"I have been obsessed with The Hip since my first “Another Roadside Attraction” in 1993. There are very few bands that I have seen live more than this Canadian national treasure. So why have I painted over 80 pieces without a tribute to one of my most beloved bands, and why now? First off, although I live in Canada the majority of my distribution and therefore traction is U.S based, and as amazing as The Hip are, they have never been a household name in most parts south of the border – then it occurred to me that somethings are more important than sales numbers. Secondly, once the news broke of Gord fight, I witnessed a number of artists jump to the canvas to offer tribute pieces and I always try to refrain from being a “me too” artist. As the farewell tour crossed Canada, I started to change my thinking (maybe I too got swept up in the pageantry of it all), I started to receive numerous emails from fans wanting a tribute piece, pleading for me to capture the occasion and the emotion of Gord, the tour and the country – then it occurred to me that somethings are more important than my nonconformist pride.

Of course I wouldn’t dream of painting this piece without contributing to the cause, so of course a portion of the proceeds will be donated by Stickman Fine Art Inc. to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research (Sunnybrook Foundation)."
