Blue-1: RAIN

The blue story Chapter 1: part 1: RAIN by Daria Lanz Rain. I’m not sure Elise realises how pertinent this word is for me. The word is loaded with IRONY. I left Vancouver 2 years ago. One of the things that drove me nuts about the place was how much it…

Yellow-2: TEA2

The yellow story Chapter 1: part 2: TEA2 by Daria Lanz Tea. Classic British culture loving a good cuppa. I was never a huge tea drinker, having been raised in the hipster West Coast where strong coffee from independent shops is the primary fuel that pumps through everyone’s veins. Coffee…

Blue-8: NATURE

The blue story Chapter 4: part 2: NATURE by Daria Lanz I stumbled in my front door, fresh off the plane after a 2 week hiatus in Japan. I was exhausted—jet-lagged from the 8 hour difference, my body didn’t know what it was supposed to feel anymore. I clumsily pulled…

Blue-9: FIBONACCI

The blue story Chapter 5: part 1: FIBONACCI by Daria Lanz Back in high school, Elise and I shared many math classes together. We were pretty good at it, and we actually enjoyed the subject quite a bit. We weren’t shy about this fact either. Anyone who knew us, knew…

Yellow-11: TENSION

The yellow story Chapter 6: part 1: TENSION by Daria Lanz “Tension” It was grey, wet, cold, miserable, oppressive.

The yellow story Chapter 6: part 2: RESHAPE by Elise Mullen I got a piece of paper with “We were never meant to live in boxes” writing in oil pastel for YELLOW 11. My thought process on this was to think outside the box… haha (super original). I found a picture…

Blue-13: LANDSCAPE

The blue story Chapter 7: part 1: LANDSCAPE by Daria Lanz London has an amazing skyline. It’s a complete mash-up between the very old, and the new. Earth had me thinking about, well, Earth. And, of course, my place on Earth. I wanted to explore a more positive concept for this…

Blue-14: HOME

The blue story Chapter 7: part 2: HOME by Elise Mullen My guess for Daria’s Blue 13 is HOME. Daria drew some famous London site with white line work and watercolour negative space. I would love to know how she made this! Daria’s Blue 13 is beautiful and detailed. I assume she drew this…
