I came across a doodle in my sketchbook with this text and a row of faces with different expressions. I’m not even sure what sparked the idea when I drew it. It made me think of social media and the internet in general, where we’re compelled to share our thoughts and feelings online, even though a large portion of the things being “said” don’t necessarily have much meaning or value. A bit of a darker thought behind this one, but I sure had fun drawing all those weird characters!

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has lead to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
