Mr. Loogie

I read about Mr. Loogie in Thursday's Toronto Sun.

It's in our 'hood so KC and I walked by this morning.

Looks like a store, doesn't it?

But it's not. It's a fake store front.

From the A City Renewal Project's website:

A City Renewal Project blends the wallpapered photography techniques of fauxreel with the graphic and painterly approach of Specter as they recreate a neighborhood full of abandoned storefronts inside a 4000 square foot warehouse at 39 Lisgar Avenue in Toronto. The project focuses on the state of decay within the city, renewing these dilapidated buildings as artistic monuments and documenting their history amidst the gentrified frenzy of urban change.

Sounds interesting! I'd like to check it out. Here are deets.
