sketchbook work - pen, pencil crayon, some leaves stuck on there, and the left side is a developed film photo of me in new york. the white hand is scratched onto the actual photograph, and accompanied with some white-out pen. 

HI EVERYONE! I have a single print of this available at the moment (left over from the art show) that I am selling! The dimensions are roughly 14 x 18”. I’m starting the price at 45$ (CAD) (+shipping), but the highest offer wins seeing as there is only one print available. Message or email me if you’re interested!!

ahh hello everyone!! sorry for the lack of posts recently but i’ve been incredibly busy - and i have some crazy news to share with you guys!

My two incredible friends, Grayson and Tempo, (seen with me in the bottom right photo) have spent 5 months with me putting together a really kickass art show we called Tabula Rasa! The aim of the event was to begin to foster a community of young artists all across Edmonton by giving young artists the opportunity to showcase their brilliance in a gallery show (which included visual arts like painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and poetry, and performance arts such as spoken-word poetry and music!!). We included People’s Choice Awards, collaborative canvases with loads of supplies (that turned out really cool ahh - there was also a draw to win these, as well), and loads of free food. The second half of the event, taking place the following day, was a series of workshops lead by prominent working Edmontonian artists - which is a super cool opportunity for networking and opened a lot of doors in the way of mentorship!! 

The event itself turned out absolutely phenomenal - I was really, really impressed by the caliber of work submitted and upwards of 300 people came to the gallery throughout the course of the night. The atmosphere was infectiously positive and I am insanely proud of how well it turned out!! ((tbh i kept having to remind myself that i was one of the organizers and had to keep tabs on things instead of running off to enjoy everything that was going on))
We’re definitely planning on turning this into an annual event, so stay tuned for next year if you live in the Edmonton area! 

The process of planning and advertising and budgeting and networking in order to make the show the huge success that it was was a huge amount of dedication and work but I’m so happy that we, as three highschool students, managed to pull off something this crazy. 

BASICALLY THIS IS A HUGE TESTAMENT TO THE FACT THAT YOUNG PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE AND INCREDIBLE AND I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING MORE STUFF LIKE THIS WOW

idk if you can read the sentence on the right page but its relevance is that a while ago my boyfriend texted me “goodnight, sweetheart” but sweetheart autocorrected to “stardust” and i thought that was really beautiful but anyway things have been really complicated lately so i ran away to the mountains to try to clear my head and it didn’t work but at least i made this while i was there and i’ve missed the mountains for a long time so

hello! I scrolled through your commission info and also looked through your answered questions so I apologize if this is a repeat - but do you commission tattoos? I really love your work, I would even pay to have some of your existing drawings tattooed on me. you have the exact style I look for, it's great

YEEEES yes yes y e s YES i think tattoo design commissions are probably my absolute favorite but since they’re so rare I don’t have them listed in my pricing! 
if you’d like to send me more details about what exactly you’re looking for you can shoot me an email at kira.buro@gmail.com :’)
