Out here they call it "Victory"

I've been doing co-op with Paperbagrecords, an indie label in Toronto, and it has thusfar been an absolute blast. I've always been interested in the Canadian indie music scene, so this way I get the best of both worlds, art AND music! In addition to the work being fun, the people I work for are ridiculously awesome, which just makes the whole experience even better.

I made a poster today; they ended up going with a vertical layout for postering reasons, but I thought I'd post my favourite version.

I am slightly frightened for these paper bags at that event, I hope people see them and they don't become trash bags...or body bags. Which ever works best I think.

I also believe the joke is a sports reference as well as a go at the national post...if I am not mistaken.

Those little bags are neat!!

I envy your job, woman. And I should've read this before I sent that email.

So in case it seems I'm redundant, it's not because I lack brain: wait, nevermind
