"Painting the Town Green" in celebration of Centennial's 50th!

Illustration in celebration of Centennial College's 50th Anniversary!
This Tuesday, September 27th Centennial College marked its 50th anniversary by cancelling classes so that faculty, staff and students could "Paint the Town Green"
Thousands of volunteers fanned out across the city to lend a hand in 11 major Toronto parks with a variety of "green" initiatives such as planting trees, spreading mulch, removing trash from waterways and nature trails, painting fixtures and beautifying public areas.
I had the pleasure of heading to the Toronto Island to help with garbage removal at Ward's Island, near the Eastern Channel. Our team did a great job finding a lot of cans and plastic bottles for recycling, tucked away in the bushes. We lucked out with clear blue skies all day, a perfect day for wandering the island. 

It was so nice seeing everyone in their green shirts, coming together for this initiative. A big congrats to Centennial for the success of this event.

Happy 50th Anniversary Centennial!

Find the Panda


I came across this illustration at an event last week and I love it. They're by illustrator Espen Westum. Although I couldn't find his website, I found a bunch more "Find the Panda" puzzles at boredpanda.com

Keep hiding that Panda!

So proud of my sis and you better believe I'll be routing from over here!

In honour of such an occasion, as a fun surprise I sent her a pair of tacosaurus socks in the mail and a custom card of this guy up top. (She'll be wearing them on her long run this weekend :))
