Excellent little article in Spacing about William Lyon MacKenzie as a growing radical, leading to the 1837 rebellion in Toronto, by Adam Bunch.
"Asked to submit a written copy of all of his grievances. Mackenzie responded with his usual passion: he stayed up for six straight days and nights, writing furiously, switching from one hand to the other when the first cramped up.”
Throwback: before most cables ran underground, all electrical, telephone and telegraph wires were suspended from high poles.
ugh crisscrossing tangles of wires are so aesthetically appealing to me
Childhood Beliefs #1
I didn’t know Wales was a county, so when my parents told me Nana was “going back to Wales” I thought she would get off the plane at the ocean and ride away with her whales.
I’m currently collecting and illustrating weird beliefs that my friends and family had as children; this is one of my own.
I had to take some photos of some This One Summer original pages so I thought I’d share them here.
Thanks again so much to everyone who has come out to our events, including the recent signing in LA. It means a lot. <3

Jillian Tamaki is beyond words.
I am glad to be in Canada & Toronto, which are fairly welcoming places and have not banned “homosexual propaganda”, but I do sort of wish we could have a more inclusive and less corporate queer propaganda week. Still, Happy Pride.
