Sizing Up Winter

I’m a little late to announce the release of my new book and I fully blame it on the summer-like weather we’ve been having here in Toronto. It just didn’t seem right to be posting up imagery of snow and ice on a warm, sun-soaked autumn day.

So now that the wind has picked up and I’m wearing a cozy sweater, might I present you with the third book of the Math in Nature series, Sizing Up Winter.

Last year at this time, I was busy working away on the final art for this. It’s hard to believe that in five months time, all four books will have been released. (My oh my, time is ticking for me to get a Math in Nature art show together by then!)

Below is a sampling of some of my favourite pages. I recommend sipping on hot chocolate while reading this book, as the content is quite chilly.

These grey winter days have me daydreaming of my old garden on Baldwin Street. My apartment building had this huge, overgrown yard in the back, and little by little, over the span of 7 years living there, I managed to harness it’s potential...to be a place worth spending time in. I’m grateful (and relieved) to still have friends living there, who aren’t weirded out when I come by to check up on it. Thanks for continuing to care for it @nomadjunction @lindalightbody @alwaysgreener1 🍄🌼🌿
Over the years, I’ve enjoyed creating these little how-to pictorials for WILD magazine. Thought I’d share some here in case anyone’s looking for a fun weekend project. Scroll to learn how to make an Ice Wreath. ❄️

My pal, Catarina, captured Nori in all his fluffiness! Thanks so much @catarinaoliveirastudio 😽 happy #caturday
One of the ways we can help wildlife survive winter’s cold snaps is by planting more evergreen trees. Heavy boughs cut out wind and the needles that fall at the base act as warm bedding for rabbits, birds and other critters.

I was like the owl in the hole...that time some neighbourhood boys demolished my newly built snow fort. I cowered inside the house while my little sister walked out the door and proceeded to give them shit. She was 5yrs old at the time. @_jenbarron_ , you are the owl standing up. . . . These are called Burrowing Owls, btw, and if you google them you won’t be disappointed.
