Famous in Canada!

Check this out ... a couple of months ago I did an email interview with Craig Courtice of the National Post (Canada) for a possible column, then I told him about my upcoming adventures at the All Candy Expo in Chicago and he expanded the column article to a full one that’s the cover of the Avenue section (in Arts & Life in the physical paper) after we did a long phone interview while I was at the Expo.

Sweet Success

If you’re able to get a hold of the physical paper, let me know how it looks, they used a bunch of my photos and I haven’t seen it yet!

UPDATE: Here’s a preview of what the physical paper looks like! Shazaam!

  3. Oh WOW! Congrats! That’s so awsome, I’m so happy you’re getting this (well deserved) article and attention!

    I wish I was in Canada so I could pick one up!

  5. I have no idea how I ended up here tonight… I usually have no idea how I end up anywhere on the www…  one interesting looking link leads to another until I find myself at a “way cool” place.

    I’m a housebound rural Canadian who just wants to say “You Go Girl”!  Congrats on making it to Chicago and in our National Paper.

  7. Congrats!!  I spotted the page at work and had to take it with me.  Did you want me to send you the physical copy?

  8. Hopti-do isn’t it just fabulous?  I bet you’re not in LA at all, but somewhere on a cloud high in the sky.  Here’s to more and more wonderful press.  Couldn’t have asked for a better article than the one by Craig Courtis in National Post.  Congratulations!

  11. Well, you already know how I feel about your photographing abilities (kick ass) so I’m pleased to see the article used your stuff. Sweet!
