Bosty goes to Montreal

Bosty wanted to escape the winter in Washington, DC, so he jetted off to…Montreal, Canada. I suppose he wanted to swap one cold winter for a colder one. Anyway, he decided to spend a weekend exploring the streets and running through the snow.

He also really enjoyed a lot of the street art in the area. Even though it was his first time to the city, he decided to admire the overall environment instead of playing tourist the entire time.

Murals even caught his eye at night when he strolled through the snowy streets.

He loved seeing all the night lights, especially ones that were strung across the street.

And on the last night of his trip, he decided to do at least one touristy thing – ride the La Grande Roue de Montréal, otherwise known as the Montreal Observation Wheel. It was a wonderful way to say farewell to the city by getting a good look at the skyline.

Bosty goes to Quebec City

Bosty wanted to visit Canada the other day, so he could check out Quebec City. He spent the first couple of days strolling around the streets, looking at all the colorful buildings with window boxes filled with flowers.

Since it was his first time visiting the city, he just had to pick up a few souvenirs at some of the local shops.

Then he went off to enjoy the sunshine while looking at sculptures and fountains in public spaces.

Bosty especially liked the public art he ran into, like this art installation of woven boats that were suspended above the water.

It was such a beautiful day to admire the area’s architecture and parks.

And he had a chance to get close to the Salvador Dali elephant sculpture.

Next he walked along the boardwalk to enjoy views of the city by the water.

The Quebec City Film Festival was going on during his visit, so he had a chance to watch a few films that were being screened outside.

Then he was back to wandering around the streets to take a look at the street art. He really liked the intricate murals that were painted on this overpass.

And he enjoyed how every now and then he’d run into an incredible mural that was painted on what would otherwise have been just a regular and plain building.

Before ending his trip, he went whale watching in St. Lawrence, Quebec. It was actually a pretty foggy day, where he couldn’t see very much in front of him.

While riding the boat out on the water, he got to see lots of whales. Unfortunately they moved too quickly for Bosty to pose for a touristy photo.

Overall, Bosty had a wonderful visit where he had a chance to see lots of beautiful murals and public spaces.

The Calgary Tower

“Calgary Tower” Collage on paper. 7″x5″

The other day I received a request from a client in Canada to create a collage of the Calgary Tower. Architectural elements are always more difficult when working on a smaller scale, although I enjoyed the challenge. After spending a lot of time focussing on animal pieces, it was also nice to change things up a bit with a building.
