All About Timing

BY NEIL MIDDLETON
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

There is something amazing about an entire hall filling with the uproar of applause and the silent resonance of music from 100 years ago following.

Inclusivity

BY NEIL BAILEY
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

A label on the outside of a bathroom door can be the beginning of a world-changing narrative.  Inclusivity is a hot topic in the progressive world of 2016 yet we should have evolved much further than what we consider "progressive" by now.

Floodway Print

BY CORY BEAL
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

Business never has an end point, it is a constant goal to grow and create something better.  Cory Beal combined his love of BMX riding with everything artistic that he could think of.  It was the jumping off point (pun intended) for his life goals and the beginning of his story.  This wide-eyed hooligan was convinced that he never wanted to get stuck in a career he wouldn't enjoy and wanted to get out and see the world.  If he had to work, he wanted it to be enjoyable and a constant learning experience.  He finally made the shoe fit, and at the end of his long string of "crap" jobs he finally found his calling.

Life Can Get Hairy

BY KELLY O'LEARY
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

Some times life can get a little hairy. Kelly O'Leary knows this the best and took experience from Clueless, giving a variety of rad make-overs in an alternative matter.  When highschool didn't work out, hair school was the place to be with all the blonde highlights the world could tolerate.  

From embarassing hair accidents to the joy of her first child.  O'Leary has seen it all and took it with grain of salt and learned from all of it.  "It stays with you forever, and you learn from it".  Now addicted to working and pinterest (who isn't), she found her calling in vintage hair and pinup beauties.

Travelling Sign Painters

BY JOSEPH & BRIDGET THE TRAVELLING SIGN PAINTERS
@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

Public speaking might not be their strong point but these Travelling Sign Painters have gathered a small bead of success in their little business.  Mixing up their DMD education and love of graphic design and illustration they gathered an idea and it blossomed.  From a little cart being pulled from behind a 10-speed bike and buzzing around the city just making art and collaborting.  These two have definitely got a long way to go yet.
