Young rap artist poised to put city on the map
Dirty Harry, a.k.a. Harmen, is far from being the boy that used to rap in the hallways of his junior high school in southeast Calgary.
Since last year, the up-and-coming rapper opened up the stage for rap artists Mos Def, Big Sean, Meek Mills and Ace Hood at Flames Central. Now he's set to do the same job this week for rappers Fabolous and Pusha T at Jimmy's Nightclub at 1316 – 33 St. N.E. on May 24.
It all started with a black notebook when Harmen was just 10 years old.

Among them is 21-year-old Calgary independent filmmaker, Calvin Maltin.

Lara Presber dishes on developing her 'signature' style
"You can definitely say it's a bit of an addiction," says Lara Presber in her studio.
While she shares the space with two interior designers, it's a perfect resemblance of her passions: a mix between interior design and architectural elements surrounded by mannequins, materials and sketches of dresses.
Presber originally went to school for architecture and pursued a career in the field.

Accident with life-sized bronze horse results in 'perfect studio'
In a nondescript back alley in the northwest neighbourhood of Bowness, Scandinavian rock music mixed with an unexpected screech of a chop saw fills the snow-covered lane in this quiet residential neighbourhood.
The garage door is open, allowing noxious fumes produced by welding to escape.
Welcome to Rob Reuser's studio.
