      Tyler Gray Launches New Website!

      by Westside on March 30, 2011

      From Tyler Gray:

      I worked on this new site with Arseni and Grigori at iHousedesign. I wanted a site that was clean and easy to navigate. At the same time, I wanted it to be compatible with iOS (iPad/iPhone) without compromising design and without having to create a separate mobile site. Checkout!




        Derek Shapton recently photographed James Loney for the March issue of Toronto Life. James Loney is a peace activist who was working in Baghdad in 2005 when he was taken hostage with two others and held captive for 118 days. One of his fellow hostages was killed by their captors; James and the other were eventually freed by British Special Forces.
