Gord Downie is immortalized in bear form in this brand new 8×10″ art print.

This man was and continues to be an inspiration not only as a songwriter but also as a prime example of how we can all do our part to aid in the reconciliation process and use our voices for justice and equity.

I’ve wanted to draw a tribute to him since his passing in 2017 that would not only honour his creative spirit, but also his advocacy efforts. $5 from the sale of every print will be donated to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Foundation, whose goal is to continue the conversation that began with Chanie Wenjack’s residential school story, and to aid our collective reconciliation journey through a combination of awareness, education, and action.
