The life of Donald Morrison, the Megantic Outlaw, is the stuff of myth and legend. To many he was a hero; to others, a ruthless killer. His short life came to represent not only the struggles of an... More > individual against injustice but also the attempt of a community to preserve its cultural identity. Donald Morrison killed a man - of that, there is no doubt. On a sunny day in June 1888, Morrison shot a man on the main street of Megantic in front of scores of witnesses. The man had a warrant for Morrison's arrest for arson and attempted murder. But the circumstances behind that terrible act are rife with all the elements of a Shakespearean tragedy. And the myth, like all myths, is full of hyperbole. In many ways, Morrison was his own worst enemy. Cursed with an itchy trigger finger, an astounding naiveté, and a fiery temper, Morrison was more human than any myth. It is because his story is so human that it is so compelling.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
When buildings are torn down in the city, they often leave an imprint of their structure to the building to which they’ve been attached for many years. Some of these imprints are left to the... More > forces of Nature – wind, rain, snow, sun – which proceed to modify them. Nature is very hard on walls, sometimes carving out small chunks leaving behind what appear to be bullet holes. Other imprints are left to the forces of humans who also modify them with utilitarian gestures: advertising or cleaning off paint brushes. Like Nature, these too are spontaneous. Signage painted directly on a wall is an art in itself, one that requires a mastery of paints over rough surfaces, many reachable only by ladder or scaffolding, employing those surfaces like a canvas to communicate information. The act of painting itself is done outside the protection of a studio, under harsh rays of the sun and the acid air. This is not about graffiti – Monuments are not graffiti.< Less
