MAYDAY! 2010

On Friday April 29th WIPT Studio will host the kick off party for Toronto's 2010 MAYDAY! events to raise money for the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund (well worthy of our collective donating power!), running Saturday May 1st at Dufferin Grove Park.

Events include:


POLO will be taking place at Scadding Court, south east corner at Dundas St. W. and Bathurst St.
Pick Up played Saturday from 11am - 5pm, Tournament Sunday from 10am till the sun has set.

AFTER PARTY! @ Cinecycle, 129 Spadina Ave.

and the night before the goal is to get as many people hammed on my back deck as possible.

Music provided by DJ Sawtay of Behind The Front Visual Arts Studio, with some special guest from the big bike fam to take the mic!

BYOB or buy from the bar...

Come out, have fun with your friends, help us raise some money for possibly the likes of you, and kick off a weekend as important as it is exciting!

The studio is a busy place when production has a purpose! Those shots are from the night I was making something fun for Tom Mosher's Hell Track. The products were received well and their offspring may end up in a permanent line, but I haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to the rounding up and out of those deets.

As of late (lets call it a month) I've been focused on making this happen (go on, click the link...)

Adrian Hayles and I decided to dive right into bringing Indelible Friends to you, and it starts with a sample clothing and art sale.

This coming Saturday and Sunday, the 19th and 20th of December 2009 we'll be hosting our first exhibit at Behind The Front Visual Arts Studio. 212a Adelaide St. W. unit 301, Toronto.
On hand will be a collection of current prints worked in an array of color, a dozen or so hand painted original art hats from 3 local talents, t shirts, canvases, vegan cupcakes and more!
This is a CASH ONLY sale, but please come out even if you only intend to browse and enjoy some treats that are healthy for body and spirit.

I'm very excited about this, and will have lots to talk about when I can get my brain and hands away from the work table...

Hope to see you this weekend!

A few weeks ago my good friend Glen Hofman,

general velophile and avid polo junkie playing with the West Side Maniacs here in Toronto, paid me a visit at the studio. Lucky for me he was inclined to stick around for the afternoon and composed a sweet hat with some of the fabric and paint I had out that day. I'm thinking about doing a limited run of these, call it the Spokeman Special. If you have an interest, just drop a line to

when worlds make ride

Pushing Oct 29, Halloween is the day after tomorrow and that means we celebrate the unholiest of holy days as wholly as we can in the form of endless parties overlapping with our friends.


Right, 4 of them I care to count this year. Two races, a polo tourney, and a party at Adrian's place to which I tend the bar. Dressed like Hef. Before I think too much about the debauchery to be I need to focus on the caps that will be doled out at two of these events. A round of Manting with a side of surprise for the West Side Maniacs at the Halloween Polo Massacre at Scadding Court from 11am to 7pm, and a few DA SHEPPARD tribute caps donated to the Halloween Alley Cat at the Brick Works.

Thankfully all hallows eve is making it easy for me, all I have to do is make some hats tomorrow night, take them a few blocks from home. Enjoy an afternoon of rumpus and some not so mellow velo hello's with the gang and then head home to get into my red velevet robe (and matching cap?), sneakers and a pipe.
