Fletcher Jacket

My friend Dan Fletcher wanted a warm as F*CK Jacket. We discussed fabrics as I picked his brain about what he wanted in a coat, his measurements were taken and he was off to go tattoo someone :) I really enjoyed this project because Dan gave me the go ahead to make whatever design I came up with...Him and I are very happy with what was created. Coat style: "Fletcher" (for obvious reasons)
If you want to order one please give me a ring at 7914547.

Dans work as a tattoo artist took him to Vancouver recently. He popped into a button store and found these gems. I LOVE big buttons!

Big pockets on the inside are a must on a winter coat!

Each Lennard Taylor piece is made for you, with you in mind :)
Enjoy each moment friends

Movie set

I was lucky enough to get called to work as an extra on the third season of "Less than Kind" While waiting for my call i had to use the facilities, this note was above the toilet and made me laugh...

I had to go in early and waited around for a little bit, luckily there were other extras in this scene and even more lucky i knew a couple of them! My buddy Gary strolled in and then Sheen walked in. It was sweet to have someone to talk with for the six hours we were on set!!!! Its amazing the power and money that goes into making an sort of film or tv. The number of people on set is shocking, but everyone has a role to play!!! All are wonderful and it was a great experience! I hope they call me up again!!!

Bus and winter sky/ compliments :)

Standing at the bus stop, the cold penetrates my boots and works its way up my legs. The frosty snow stained windows of single passengers drive past ignoring those waiting for public transit. If those in cars would be mindful and pick others up, would we need public transportation? The winter snow sparkles up at me as I elevate my gaze from the ground to the sky, the dawning of the sun brings salmon and lilic clouds to the horizon. My heart is warmed :) Does anyone see this wonderful sky, or are they just sitting in their personal mobile bubbles (cars) floating off to work? I'll leave that for you to ponder.


Cam picked up his jeans last week: "It might be vain and fickle but the truth is i used to regret choosing my pants every morning, i knew they didnt fit right, too baggy, too long, too tight at the waist so it's a very refreshing change to see 3 pairs of pants hanging in my room that i'm pumped up to wear that day, just a great way to start the day! look good feel good eh? Loving the pants. several compliments on both the canvas and charcoal, haven't had the occasion to rock the black yet. i've been tucking my shirts in everyday because i'm stoked to show off your prairie grass. really, i couldnt be more pleased."

Eric picked up his jacket a couple weeks ago: I found the right occasion to where my awesome new, personalised, unique jacket; theatre better than rural fundraiser. smashing success. many people asked where i would get such a stylish jacket in Winnipeg. i hesitated to say, as to keep my Winnipeg secret, but decided best to tell people instead. i also wore it a work, where a colleague said: this affirms your status as most stylish political staff. anyways, i receive the accolades, but really you should, so i thought i'd transmit them through a short e-mail. on a side note, i now need to find the right pants and shirts to go with this jacket. must keep up the high standards!

Both of these make me happy :)

Love and love will come back to you, be well friends

snow snow snow

The snow keeps falling, its wonderful fluffy self descending from the clouds. I move for the door, boots tied tight, gloves on, ready for the sting of the Winnipeg winter. Walking down the snow covered streets observing the kind gestures of humans helping one another. The snow keeps falling as I watch it sparkle and dance on its path towards earth. Coffee is what I seek. The old frame creeks as I swing the door open, the heat targets my uncovered skin and is absorbed. I wait behind others for the liquids which will heat our insides. Winter is upon us and it is beautiful, take joy in the presence of a new season.

AAAANNNNDDDD the jeans to match!!! This is the same denim as the jacket, signature prairie grass with the Lennard Taylor Logo on the pocket....soooo fresssssh and sooooo cleaaannnn

I was up late lastnight making masks for d'maskerade happening this saturday, crawled into bed and realized I had to go out and move my car....arghhhh it was frustrating to get out of bed and put on cloths...however when i went outside it was a very beautiful scene, the snow was falling ever so gently and the light illuminating off the street lamps made for a picturesque moment in time. Not a soul was stirring, it was just the snow, light and myself to enjoy it :)
When something upsets you, look for the good behind it :)
Much love

Brock Winter Coat

Winter is here and the wind is cold, but not for Brock, he is now fitted up in a new Lennard Taylor Wool coat lined with my special secret to keep you extra extra warm :)

The collar is extra special with some hand stitched detailing that can only make you feel like an individual

And to give the jacket that extra "POW" when you take off your coat a wonderful print to warm up even the coldest room :)

In other news I was lucky to attend a wonderful loft party last night, the host had an amazing DJ playing old school hip hop, the dance floor was bumping the crowd was magical and peace was all around. Why is it that some people can get together, different generations, genres, looks etc and be happy, yet others seem to fight and battle it out....what is it that makes us angry and fight???? I've never really understood that about humans.

Much love to all

The snow has been falling, my fingertips become numb, winter has arrived.

Its amazing how fast the temperature has dropped and the ground has become scrunchy crunchy. Beauty is the first fall of snow, white blanketing the ground. I hope everyone enjoys the first hit of white...I know i do...for now :)

I wanted to share this new pair of pants for my friend Leif, I think they came out wonderful :)

Thursday, November 18, 2010


This pair of 14oz raw indigo turquoise denim is fresh of the machine for my buddy Brendan, he wanted to keep this pair clean and crisp with some prairie grass
He ordered two pairs...this was the second. He went with the 14oz raw heathered grey, beautiful pair and the patchwork fit the style of jean perfectly....he almost didn't get this pair...i wanted to keep them...
off to do more work...many orders to fill...

Sex and the City 2

I came home from class lastnight to my girlfriend cooking a wonderful pasta dinner for us. After plating it we did our usual routine of eating while watching a film...lastnight was sex and the city 2...I was actually excited to see the fashions that were in the film because well silly me assumed they would be wonderful...i was sorely mistaken. The outfits were TERRIBLE!!! case and point attached below So I understand they were about to ride camels but seriously this is what the stylists came up with?

Then they were at the bar and every outfit looked like a bad 80s reunion!!! Samantha's hideous shoulder pad meets hellraiser was simply shocking!!! Other terrible mentions are Carries bee hive hat on the plane and the ridiculous Dior shirt and elegant gown combo she wore to the market...piss poor
Not only was this movie the worst fashions i think i've seen in a while, it was also a poor attempt at selling the US to Abu Dhabi...
all in all i hope they dont make another sex and the city movie and i think all the stylists involved should be fired...well everyone except the one who put Carrie in that cute white dress at the start!!!

working on jeans listening to deadmau5...great times!!!!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010


Meet Paul, hes a bit shy so i left his face out. He is a paramedic in our city and of course is built like a brick house!!! Being built makes finding clothing hard to find, so i made him this minty jacket with a side zipper and jerrad cuffs
This wax coated raw denim will overtime turn a bluish green in areas where it has been wornout, its a truely beautiful thing to see!!!
man he has huge shoulders

The lining is black on black paisley, very polished
on a completely different note my girlfriend took her car into a place on pembina hwy and walked home yesterday. She said and I quote, "its funny i felt more scared of the sketchy people in osborne village then in the downtown core." I've also noticed an increase of grimy people walking around the village...whats that all about?
stay fresh and clean friends :)

The last few days

Meet Jeffs bum, he wanted some minty denim...
we collaborated and talked for a bit...

I made this fresh and minty pair the following week :)

My sister went off to Vancouver so i was cat sitting Milton, he got along well with my girlfriend.
In the midst of getting the studio prepared for the show November 5th art show I had to get ride of a bunch of old wood. Unable to find a new home for it i was forced to go to the dump, it was my first visit. I found it very interesting how as a society we throw away so many things without the conscious thought of were it is going! I know I for one never really thought about it, but after seeing the SIZE of this land devoted solely to "garbage" I am going to be much more aware of what i am "waisting" We all have a choice...whats yours?

On another note, this pair of jeans was made from the last pieces of the black mamba denim. Dont worry friends I have over 20 different kinds and colours of denim...including 6 options of black...

Voting & religion

I think voting is a very important thing for youth, most of us have very little knowledge of whats going on in the campaign and I for one dont really care because it seems that all political figures say these great things and never pull through. All these fancy slogans that campaigners say, such as "I Will Crack Down On Crime" dont really mean anything because they dont do shit!! So how does one know what to vote for??? How can change really happen? I do believe in voting, I've voted ever chance I could, but i dont believe anything these candidates say... Please vote friends, even if it is just to destroy your ballet!!!! Ohhhh and another thing, how is lobbying legal???? WTF?!?!?!?!

This past saturday I was at a dinner party with friends and the subject of religion was brought up, and the talk was of a certain religious center(keeping the name out) in the downtown core that doesn't have to pay property taxes on there building because its against there religion... hmm interesting...someone then brought the information that to become recognized as a religion you have to have more then 30 people at your congregation. In the silliness of the wine in hand we played with the idea of starting our own religion called the Peopleterrians, where paying taxes and parking tickets were against our religion. This religion would be for all people and be pro marriage to anything or anyone you wanted :) Thats as far as we got...Anyone interested in being part of the congregation?

I didn't have a car to go to the fabric store yesterday, so I put my need on facebook and was gifted a ride from a friend. It was nice to feel the love of others as many came to my aid!!! Thanks to all who responded!

ps. Saw a lady cop driving this morning, cell phone to her ear, makeup being applied and knee driving the vehicle...awesome!

snapped this picture with my phone yesterday while i was grabbing something from the wag. The beauty in the world is limitless as long as your eyes and heart are open.

430 wake up

I awoke this morning at 422 not to an alarm!!! I just woke feeling rejuvenated and ready to paint, ideas flowing! I didn't just jump out and go but slowly stretched and moved till my being told me it was time to put on those raggedy old painting cloths. I put a fresh canvas down on the rainbow of old paint accumulated over the years. I took a deep breath and started to work my way through what the canvas should look like. After having my guidelines finished i grabbed a sip of water before entering the process of applying my layers of oils. I am pleased with the work that came from within.

ps. Several garments were painted as well

pps. My art show will be November 5th at my studio to coincide with first Fridays in the exchange :)

Wednesday morning

Good morning wonderful people,

Im changing up the usual product shots to tell everyone how beautiful life is this morning! I had a full day yesterday which has left me a bit groggy this morning. My mind wouldn't let my body rest so i had to get out of bed and continue working, I ended up playing around with two of my Judie's(mannequins) and created a couple one of a kind pieces for women. If i ever end up finishing them i'll post them up here for you all to see :) or if you want a sneak peak then send me a message or email me at

I hope each and everyone of you who read this will smile and think wonderful warm thoughts today.

Much love

Womens Coat Contintued

HOT HOT HOT!!! This coat look stunning on her, such a fashionista! Im kicking myself for not taking more photos of how versatile this jacket really is! The coat is a herringbone wool, triple lined for warmth.
