Happy Sleepies flash through transitional space time in Waterloo

The nomadic lifestyle is coming to a close. After 5 years of uprootedness, Marc and I will be moving to a new home for 1 February 2011. We have signed a year lease on a sprawling apartment in Cambridge, Ontario. The apartment is a portion of a 120 year old stone mansion and will give us the much needed grounding and the sheer volume and area of space needed for larger, more ambitious works of art.

In the meantime, for the month of January 2011 we are house sitting in our old university town of Waterloo, Ontario. It’s in the snow belt, oh yes, it’s very peaceful and quiet.

I have been balming my impatient pangs of biding time in a transition space by sewing up and embroidering one Happy Sleepy after another.

Relax, Oh Yeah, to the Day

Relax, Oh Yeah, to the Day I wrote the words and drew the word bubble. Marc did the rest. Oh yeah. The drawing shows The Tourists, two of Marc’s recurring characaters that have so far haunted pages in his sketchbooks here and there and are starting to make more regular appearances, such as in this postcard.

Igor Stagljar Lab website update

The Stagljar Lab website recently got updated. Marc drew some new illustrations, a few new pages were added, nicer photo page layouts for bigger photos, bigger and better navigation, larger text fonts and a wider, bigger layout (monitors are getting larger!)
