Blog has moved...


So I made myself a new website on WordPress (fun!) with a new portfolio and the site has an integrated blog - I am so fancy. From now on, you can find new blog posts at http://kittenrocket.com/blog/. Thanks to everyone who has visited and supported this blog so far - I hope to see you "over there".

Show Poster


I recently made a poster for the maritime fall tour of two awesome Canadian bands - Paper Beat Scissors and Folly and the Hunter. I am deeply, deeply loving watercolour these days.

Cartographisme, Part Three

For our last Cartographisme event, Bricolage Urbain exhibited the maps created in our workshops at articule, along with maps created in other workshops in the month of September.

Cartographisme, Part Two

Bricolage Urbain's second public event was a map-making workshop with Mile End residents at Articule. Participants added interesting, fun, memorable, important and troublesome points to large scale maps. Everything from the best ice-cream shops to lane ways for wild flower picking were put "on the map".

Cartographisme, Part One

I have been working with a wonderful group of women in an urban collective called Bricolage Urbain. We just held our first series of events, in collaboration with the gallery Articule and a host of other interesting artists, activists and educators in the Mile End. Since we don't have a website set up yet, I thought I would post photos here.

In September, we presented a discussion evening at the gallery on the topic of social mapping.



Coco, Articule's superwonderful outreach coordinator, and RaphaĆ«lle prepare the slides.
