For my 30th birthday, I wrote 30 letters to people who have inspired me throughout my life. The project was a simple and fun experiment to reach out to old and new friends and share good vibes during a tough time.
Among the better known recipients were the likes of Kent Monkman, Syrus Marcus Ware, Patsy Van Roost, Chelby Marie Daigle and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Some will be published online as open letters while others will be kept private – between the artist and his hero (or shero). Each letter includes a customized pattern created from a digital photograph.
