WRITING, OR WHATEVER

Over the past year or so, I’ve had the pleasure of writing about some of Vancouver’s best and brightest artists and curators — mostly for Vancouver Is Awesome, a funny and positive blog about our city which has gained a whopping following over the years. It’s a strange venue for art criticism, or whatever this is, but it’s been a great excuse to get to know so many amazing people all the same.

Some favourites —
