Silence Can Be Visual


In a noisy world full of force fed stimulus and information, copious distractions that come at us on a daily basis fromr oad signs, radio, television, drama, personal relationships we are swimming neck deepin information. Not only that but we’re choosing to find ways to cram it in faster and more efficiently but multitasking our evenings away watching TV and scanning Twitter.

Luke Thiessen takes the audience through a period in his life where the noise was at an all time high and then came to a skittering halt, and amidst the silence that followed he found his creative self once more and the revelation that silence can be a visual thing.

History of Comics

@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

Why Earthworms are Introverts

@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

Other than being incredibly short, Shannon Loewen and Rachelle Kirouac feel they have nothing in common. One has a love for creepy crawlers and the other a love of gardening - we'd say they definitely have something common.

Wouldn't It Be Funny If

@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

Visual artist, illustrator, and musician Keegan Steele produces two comic strips. Stressed which appears in the Uniter and My Son My Son What Have You Done, which appears in the Manitoban. In his musicial endeavors in the Principal Lyricists and Yes We Missed It, he strives to make his music more poignant and thought-provoking in contrast to the humor in which he presents through his artwork.

Nine out of ten times the thought that begins his diversified creative process always starts with – "wouldn’t it be funny if ..."

Magical Place of Radio

@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

Megan Jensen, a 101.5 UMFM radio personality takes us throught her adventures of radio. In search of a magical place where she could be creative in a cool and quiet environment, Megan found some very cool people inside of a radio station (including two bears).
