Hey so since my internship is over I figured I’d get into normal blog mode and create one for ~~pictures n junk~~ http://kaelanandkael.tumblr.com/ Follow me?
Now that my internship is completed I would like to post a little project I’ve been working on lately. While interning at The Venice Printmaking Studio I had an amazing, indescribable opportunity to work closely with the artists-in-residence. Working in an artist run studio is absolutely inspirational. As much as I love my little 3rd floor studio in Toronto where I’m surrounded with...
Day 42 or something
I cannot begin to describe the last, awful 24 hours of my life. Last night I went out for dinner at this beautiful restaurant with the artists-in-residence. Drank bottles of wine, had delicious food. Drank more, and then more. Went to sleep. Woke up had coffee and read. Met Michelle around 1pm to take a boat to the Lido to take a bus to the non populated part of the beach to lounge until 6pm....
Today is my last day of interning at the Venice Printmaking Studio! We just finished the final print in a 8 person collaborative project! Toronto in 2 weeks!
This time next week I’ll be in Paris.
Besides relaxing and enjoying beach time before the new students arrive at the studio, I’ve been working on my Thesis Prep. My initial idea for Thesis is to analyze the effects that digital publications have on established & emerging print publications in the fashion industry. Although I have yet to begin my main body of research, I have begun prepping my illustrative digital portraits...
Busy & lazy. I’ll post pictures eventually…. regardless Paris in 20 days!!! Oui oui oui!

Venetian thunderstorm is lighting up the sky.
Day 20&21 ?
Loosing track of the days. Long days lately. Long enough that one glass of red wine puts me to sleep. Work-a-holic day yesterday, 10.5 studio hours since the residences were clearing up their work stations and preparing to mail their creations home. Since they’re still in Venice for a few more days, we went to Lido beach and got some sun. No one brought their watch. Left at 11 am and...
After a 9.5 hour day on Tuesday the girls in the studio and I went out for a birthday celebration of Francine, from New York! Celebrating her 29th (not really but that’s what we said) birthday I ran into her and Veronica on the way to the bar I was meeting them at. Prior the bar the girls were going to go for dinner but just ended up nibbling and drinking more than expected. I knew then, it...
Cold morning and chilly day. Blue jeans and my long sleeve striped shirt. Today began the last week for the three remaining residences. Although we all vary in ages, I feel like we’ve become quite close. I’ll miss our studio routines. I bought some smoked salmon that was on sale today, it was on sale for a reason as it tasted like shit. Thank god for red wine. While I was walking to...
70% off sales are great. Boat rides at night are greater. Booking a return flight to Paris for 5 days for $140….. the greatest. As for me, the 17 degree weather here in Venice has made me a homebody today. Under blankets and in sweats. I did pilates and ate shitty leftovers. Now; Rushmore, half a glass of red and some dark chocolate. I’m happy.
Yesterday there was a vaporetto strike, but I had no idea seeing that I don’t speak Italian. So at around 9am I walk to my stop and my boat is there, it seems a bit bigger than usual but whatever. It takes me to the first stop in Murano and since everyone was getting off (my stop is the 3rd) I figured I’d take a longer walk to work. So once I get to the studio, no one is there except...
Once again another slow day at the studio, all the residences are just prepping for their final, upcoming week, which I can only assume will be hectic. I wandered around more today, got into the sun. Walked to the ghetto and back, found a lovely bag that for 10 euros I had to have. For dinner I finished up my cherry tomatoes and spinach. Added some garlic, onions (these onions make me cry, but...
After waking up late and slowly making my way to work I finally got there and it was empty. One girl was working on some Intaglio printing on the small press so I cut some paper for her but after that I bailed. I took it easy today, went back to Venice, strolled around some main roads, went into boutiques. Tried to figure out how to take money out of my account but couldn’t. It was a cooler...
