Kids on the Street

Word on the Street, Toronto, September 23, 2012 (Michel Botman Photography)

Last Sunday, like every year, Toronto celebrated the encompassing nature of literary imagination during its “ Word on the Street” event.

As every year, Lindy woke up early to join her colleagues and volunteer teachers at the OTF booth.  This year was particularly exciting.  Lindy worked on an extraordinary project, called “Books of Life”, encouraging students from all over Ontario to create graphic books filled with drawings and photographs about their lives, their celebrations, as well as native themes and all magical elements of the Great White North.

It was truly fantastic to see many of these kids bringing their proud parents to the OTF tent to show their works of art.

About Michel Botman

Michel Botman was born in Belgium, where visual arts have always flirted with the limits of reality. In the eighties, Michel Botman started exploring the first tools to manipulate images though computers. For about 15 years, Michel Botman worked throughout Europe in the emerging field of Computer Applications for the Graphic Arts. Extensive experience in Digital Imaging allowed Michel to move into the field of computerized systems for Diagnostic Imaging. As VP Sales & Marketing for eSys Medical and later with Eclipsys, Michel Botman always remained dedicated to the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of his career. At the present time, Michel Botman is refocusing his life towards graphic arts. “I studied photography in Europe, but never had time to practice it enough. Life took me on other paths towards computer technologies and running a business. I enjoyed it very much, but I also love art. I always keep my eyes open for exciting opportunities and people that touch my heart.” Michel Botman currently lives between Toronto, Canada and Bangkok, Thailand.
