Drake, 40, Aaliyah & Mangopeeler

'I love the third world influence in your art.'

When people are sleeping, we are working.

After working a late night in the studio, who would have expected I'd be chilling with Drake and 40?!?!??! After getting a message from Drizzy that he wanted my new Aaliyah Kaleidoscope T-Shirt, I booted over on my psych bike. We talked shop about music, art, Toronto & Aaliyah. Its so inspirational to know they are homegrown Toronto talent, and its even better that they're really chill, humble dudes too. Love for Aaliyah.

Send me a message if you want one. These shirts are Hot Like Fire. mangopeeler@gmail.com

Halo Halo Psych Bike Jam

This past weekend we jammed with our friends at Halo Halo Village in a one-day-psych-bike-factory-marathon. Psychlists, juice, chunes, colour, flavour, homies, footballs, sun tan lotion, Bluffs, shiny things, ponies scraping away time.

Top 3 Functions of a Psych Bike:

1. Anti-Theft
Who needs a a lock that costs more than their beater bike? Psych out your bike and theives are deterred from snatching them when you are not looking. Trust me. Who wants to waste time stripping off a psych bike when they can steal about 10 plain ol' naked bikes in the same amount of time. Or who would be dumb enough to try and steal my bike? I mean, its CLEARLY my psych bike.

2. Road Safety
Cars go right around me when I am riding my Psych Bike. For real, with fancy wheels like that its like riding a giant reflector.

3. Its looks psyyyyych
I even got props from a cop when I was riding my Psych Bike on Bloor and had Gangstarr blasting in the boombox. book it.

Prince Enoki's Insect Orchestra

I flew with an arkestra of insects this past weekend to deliver the printed pollen to Prince Enoki in the beautiful Keswick, Ontario.

Prince Enoki's Insect Orchestra is the musical projectile of the mighty Scott Peterson and posse. Thanks so much Scott for the weekend of clarity on the beach, it Tito'd the collaboration. The more and more I get out of this city, I wonder why I am still here......

The worms are in the compost, having sex in the Garden of Eden decaying past treasures....

The Kids Think I'm From S P A C E

Its the best making art with kids. Sounds like a cliché, but I really do love kids art! They are so unhinged and already so invested in the project. I was teaching 3-5 year olds about screen printing and Space at
Children's Art Studio at the Artscape Wychwood Barns. Its awesome studio run by my dear friend Lynn Jackson.

I told the kids I was from Space and that I would get them some shooting stars and we ended up printing a whole galaxy of stars! They were so inspiring to work with, I don't have to convince them, they are already there with me.

'Jeff, how long does it take to get to space with the Space Bike?' 'Is it dirty in space that is why your pants are like that?' 'Do the rainbows on the Space Bike go to space too?' Gosh these little martians are brilliant, I love my job.

Space is the P L A C E

Moon Landing

Instead of calling them squeegies the kids prefer 'Fudgies'. DONE.

Look how cute these little martians are!

On food break the girls tell me about their Justin Beiber nail polish over tea time.

Pull like a row boat!

Overprinting with kids is so hot right now

The kids try on the Space Helmet

The 3 year olds then asked me, 'Can we paint the Space Bike?!' How could I say no?

Life of a nomadic printmaker. As I ride off they say 'We'll watch for you in space!'
