The weather’s looking good for tomorrow night’s James Street North Art Crawl! Come see all the artists and makers along the street as we showcase the best in Hamilton’s creative scene! So many great events popping up, so there’s lots to see this month! I’ll have lots of cozy items for the cold months ahead, including my soft, warm Fazooli blankets, perfect for snuggling and binge watching your favourite shows, so don’t miss out! I will also be re-setting up @clubabsinthe later in the evening when the street dies down for AfterCrawl with @bornintheeighties_ so pop on by for a drink!
This Friday I’ll be setting up on James Street North for Art Crawl so look for me near the Armoury. After things die down on the street, I’ll be shifting my booth over to This Ain’t Hollywood for the Beats & Visions III AfterCrawl Party alongside a bunch of amazing Hamiltonians – be sure to come check us out!

I’ll be at Compilation this Art Crawl with Advanced Vision for a Pop Art Party on Friday, November 13th. They’ve transformed the shop to look like The Factory and there’ll be a dope test screening booth to do some filming with cool eyewear from Advanced Vision – so be sure to check it out when you’re out there Art Crawlin!

As usual, I’ll be parking my booth in front of Compilation for the Art Crawl portion of the evening on Friday night, but I’m also super busy in the studio this week trying to wrassle up some new art pieces for the show that follows afterwards at Baltimore House.

Live art is also gonna be involved, so come check it out and get down to some amazing retro rave sounds and fab drink specials. Don’t sleep!! Come support local art!
