Retro Active Lifestyle

“Retro Active Lifestyle” by Lee Hutzulak

From VR #15, Fall, 2007.

This is wonderfully typical of Lee’s style. It was always a treat to commission him to do illustrations for the VR.

HowDoYouSolve

“How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria” by Val Nelson

From VR #19, Fall 2008.

A painting of Queen Mary Elementary School in Vancouver’s Point Grey neighbourhood. It’s timely to reproduce this one in light of the recent
destruction of General Gordon Elementary School in Kitsilano. Seismic upgrading supposedly necessitates the destruction of the older brick structures around town, many of which are schools with rich histories.

Plaza 8

“Plaza 8” by Bruce Emmett

From VR #19, Fall 2008.

A familiar sight for skaters and Bruce is both painter and skater.
