canada by The Innocence Mission. My all-time favourite band. I even love them more than Bruce Cockburn, more than Mike Doughty. I even love them more than John K Sampson.

I've been planning this website for a long while and finally finished it last night. James Gauvreau, one of the world's most beautiful people, did most of the work.
Internet, meet playingdoctor.ca
The Toronto Arts Council helped this come together.
