10 things about Mr. Sellars . . . .

1. Likes to collect and make wind chimes / mobiles of stone and sticks while escaping to a quiet Yukon lake.

2. Has a few string puppets and marionettes but no audience.

3. Loves cooking breakfast for family and friends; dishes are another matter.

4. Once did court room drawings for the Edmonton Journal when then CBC reporter Adrienne Clarkson was testifying at the public inquiry on the Panarctic 737 crash in the NWT.

5. Lead the two agency team that established the new Yukon government visual identity program through 1978 and 1979.

6. Once, as a wandering art student, tried to jump a freight train near Hope, B.C. Fear prevented serious injury.

7. Sold his first (and only) painting at a public art exhibit in Duncan, B.C. when he was in grade 10.

8. Owned a new 1972 Gold Duster with faux alligator skin vinyl roof and white leather interior with bucket seats. It was hot and went very fast. It crashed about a year later.

9. Used to fish for bullheads at Crossland Falls with worms and a single hook.

10. Once was shooting shotguns at dozens of skeets and bottles and stuff with his son-in-law – and missed every one of them. The son-in-law didn’t.

No audience! I would pay good money to see you put on a puppet show. Seriously, Trevor, get on it.

LOVE marionettes. One of the things people don’t know about me, and I tend to forget myself. I concur with Jennifer… would pay money to see you put on a show.
