Cheena Normandin is a renegade artist. Her unique experiences allow her to produces some wonderful work and when she’s not hanging out with nice old ladies for fun or falling in love with people on the bus, she’s out there creating something somewhere for no one.

Lindsay Elliott of Lindsays Diet has been taking photos at the Mod Club and Glory Days at the Biltmore as well as other establishments for years. She has been documenting her life and friends throughout her 20s and has been doing a fabulous job of it.

Jon Cranny (who works at the Straight) spends most of his time blogging and when he’s not on the computer he is wandering around, camera in hand, trying to find something to capture that makes Vancouver what it is. Jon is also featured in the This Is East Van book.
