IMG_0652

 

Artists have taken over the subway…or at least Chester subway station. It’s one of the most inspiring art interventions/projects I’ve seen in a long while and I am over the moon to be love lettering there this summer

August 13, 2015: Write  love letter at the The Artist Newsstand at Chester Station, Toronto. 4-7pm.

And there are heaps of amazing performances (Hello, the musical NEWSIES!!) and art and creations (including my brunch maps and gold paper bunting) there all year long. Check ‘er out!

June 6: 100 in 1 Days + United Way’s GenNext + Love Lettering + Trinity Bellwoods

tbells

So excited to be partnering with the United Way GenNext-ers for this year’s 100 in 1 Days this Saturday!

Head to Trinity Bellwoods Park from 10-1 on Saturday, June 6th and write a love letter to Toronto with GenNext volunteers!

Both organizations are all sorts of inspiring:

100 in 1 Days is a global festival of civic engagement where hundreds of people unite to participate in small initiatives to spark change. 

And the GenNext project encourages people in their 20s and 30s to become involved with United Way—to more fully understand the issues that confront people in our city, to actively connect with and contribute to the community, and to influence positive change through meaningful volunteering and giving opportunities. 

Thank you to The Paper Place and Coach House Books for their generous paper donations!

Love lettering at the top of the West Toronto Railpath


IMG_9345

Saturday was all sorts of amazing. Not only was it gloriously sunny (helloooooo sundresses and sandals!), it was also filled with Jane’s Walks! I met the Jane’s Walkers at the northern edge of the Railpath (after this fabulous walk!) and we wrote love letters to things we love about Toronto. It was so inspiring.

IMG_9348 (also, I got to use a megaphone – AMAZING!)

IMG_9343A huge thank you to my volunteer crew, Laura Wills, Adam Hess and my little (patient!) son Jack!

May 2, 2015: Jane’s Walk + Love Lettering

love, love lettering project, toronto, junction, junction flea market

Jane’s Walk – I’m not sure there’s a festival in Toronto more deserving of love letters!

And I’m thrilled to be love lettering at the end of one of the (many!) walks: The Railpath and its possibilities, led by Alex Mazer, James Brown and Kim Storey.

Join in on the walk and come find me at the last stop to write your love letter to this reclaimed stretch of public space, to Jane and her inspiring ideas, to the Junction, to all the wonderful parts of this fair city we live in!

May 2, 2015
The walk is from 2-3:30
I’ll be love lettering from 3pm onwards at the northern tip of the Railpath!

(And have you seen the Jane’s Walk postcards? Pure brilliance!)

And thank you to Coach House Books and The Paper Place for the paper donations!!

Spring is coming!

spring checklist

It’s a-comin!

It’s always a slow return from the deep freeze of winter, but this year’s spring in Toronto is especially delightful! I like to document my love affair with spring in checklist form (and now you can too! Check out my Etsy shop!)

The Toronto Star even featured the lists (and most significantly, the glorious 20 degree weather!) on their site! More here!

(And more Toronto+spring love = Jane’s Walk is fast-approaching!!)
