Tom Bjarnason: "Do what you do best and hope to hell you make a living at it"
When Gerry Lazare recently shared his recollections of being an illustrator in Canada during the mid-20th century, he dedicated his entry to Tom Bjarnason. Just the other day, while working on the text of the "Art of Will Davies" book, I came across a broch...

Uncle Tom lived with me for approximately 4 yrs. Through his illness we learned so much about not only Uncle Tom while living with him, but ourselves as well. Newly divorced living with 4 children and an elderly man with health issues, was like packing everything in one suitcase expecting it to fit!  We did survive however, through a witty sense of humour and positive outlook, which I give most credit to inheriting the Bjarnason genes. As a child, I was always so intrigued as well as excited, to see this mysterious man my Uncle, sharing stories of the world, toting his big brown case that held such genius. How delightful we should see this on social media now. We all miss him so dearly especially at Christmas, with all the meals he shared with us during his final years. I hope to see Uncle Tom in heaven and tell him he was just too good to stay here. Life is short, take notice of your loved ones, enjoy just hanging around with them.  Cheers Uncle Tom missing you. Kim  <3

Education
  • Sheridan College
    Illustration, 1981 - 1985
This morning our furnace began clicking and by noon it was making a grinding noise. I searched Google for furnace repairs and found Prologic Comfort Solutions with a five star rating, read the other reviews and decided to give them a call. Keith answered, I described our situation and the type of furnace we have (an older model, which another company had told us you can't get parts for anymore). Keith knew what the problem was, came over asap, fixed everything (which turned out to be a messy job) and gave us a great price for the work - a fraction of what the other company had previously charged us for parts it turned out we didn't need. Keith was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional - he restored my faith in HVAC repair people. He didn't just try to sell me a new furnace as has happened before with "those other guys." I highly recommend Keith and Prologic Comfort Solutions - the five star rating is well deserved!
