... is that I've got some very exciting news.
So I've been off the grid for a while, hammering out some small things here and there in typical artistic fashion, but the BULK of my time has been going to a semi-secret project that I can finally talk about!
So, in case you were unaware, I like designing. And I like puzzles. And I've learned that I really like escape / adventure rooms. Turns out that through some delightful happenstance I've been able to actually design an escape room. A good friend of mine who's made his way into the Southern Ontario escape room community (yes, that is actually a thing. I was surprised too) got the opportunity to manage his own escape room for a company called CRUX. He's brilliant with puzzle concept, but not with the art, and offered me the chance to fill the room with all the things!
We've been working on this now for a few months, and soft opened last weekend, but as I was hanging out tonight putting up some final stickers we had our FIRST walk-in customers! It's been insane to see this as an empty building to puzzle concepts to to construction and everything in between.
Unfortunately, this is the one of the few projects I can't preview here, as it might ruin some of the puzzles of the room, and blow the surprise the theme, but I CAN tell you our first room is called Dead Air.
With total bias, I recommend you check out our Facebook page, and if you like what you see, pop over to the CRUX's website and see about setting up a booking. We are making new rooms, and I solemnly swear that this won't turn into only advertising for the room, but it's the only way you're going to see my art this time ;)
Thanks for reading!
