JACQUELINE TYRACEK

Jacqueline Tyracek

Jacqueline Tyráček is the Czech Canadian artist behind the creative endeavors of Cranial Moon Designs. As a child she loved creating tiny apartments out of paper, and drawing dinosaurs in pants. Since then, her work has evolved to include various styles and work in various mediums, including mask making, mural painting, screen printing, linocut, poetry and theatrical performance work.

Self-taught, with the mentorship of both artistic family and friends since infancy, expression and storytelling through art was an early focus and endless passion, as well as the importance of illustration and comics to compliment her obsession with books. Throughout her life, without doubt of direction, she has focused and invested her life in building a broad individual artistic skill set and language with which to express most honestly, though she also has enjoyed creating art to pay tribute to those things and people that inspire. After drawing a series of such film and musician portraits in 2016, they became some of the initial designs used to create the Cranial Moon Designs screen printed clothing, as well as other artsy products born on a whim of determination to start out, with no prior experience, as an art vendor, in order to do more creative work with artistic freedom, and connect with other creatives. As can be detected, subjects of interest include history and culture, psychology, confrontations of fear, nature, emotion, the balance of darkness/light and the ways we process, dreams & nightmares, creature features, stories and fables, and of course, the spooky and unusual.

Vance Nevada

For twenty-nine years, “Mr. Beefy Goodness” Vance Nevada has been a presence in rings from coast to coast in Canada. Born in Souris, Manitoba, he debuted in Winnipeg at age seventeen in 1993, and has laid claim to 45 championship reigns in Canada opposing some of the top talent in the industry including Kenny Omega, Bobby Roode, The Bollywood Boyz, The Honky Tonk Man and more. His travels have taken him to the most remote locations in the country and helped to foster a strong appreciation for the scope of wrestling’s history in the country and the regional nuances that have created a strong connection with fans for generations.

Away from the ring, Vance has been one of the most passionate curators pf professional wrestling history, using his travels to perform as opportunities to visit libraries and archives to unearth information for a recorded history of the sport. In addition to his own previous book, Wrestling in the Canadian West (2009, Crowbar Press), Nevada is credited for his research in numerous published works on wrestling history over the past two decades.

His current book "(Un)Controlled Chaos: Canada's Remarkable Professional Wrestling Legacy" has been heralded by the wrestling community as the most thorough and complete record of professional wrestling in Canada.
