HEY APATHY! MONSTER COMICS in Toronto Magazine. An article entitled “THE CITY OF GEARS” was published in this months issue of Dandyhorse Magazine. The periodical is a grassroots social political collection of essays and anecdotes regarding cyclists and their role in the urban environment. There are all sorts of amazing stories and unusual insights within the pages of this alternative publication. The Torontonian magazine focuses on issues of great importance and is not solely determined to have stories about bikes. There is much to be learned from the investigative reporting for both the avid biker and non-cyclists alike.
The HEY APATHY! Article touched on many of my artistic concerns including my humanist philosophies as well as recollections from my days of street art. Many of my experiences, discoveries and as well as my first hand witness to Toronto’s development are all discussed with a firm elegance truly representative of my work. The theme of this issue involved various ideas about social justice and my city of gears was a fitting addition. There are two images included with the interview, the first a classic HEY APATHY! City of Gears and the second a custom hero I designed for this issue. The superhuman is wearing the initials S.J. for social justice while his cranium has morphed into the shape of a bike.
Like the SPACING Magazine I was featured in earlier this spring, I am particularly proud to be part of Dandyhorse. Both of these publications are socially and politically driven and not intended as fashionable or artistic commercials. I often find art mags read like giant empty commercials selling the image of an artiste and void of intellectual content. It is a true triumph and honour to find my work featured in media centered around dialogue, change and social issues. Thanks for the great write up Tammy (Tammy Thorne is a contributing author and the editor in chief of Dandyhorse)
