I take the TTC almost every day. I've always loved the little Keep Arm In signs in the streetcars, and there's even an interesting article on Torontoist about them.

My first mission was to create a one-of-a-kind necklace (first 4 photos) by acquiring one of the actual plaques from the streetcars. I got lucky and got one through a friend who works at the TTC - although it has an upgraded font, it's still authentic. I can't wait to wear it at a local event.

My second mission was to create a some-of-a-kind necklace based on the sign for people to buy. It's much smaller and vintage style, made from metal. Currently, you can buy them from here or my website for $10.

I'm super excited to show you guys my new creative business cards made out of crayon, for when I really want to make an impression! I love thinking of fun business card ideas - in 2011 was the start of my business coins, and in 2013 I created out of the box business cards. I think these ones are my favourite - they really capture my passion to be creative in professional ways.

I started by getting the exact shape I wanted laser cut from acrylic, and then I created a rubber silicone mold from that. I've been working on this project for over a month and I really can't wait to hand some out!

I'm currently part of an exhibit at Twist Gallery called Output. Go check it out until the 29th! My works include a series titled I Wish I Were A Smoker and the Psiphon poster series + paper models.

My series, I Wish I Were A Smoker, is about wanting to fit in with people, and wanting to be just as cool as everyone else, but in the end always sticking to my true self and doing what I think is best for me. It's about using smoking as a metaphor for giving in to what everyone around you is doing, and feeling that pressure. It's something I feel in many forms in my daily life, and I'm proud of myself for just being me. I wish I were a smoker, but I prefer candy.

It always made me cringe to see websites use an old version of the twitter logo because the new one is so beautiful. I decided to make a website calling them out. Join me in this war. UpdateYourTwitterLogo.com.
