I’ll be in Toronto Soon

Hola Comrades!
After way too much time in my condo over the last couple of years, I’ll be doing shows and events again, and it’s shaping up to be a busy summer. Best of all, I’ll be showcasing my work in Toronto at the RAW show on July 23rd. I grew up in Toronto and coming back as an adult is always special.
