Research Occupy Toronto

So last night I got a call from a man who’d done a bit of work with me hyping the G20 anniversary back in June. He apparently has a similar relationship to Occupy Toronto. I, on the other hand, have been sitting back and watching  where it goes due to being extraordinarily busy, and to  various concerns around the progress of the movement.

The man who called me last night… well I guess he liked some of the posters I made for the G20 anniversary, so he offered me $75 to design him some posters for this. Not much for the kind of work, but hey, I was feeling slightly guilty for my lack of involvement, and really needed the money. Missed a couple readings but got it made.

Said he wanted something to target students and get people involved, and that he wanted it to be upbeat and funny. This is what I ended up with:

Consider it an attempt at metaprogramming and the first publication of Electrum: The Invisible College

Print some and put them up!

Thanks to several people whose permission I need to ask before mentioning you by name!
