Artist Spotlight – CANZINO! (Zeus)

Hey all!

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jesus Cancino!!!When I first met Zeus, it was at BITF a few years back, there was a stage set up with all sorts of music equipment, and with his amazing guitar playing, we formed a band ‘Pillow Surfers’ and rocked out for HOURS!!

Canzino is a musician and live-looper residing in Vancouver, BC. Alternative Dance-Rock with a splash of Electronic Melodies; Canzino is always dabbling. Always looking for fresh beats!  Years later, his musical talent keeps rising, his newest single out now, explaining the importance of eating your Broccoli’s!! #ranchitup Check it out now! Keep up the great work!!

After a month or so, I keep telling this story to friends and after much rumination of words and thoughts, I see a potential song here… About a brah/man/guy/dude named coli or something along those lines? I discuss my music + art visions here with my friends and start imagining how the art cover would look like. After talking to her about it, the following week @renslight draws a draft of this character based off of some light ideas on what I had already talked about. I didn’t even have a melody, basic beat, or genre layed out for what type of song this would be. “Game On” said the songwriter in me. I didn’t think much of it when I did it but I had already laid down the guitar and melody for this song around that time… (Side note: This song comes out this Saturday!) . . . #part5 #manifestation #musicartwork #musicart #sweetart #dopeart #artvisions #artvision #artideas #sketches #mysterygenre #charactercreation #musicinspiration #lifeinspiresart #musicideas #songwritingchallenge #broccolicity #bruh #collie #manguy #brodude #howdididothis #yvrmusic #yvrmusicscene #newsingle #newsong #linkinbio #broccoli #pumped #yvrfoodies

Anime Revolution 2019

I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I know this is a little late, but with no cons happening this year, it’s allowed me a little time to catch up on a few things such as uploading the content I snapped the last few years, updating my websites, being more faithful on social media and such like!

This Thursday, I’d like to highlight Summer 2019 Ani-Revo, (otherwise known as Anime Revolution or AR!)

I went to the event as Ruby from RWBY, stoked to be at my first EVER AR!

I rode the skytrain in ensuring it was all clear of GRIMM!

One of the things I love about going to these events is meeting all the interesting and talented people here! This event allowed me to make some wonderful connections, such as a young film maker and cosplayer dressed as Midoriya who recently featured me in a video at this event, check that out here:

I ran into my sister Yang!

A cute black mage:

Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service!

Another Ruby!

My charming and amazing friend Syu⭐zo!!

PIKACHU!!!

Astrid and Hiccup are going to teach me how to train a dragon:

Kim Possible, Shego, Ron and Dr. Drakken!

Ladybug & Cat Noir mashup!

My sis again! Stood up at the altar I’m afraid so she’s a little FIRED UP!

Now here’s a story that really only comes from going to events like these! Met these amazing peeps as they wandered around with a Jukebox singing ‘I WANT IT THAT WAY’ OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING AND SINGING ALONG!!! Still to this day, t.c._c0splay5 and I chat on a regular basis, and he tunes into my streams every week, and we reminisce and look forward to the next time that all of us WEEB AVENGERS will unite once again!

Met MASTER CHEF!

The video below really only catches the tail end of an example of some of the shenanigans we get up to at these events!

It’s also where I met my fearless Twitch Team Leader ‘SPOC‘ who has been using my platform to promote other streamers with common interests while I’m not streaming. Be sure to check out his stream and follow/subscribe!

And on the way out I ran into Jon!!!!

I really enjoyed the time I spent with my new and old nerd friends, I hope to see you again next year!! MUCH LOVE!!!

Till next time! Peace Out – SarahTonin!

Artist Spotlight – Jeanot Kermode!

Hey all!

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jeanot KERMODE!!! When I was first introduced to this talented artist, up until this point I had not met a musician as real and as humble as he. Specializing in Electronic, Bass and House, He still maintains this humbleness in his music, bringing forward a fresh new outlook in each track. On that note, he’s just released ‘Whip It‘, so what better excuse to check out his stuff!! Woohoo! Keep them tunes coming!!!!!

I’ve reached out to him for tracks to run while I’m gaming, which he graciously supplied but I’ve been slow getting them up to stream! I’ll tag them as #KERMODE so watch for and tune in for a treat!

To support, book him for an event, listen to his music, or check out his art, click below!

Artists & Vendors I Met at the Penti-Con 2019

I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I’m also pretty broke when I go to these things, and end up having to buy anything I wanted after the fact, so I always walk out with a little stack of business cards and a plan! What should I do with all these business cards?? I know! Let’s share these talented people with you! 🙂 You’re welcome!

The SHire of Danescombe

Featuring skills and trades such Archery – Armour- Armoured – Combat – Bardic – Calligraphy – Costuming – Cooking – Dance – Embroidery – Glass work – Heraldry – Leather working – Painting – Pewter casting – Rapier – Singing – Spinning – Textiles & Weaving!

Arlane Kamps

This lovely lady paints with oil paint – a real feat if you know anything about painting! Her business card has been sitting on my desk the last few weeks, which illustrates a young women with babies breath in her hair and a tattoo of a buttercup and a daisy on her face. This of itself is breath-taking, but if you stair into the eyes too long, you will become drawn in and never want to leave! Incredible work!

Meta Dragon Art

A Freelance Artist, Tyler Florence has a passion and eye for art. Each one of his business cards sports personal artwork, as he wanted to give everyone who may have not been able to buy a piece of art something to take home with them 🙂 I finally was able to purchase that adorable Ruby art piece I have my eyes on!!!!!

Sweetnam’s Nik Naks

I also ‘helped out’ my buddy’s, (and by help, I mean attracted attention to their booth) who were visiting all the way from Barriere at Sweetnam’s Nik Naks, a store they run with their dad Daniel, awesome guy! They are the other two original RWBY group starters here in the Okanagan 🙂

And last but not least….

Paul Mcgillion

Stargate Atlantis Actor, more currently known for his role in the Flash, was one of the special guests there. A down to earth man who wants to give the normal human an experience to remember! His panel was incredible, I’ve recorded the whole thing, a couple of amazing stories on that one, so expect some of that in the near future! 😉

After his panel was over, I swapped from Ruby to Glynda in the bathroom. As I’m dressing however, the P.A. announced that Paul was heading over to the Stargate for pictures! So I rushed to change, however, the clasp malfunction I had forgotten about happened and I had to dash back out to the car before heading to the Stargate, sadly not seeing him there….But he was JUST Walking away! I said hey how’s it going! He said, hello? I said, I’m the girl who made you cry! He was like WOW you’ve CHANGED! I laughed soooo hard, then we got to jump through the Stargate together, the patience he had with my shitty camera was extremely appreciated!

Till next time! Peace Out – SarahTonin!

Artists & Vendors I Met at the Vernon Comic-con 2019

Well I thought I’d start doing a little something different then just filing all those business cards away for when I need them next! I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I’m also pretty broke when I go to these things, and end up having to buy anything I wanted after the fact, so I always walk out with a little stack of business cards and a plan! However, I don’t want to hog all these awesome people to myself, so I’ll share my finds with you 🙂 You’re welcome!

501st Legion

Spoiler alert!!!! Darth Vader is a lady! Well, at least the one here is 😉 She’s a force to be reckoned with, joined by her husband in an incredible replica of the Boba Fett costume! I hope to work more with these people in the future, so stay tuned for that!

Artists & Vendors I Met at KFX

VIK WALKER

A lovely lady who enjoys to read out-loud, and won’t put you to sleep while doing so! I spent a half hour listening to her read, and it slipped by so fast! I’m normally not a huge fan of being read to, as most can’t read fast enough to keep my brain engaged. But she keeps you riveted with facial expressions and voice pitches that will keep you on the edge of your seat, till she leaves you with a cliff hanger and makes you buy the book 😉 An amazing artist, worth the buy and the read! On the list!

The Okanagan Batman

I LOVE THIS GUY!!! Thank you for making the streets a better place by being the amazing guy you are!
It takes a lot to be Batman – and if you don’t think that, well you haven’t worn a sweaty costume for more then an hour, then pummeled by kids and people who are so excited to see their most favorite character! He always gets down on YOUR level, and will always JUMP at the opportunity to say ‘You’re awesome! WHY?! Because, I’m BATMAN!’ It takes faithfully doing the same thing every day hoping to make someone smile that gains respect, and allows him to go where he goes. 🙂
Please keep being that Dark Knight, making sure our dark nights are safe 🙂

Available for Parties, special Occasions, community events. Besides the bat signal can be reached at theokanaganbatman@hotmail.com

They are the other two original RWBY group starters here in the Okanagan 🙂 They allowed my mum to sell her bags at their shop, so thankful!
