So I posted these on my Facebook Page in May but I never threw them on my blog so I figured I'd put them here anyway. Back in May I decided to check back on some of my Pro Bono Promo street arts, although I didn't have time to find them all... but here is what they looked like, 7 months after their creation.
From the top: Colgate, Nutella, Heinz, Miracle Whip, Cheez Whiz, Maxwell House.
Guys, Cheez Whiz strips paint off the wall....

Hey guys!! Here's a really fun #BRILLIANTWORKS project I got to be a part of for Vitaminwater Canada. I got to team up with the awesome Lauren from LaurDIY and we had the opportunity to create our own project together and get it documented. We decided to pixelate things around Kensington Market (Toronto) using large matted prints.
It was a total blast and the videos and photos turned out so sweet! Check out the other #brilliantworks in the series if you have time (there are more to come from artists all around Canada). Thanks Free Agency! :)

I always tell people there are different types of dumb. Some things are stupidly dumb - which no one likes - and some things are brilliantly dumb to the point of being awesome. That's the kind of dumb I often strive for.
Here's an example of such phenomenon. One day I decided to create a YouTube channel fooling people into thinking they'll be hearing their favourite songs with lyrics on the screen. Instead of playing the track, I decided it would be funny to literally give them only the lyrics in the form of someone reading them aloud.
The responses were a mixture of either pure hate, pure love, or pure confusion. See some comments above. This is a steady ongoing side project / experiment that I work on during my off-time. Submissions are open. :)

This is my latest project... Something! It's inspired by Nothing and Nothing. I decided to be the devil's advocate and wanted to see what would happen on this end of the spectrum. Something is better than Nothing. ;)
These are plastic bars with the word "something" engraved into them. They come in a box. On the back of the box, each one has a unique number and my signature!
There are only 120 of these available in existence.
This is my first time creating sellable items and I can't begin to describe all the challenges and problems I came across while attempting this project. So many extra expenses, customer service calls, help from friends, delays, and a few mental breakdowns... but it was a fun learning experience! I put a lot of love into this and I'd appreciate any support you guys can show me by buying or sharing. :)
Thanks so much,
