Centennial Selfies


This was one of those comics I just couldn't resist. This spring Canada Geese were all around the College. In order to discourage them from nesting near the building, dog silhouettes were placed around campus that would move and sway in the wind.

The geese avoided them at first, watching from a distance. Then stood nonchalant nearby, giving the shifty eye and, within the week, they were hanging out beside them. Even saw one sleeping right beside the dog.

It was a good effort. We'll see what's to come for next year...


Centennial Selfies was published in the School of Business Business Connected Newsletter Vol1.2

The Angora Rabbit, Is There Any Other Kind?

If you haven't been exposed to the Angora Rabbit you are really missing out. I was showing some co-workers recently and these are just too good not to share…

Yes there's a rabbit under there :)

Capturing Imagination: The Art of Storytelling
An exhibit of children's book artwork  
by CANSCAIP illustrators
I had the opportunity to go check out CANSCAIP's Capturing Imagination Art Exhibition and, I must say, they did a fantastic job. So many amazing illustrations, some of my childhood favourites, as well as emerging talent... I could have spent hours absorbing in each piece.





Super Pom and Merret the Ferret got the pleasure of hanging out with so many other wonderful children's book characters and it is such an honour to be a part of the show.

For those who were unable to see the exhibition at Humber's L Space Gallery, you're in luck!...
Capturing Imagination: The Art of Storytelling will be travelling 
to the Toronto International Book Fair 
November 13 - 16
METRO TORONTO CONVENTION CENTRE (N. Building)
For more information visit www.torontobookfair.ca 

Hope to see you there!

This Week's Horoscope...

For all those whose enjoy a good horoscope, I would really recommend Now Magazines Astrology section by Rob Brezsny. Always fun horoscopes, I love checking them out each week.

Here's mine for this week:

Pisces Feb 19 | Mar 20  On a German TV show, martial artist Jackie Chan performed a tough trick. While holding a raw egg in his right hand, he used that hand to smash through three separate sets of four concrete blocks. When he was finished, the egg was still intact. I see your next task as having some resemblances to that feat, Pisces. You must remain relaxed, protective and even tender as you destroy an obstruction that has been holding you back. Can you maintain this dual perspective long enough to complete the job? I think you can.



(Found the video that goes with it so you can see Jackie Chan in action :))
