Didn't Miss The Bus

Almost a week at home now. Leisure is good. Sleeping in late in the morning kind of throws off any schedule. Most importantly I can still write. It may not be original work yet, but I keep writing whatever comes to mind. I don't need a busride to be inspired. In fact, I can daydream looking outside any window. So when I worked out of a basement studio for 6 months, I practically turned to a window of a different sort to complete the daydream cycle, the computer screen.
What I missed most was sleep. Ever since I started to write, I have been logging in 4-5 hours daily to fit in time for new creativity.

Winning Commercial Design

What is it? It was the logo design that won me free lunch for a week at the cafeteria.

Favourite Past Time

Checkout the date in the signature. These drawings were done nearly 10 years apart. I haven't drawn anything in a long time. I don't have Bev anymore as she was given to actress Gates McFadden, within the same year.
As you can see, I had trouble with drawing hair back in 1993.

My Life as a Piece of Fiction

OK. I have received a good suggestion to use a biographical piece of writing in developing a story. In short, I will have to make up what happens next. It will be a miracle if it works. I just don't think being a central character in a story is very appealing, so I have removed myself quite literally and look at it from a different perspective. :p

The prologue for this prospective story is in A Dutch Summer in Toronto. See link for guppylove fanfiction at the bottom of the page.

Paper Modeling and Star Trek

Combining two different interests. I search the internet for easy-to-build models. I've waited a long time for someone to design props from the Star Trek universe. It inspires me to create paper models of my own.

A Blast From the Past

For as long as I can remember the old Lily Cup factory was always there, even if the original business has since vacated the premises. It would still remain there for a longer time if zoning had not rear its ugly head. The plant may be gone, but the cup stays. So say the residents of this proud neighborhood. Perhaps because it is the only landmark of its kind in Canada. The rest of the building has been completely razed and I've learned that the cup itself have been removed. It remains to be seen what will be going up in its place.

See the original Lily Cup

Lily Cup history


I am known for my avid interest in watching TV, but only a few shows have consumed 100% of my attention. My bookshelf is an indication of my earlier addictions. After so many years, what I find lacking about TV today is the lack of tangible mementos. Everything is online. So I am starting a blog now to share what influences my creative process. I have a multitude of interests. I hope you will enjoy my work.
