Drawn to the Wild

We just launched a site, inspired by the great Johnny Cash Project, that enables people to participate in creating a new version of a Sarah Harmer video. For non-Canadians, Sarah is a popular singer-songwriter here in Canada. Users pick a frame from the video, and then draw, trace or illustrate on top of it in our online tool. For every frame they draw, Mountain Equipment Co-op (Canada's REI) will donate a quarter to Sarah Harmer's Protecting Escarpment Rural Land.

My Year of Living Canadian

For the year of 2011, I’m living Canadian. For 12 months, I will only buy Canadian products, eat Canadian food and consume Canadian media. I’m documenting my progress through a website, and plan to publish a book about my project in 2012.

Using QR codes to protect Canadian wilderness

We made these mysterious posters featuring QR codes and are putting them up in seven Canadian cities. It's our hope that people scan the posters with their smart phone and then complete the petition form they get sent to.

How Wild is North America?

I run a conservation project up here in Canada called The Big Wild, dedicated to protecting publicly-owned land and water. The web loves infographics these days, so we built one to illustrate some facts about North America's wildness, and how humans impact the wilderness.
