horsey web Montreals Cedric Taillon daydreams in oil and ink.

A solitary outline is filled in with paramour.  Pencil-leaden silhouttes gradually surround him, crowding a dingy bar as it is built.  Light fixtures descend from the ceiling to throw shadows of figures not yet substantiated, until the room is friendly and full.  The mood is tangible.  Exuberant.  Disturbing.  Organic, and spontaneously evolving.  Welcome to the world of Montreal’s Cedric Taillon.

0 Artisticthings.com exclusive! Interview with Hexes & Ohs

Hello faithful readers,

I find the best of the best music, the cream of the melodic crop, the rockin’ right stuff, bands that have what the French call a certain… I don’t know what. I take these bands, the best that Canada has to offer, and I let them explain in their own words why you should, nay, must check them out.
