sackville, nb

Patrick Allaby lives in the attic of a building in downtown Sackville, New Brunswick. His apartment consists of a bedroom, where he sleeps for an hour or two each morning after waking up on his couch, a bathroom where he takes a brief shower, a kitchen, where he quickly takes insulin, makes coffee and eats a bagel before running up the hill to work and arriving ten to fifteen minutes late. After the working day is done, he eats supper with his girlfriend in their dining room, before they each go to their individual studios to make art. His girlfriend has very interesting and interdisciplinary art practice, but he just draws comics until around 2 in the morning at which point he lies on his couch and falls asleep watching Friends, where he wakes up at around 6.
