Relive fond childhood memories through @studiocorynn’s wonderful portraits ❤️Corynn works from images that she has collected from her own experiences or those of her friends and family. “It is the emotion represented that captures my imagination, and I amplify it in my paintings. In my portraits in this series, I capture truth in the expressions and movements of the children.” Come see more of her work at Booth A17 at #TOAF2018 July 6-8 in #NathanPhillipsSquare ☀️ .

When you promise your family, (especially the dog who’s window you are actively obstructing) that you will move back down to the basement “after the show”, but you don’t really specify which one... Toronto Outdoor Art Fair push is in full effect. @toaeart #homestudio #artistlife #artfairseason #whonneedsalivingroom #torontoartfair #workathomemom

Yet to be named, a fast transfer of feeling without acknowledging any particular feeling, without overthinking, while listening The Mask of Masculinity, by @lewishowes .

I’m bringing this big guy with me to Rosedale, just need to figure out how it’s going to fit! Painting Tetris is probably less fun than it sounds. (Diptych) 40x60 @rosedalebia #cityscape #torontotransitcommission #streetcar #fineartfair #torontoartfair #summerhill

(Detail) Something a little different from me. May or may not be dry for Saturday. (This is when I wish I didn’t prefer oil...) #wetpaint #freshofftheeasel #swimmer #summerishere #torontoartfair #riverdaleartwalk #fineart

As I went through a year of meditating , learning, reading/listening, plus creating art and writing for it, I have recently felt I need to write. I need to write my story so that I remember it. It will help one to remind oneself and to learn from ones past. I have learnt that while the feelings and results of some life events might stay with me, a lot of the details as well as important facts that can entail learning can evaporate. .
I am not sure how dedicated I will stay to writing. It is a less immediate mediums to relay emotions but a more articulate one. .
This also goes to raise my respect for writers and specially the good ones even higher. Today I wrote two little pages. I will see how far I will go, and how this can be mixed with my other art forms. .
I hope you are all able to enjoy the warmth of the sun today, even for a bit. Lunch hour is finished, so I am going back to my other life now. 😊💚📃🖋📖

Meditation Miniatures No.76 “Draplin Effect”
.
.
Through the years of being design student, designer, and design educator, I have come to know a lot of well known designers. The common point among all is usually hard work, persistent, focus, and each usually find a distinct style that separates them from the other in their work. .
.
When the work is done, then there comes the person behind the work. We often go to conferences, events, exhibits, to get to see the person behind the work. It is at those moments that you can find additional respect for someone if they connect with you as a real human. .
.
This past Thursday and Friday, I had a chance to listen to, observe, and meet with a well known American designer, Aaron Draplin. @draplin is a younger designer comparing to many that I have met through the years yet he has the same hard working, focused, methodical mind of the designers in the same league. .
.

Beyond his successful design signature, what distinguishes him from many other designers is his character and the fact that he brings the message of staying human, being real, compassionate, caring, thoughtful, and proud of people in your life. .
We briefly talked about our dads, who passed away at the same age at the same time, about our homeland, and the political mess. I bought one of his books and then, I asked if he will swap one his artworks (poster) with my artwork and he said yes. I then created a miniature called “Draplin Effect” to show what I felt through the encounter with Aaron. Here is what I tried to portray: .
.
Aaron is a big bold bearded man, with a soft heart and sometimes tears in his eyes as he talks. His work is solid and bold, colour saturated, with straightforward tone yet very organized, clean, and humane. He talked about making logos for the sun and the moon and the universe. He has great passion and energy for a never ending cycle of creating, and repeating the process. I hoped to capture many of those qualities, in a tiny abstract image. .
.
Thank you Aaron for bringing the message of care and compassion to design conferences. We all need to be more human. 🙏🏻💚
