VBS TV is the very popular Internet Tv station of Vice magazine. They have some very sick shows that include underground cultures like art, skating, graffiti, etc. One of these shows is Skate Canada that goes over the different skate scenes of our country. The latest episode just came out n the Montreal one, and its great. Im extra stoked cause my art can be spotted in different parts, and even me in there. Here are some stills from that report, but for the full show you can see here: http://www.vbs.tv/en-ca/watch/skate-canada/gatorade-montreal-go-skate-all-day-pt-1

A week ago I got married to the Love of my Life. Though this news isn't business oriented, I chose to mention it in my blog because it is something important for my life, and in a way it was an art expression in itself.
The intimate native American/Celtic ceremony was a magical experience, let by a Algonquin tribe elder. It was beautiful and I cried like a baby. If you would like to see the full album of it, you can go here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=469862&id=691325380&l=11ac9a158a
Cruising through Ebay recently I spotted new Tech Deck toys with skate graphics on them. Here is a pic of one of them. I'm sure they are out there in Wallmarts n such, but I just bought some straight from Ebay to save me the hunting time. Let me know if you'd like to buy one off me (20$ each).

Late rthat week I joined over 20 of the best Visionary artists at a nature retreat centre, for Alchemeyez, a Visionary art congress, basically a festival where we the artists flown there where teh focus. It was epic. The art by everyone (including Roberto Venosa, Martina Hoffman, Alex Grey, Carey Thompson, Luke Brown, Xavi, etc.) was great and all of us did live painting together at one point. I also took a painting workshop with the Venosas and heard speeches by many of my favorite artists. There was much more enjoyed, but I will let the images do the speaking. Go Here for a full album of the event.
