Back when we lived in the Moon Base Gallery on Carrall Street I built this map to guide people to our events. It's been collecting dust on a hard drive ever since. So in celebration of Vancouver 125th Anniversary I made the design available to the good people at Tees in Gastown for this amazing show. It's a Vancouver downtown east side map of all my favourite streets, including Blood alley which used to be our backyard and home of the Pig and Whistle Pub which I might add is steeped in Vancouver scooter history. Artists include: the Jupiter Project’s Luc Latulippe, Mia Hansen, Vicki Wong & Michael Murphy, AKA: “MEOMI” (creators of Vancouver’s 2010 Olympic Mascots) -Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig, & Svend Smital, AKA “eBoy” (Berlin’s "Godfathers of Pixel") -Chris Von Szombathy, published by Drawn & Quarterly -Illustrator and comic artist Tony Cliff -Illustrator and Art Director Garnet Syberg-Olsen & the Hamburger Disco Boys.

Quite a few of us will be in attendance at this event and come early for a free 1" pin!
