This is a 21-point chart showing Edmonton buildings of architectural, cultural, or social importance, all of which were bulldozed or burned out of existence between 1950 and 2016. It was impossible to include every building I would've liked, but here's what it does include: names, facades, years standing, and dozens of hours of research and illustration.

This is Edmonton on the 1st of July 1983, the day that city's Summer Universiade opened, and it's one of a series of images I made between April of 2012 and September of 2016 showing my adopted home city of Montreal, my old home town (seen above), and a selection of other Canadian cities. Consider it part of a getting-to-know-you exercise with the nation's architecture and history. Whyte Avenue is basically a straight line near the bottom of the map, while Jasper Avenue zigs and zags from the old Royal Alberta Museum (at left) to Sir Winston Churchill Square (top right).
This is a 24x36" one-colour silkscreened chart showing the complex evolution of the Edmonton music scene over six decades. It started as an exercise in community memory; local musicians were asked to report bands they'd been in, their membership, and years of activity. 157 higher profile groups were picked from that info and given a slot on one of the chart's 20 lanes. On it you'll find such semi-known Edmonton hit makers as Cadence Weapon, Barry Allen, Willy & the Walkers, SNFU, Darkroom, the Wet Secrets, the King Beez, Brewtals, and Troyka. While a few earlier versions of this exist, this one was assembled, fact-checked, and re-typeset in June of 2016 in a format much easier to store and frame.
