Hergé / Tintin Artifacts from Exhibit in Quebec City

In July 2017, I attended an exhibit in Quebec City about Hergé and his art, especially TinTin of course.

Really enjoyed seeing the inspiration photos, letterhead from his business communications, reference sketch items, various notebooks, satchels and pre-press proofs, plus a special book of ephemera called Tintin In Quebec. Check the Flickr slideshow for documentation.

not all prophets write on the subway cars

Some of these notes are truth – indeed not all #prophets write on the subway cars, some choose cardboard or other substrates yet the medium & message are equally compelling the message is the medium .

Woggles from Cub Scouts when Mom was Akela

When my brothers and i were wee lads, our beloved Mom was out cub scout leader. In Canadian (and international) scouting, the leaders of the cub pack are named after characters in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Mom was Akela, Mikki Gladstone was Bagheera, we also had a Baloo and others.

After Mom passed away and the brothers and I were sorting through items, Dan and I assembled a tub of “woggles” which are little sliders designed to hold the kerchief/scarf together around one’s neck. Of course, there is plenty of creativity available for such a device – many are evidenced in this collection.

Crowd Sourcing Like Tom Sawyer – Board Game Prezo Artifacts

Published on Apr 23, 2014

“Tom Sawyer famously talked his gang into paying him for the privilege of painting a fence white while he sat by and supervised. In this talk, Dave Olson shared how companies can use their community to crowd source projects, bringing passionate users in to mutually benefit both your work and the community members. In this storytelling talk, Challenges, strategies, and successful examples were all shared.”

Artifacts from a talk by Dave Olson at SXSWi 2012 called “Crowd Sourcing Community Projects the Tom Sawyer way.

Crowd sourcing project examples include:

* True North Media House, a citizen media-making campaign during Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010

* Hootsuite international translation project, which made the popular social media tool available in over a dozen languages including Arabis and Polish

* Phones for Fearless campaign, a project which collection un/used camera phones to redistribute to poor/homeless residents of Vancouver’s DTES

Additionally, the artifacts, created from recycled board games and collage art, also explore motivations for participation.
