OMG you guys, today rocked so hard~!
After lots of planning, and organizing and anticipation, the SOURIFEST ‘13 happened, and it happened so good. 
What was it, you ask? It was a party. It was a protest. It was absurdist satire cop-shaming laughter and fun. Y’see, up here in Canada, (yes, shit goes down here too) Police think they can abuse people, pay no attention to human rights, mass arrest, hold people in ‘souricieres’ (mouse traps: basically a fence made of officers to hold people inside for hours and hours and then arrest them all) give people $637 tickets just for voicing dissent. Well no sir, not in my Canada. No police brutality, or insane laws governing the freedom of speech. Montreal has become a police state. And that simply will not do. 
What to do about it? TAKE BACK THE SOURICIERE! We organized the Auto-Souriciere, a satire demonstration where we arrested, kettled, and brutalized ourselves. With glitter, and circus, and funky lookin’ cops. All the while the real cops stood by and tweeted the photos. HUGE SUCCESS! Dancing, sandwiches, speeches, circus, costumes, glitter, mock battles, mascots. IT WAS EPIC. The real cops couldn’t even handle it, they all left. 
So fuck police brutality, fuck Reglement P-6, Loi 78 and all the trash that is cluttering up my true north strong and free. 
I use circus to send my message. Not pepper spray, zip-ties, batons and tickets. 
This wonderful photo was taken by Mathieu Breton, a crazy good photographer. Photographie Mathieu Breton! www.QuebecphotoMB.com

Brazilian illustrator Gabriel Picolo is just over 100 days into an awesome art project called 365-DaysofDoodles. It’s exactly what it sounds like - Picolo is drawing something new in one of his Moleskine sketchbooks every day for a year. However these are some of the finest “doodles” we’ve ever seen.

Each drawing is unique and often inspired by some sort of pop culture source, featuring his own version of characters from anime, tv, movies and fine art.

Click here to view all of the daily doodles that Picolo has created thus far and then be sure to check back to watch him update the project.

Here’s a version of Van Gogh’s Starry Night created using thousands of curled up strips of paper. Susan Myers used a process called paper quilling to painstakingly build up her version of the piece.

THIS IS AMAZING
