Since a lot of the show had to do with sketching, instead of putting a small booklet for people to sign we decided to try out the idea of pasting up xeroxes (xeroxes of xeroxes, actually) on a full wall with a few markers and a note to draw comments on wall.
When I proposed the idea people said that (of course) if we let people loose with a wall we'd get the obvious obscene images and notes etc. This was fine with me, and actually the only *rule* that needs to be followed is that everyone use the same (green) marker. So far so good.
As expected, the comments run the full extremes from anonymous secret crushes, thoughtful analysis, Harry Potter scars, genuine compliments, silly nonesense, graf tags, book suggestions (Kurt Vonnegut), e-mail addresses, penises and a Crucified Woody Wood Pecker.
Here are a few examples.

Great night, thanks to everyone who took the time to come and see it. Wouldn't have been possible without the help of Gyula Gefin, Mark Molnar, Marjorie Griffin, Allegra, Annie Brunet, Rebecca W, Chelsea Gray, Janet Chan, Joe diLeo, Second year Dawson Students who helped out and Luc Parent.
Up until the 30th of sept.
Posters and zines still for sale (contact me about it) , still taking names for the booklet. More on that soon.

Exhibition booklet got here a few days early - generally pleased with the results. Will have an example of it at the show, taking names of anyone who wants one.
Zines printed up - and lovingly folded by hand (thank you Annie, Janet & Rebecca!) Hope those dudes at the print shop take good care of them when adding those color touches - will see tomorrow morning.
Nice, cosy space - not too big and just the right size for what we want to show.
Attempting to put a bit of color in the Warren G. Flowers Gallery.
