To my dearest Art Collectors, Supporters, Friends! Where did the year go?
Last we “really” spoke was in June 2016!
I’ve missed everyone so much, as this entire year has beautifully flown by, busy collaborating with the Toronto Blue Jays, Nixon, Lulu Lemon and Microsoft! I was even contacted by AMC’s “Better Call Saul” television series to design a running shoe based on a pair featured in one of their episodes. Random? Maybe not…
I had fun working on a Tretorn shoe collaboration alongside the likes of Jeff Staple and Andre3000 this year, and then also released another fun video for my website.
I had a blast judging the National Red Bull Doodle Contest, as well as celebrating my first “official” painting rental to none other than the set of Saturday Night Live! BOOYAH! (And “RENT ME FOR A SKIT!” crossed my mind)
evmlookbook_expertvillagemedia I had the privilege of
decorating John Mayer’s
guitar case, for the Northend
leg of his tour, and then
I was equally stoked to be
featured on Coveteur's
I had a wicked-hot (and sweaty) studio jam last November! There were so many people at one point that I thought the floor was going to give (eek!). That said, I’ll miss my space, as I moved out over the summer due to some construction taking place (#necessary), and I will be on the prowl for a new studio in 2018-- who’s with me?!! YA!

I was featured in the 24HRS spread as one of Toronto’s “SIXERS TO WATCH”, cute right? LOOK MA!


It’s been a big year for Original Artwork sales particularly in Miami, New York and Montreal this year- and I’m both proud and excited to “re-announce” my relationship with NEWEL Gallery in New York City. If you’re ever strolling around the upper east side...wink!

Overall this has been, and continues to be a fantastic year, and I am feeling extremely grateful and blessed everyday. More specifically, I was elated to receive one of the highest bids on a paddle I put together in support of Camp Ooch. Inspired by this, my wife Emily and I decided to volunteer at the camp this past summer, and what a magical place indeed!
I’d like to also mention that this is my first year as a Sick Kids “Innovator”, for those of you looking to get involved, and last but not least… as part of my personal quest for continuous enlightenment (that was ALMOST cheesy to type but I speak the truth and it just rolled off ma’ tongue), I rode a long, and emotional wave through 11 days at my first silent retreat where I learned, but have yet to perfect the craft of, Vipassana Meditation What. A. Trip! I highly recommend it, and yes I did lose my marbles halfway through but I’M BACK IN ACTION
I'm working on my next Solo Exhibit that will be this NOVEMBER 18TH, 2017 at The Spoke Club, so mark your calendar ladies and gents! Be some of the first to RSVP here I’m excited to share my 80’s rock-inspired artwork, made entirely while playing Whitesnake’s “Here I go again” on repeat. If I could successfully cartwheel, that would be me on the cars. (She should really wear a belt at the 1:50min mark).
I love and appreciate every single one of you-- how could I not if you’ve sat through this entire thing?? Tell me about you… I’m here.
I hope to see you in November, and I will also be in Florida the entire month of Dec for work (and play!), starting with my favourite end-of-year fest, Art Basel!
Wishing you all an incredibly happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for keeping up with my shenanigans.
Sam and the Team
