From cmagazine:

Kerry Manders begins: “Mr. Long Weekend #18 features Toronto artist Chris Ironside wielding a canoe paddle as sword and sporting a Canadian flag as cape, proudly riding an enormous stag—or, rather, riding an ostentatious stag-sculpture-cum-lawn-ornament. Here, Ironside strikes a humorously self-conscious (super) heroic pose, one arm raised in triumph and purpose as knight-errant on his long weekend quest (T-shirt, ball cap and flip-flops=ubiquitous long weekend armour). Ironside’s quest is neither singular nor teleological. . .”
