Little Free Library Tour

Little Free Libraries are popping up all over my Calgary neighborhood! I painted this one:

Librarian extraordinaire Kari Brawn led a Little Free Library walking tour on Saturday. They stopped by my house to see the Little Library pictured above (soon to be installed at the Capitol Hill Community Centre. Stay tuned!)

Check out some other Little Free Libraries in northwest Calgary:

1811-24th Ave. NW

22nd Ave. NW at 19th St.

And don't miss the Little Owl Library at 1111-22nd Ave. NW

Summer reading in your neighborhood! What could be better?



Summer Cuts

I saw a shaved cat the other day, and it made me wonder to what extremes pet owners will go when the weather gets hot.


I'm Stuck On You

My sticky note art from sketch night with Mike Kerr, Renata Liwska and friends. Join us on June 13 to enjoy post-it art from Kipling West at Make your own post-it to trade!

An Author, a Cop and a Librarian Meet in a Grade Three Class

I visited more than 400 students for It's a Crime Not to Read, a Calgary Public Library literacy program that brings police officers, authors and library books into schools. My drawing of Constable Simon (left, center) looks exactly like a composite sketch of a suspect, don't you think? The kids, on the other hand, look totally innocent.

Thanks to Kathy Wise and Eda Czarnacki of the Calgary Public Library for setting this up!
