I drew a 2nd spring comic strip for @dashingdate, the company providing my speeddating! (When I sent her the 1st, which you can see in my previous post, the owner asked if I could write the text a bit neater, but instead of re-drawing it I decided to draw this whole new 2nd cartoon that I felt would match her optimistic sensibilities even more. I aim to please. And she did love this 2nd drawing! Spring is a great time to declutter your lovelife. So if you want to stop wasting time and start finding love, Dashing Date’s speeddating and matchmaking will put a spring in your step! For a special discount, mention Celebrity Josh sent you. (And if you want a custom cartoon for your business, or want my cartoons on T-shirts, ask!) πŸ’• #Toronto #speeddating #matchmaker #dating #datingapp #single #comic #comicstrip #cartoon I am: #artist celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #talentagent #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #talentagency #modelingagency #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

MC’ing Wednesday’s @gopbj launch party was so exciting, I forgot to grab a swag bag. So Friday, founder Vikram - on his way out of town for a well-deserved weekend vacation with his co-founder/girlfriend - met me at @secondcupkingjohn to give me one. There’s a big T-shirt, which my lady guests can wear as PJs. (Spoiler Alert: I have no lady guests.) Caramel by @gladycakes.ca, so I can grow into the shirt. And a menu from @10tation_event_catering, so I can plan my wedding to my fictional lady friend! πŸ‘°πŸ» #Toronto #datingapp #startup #tech #smallbusiness #catering #socialmediaexpert #eventplanner I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #talentagency #modelingagency #celebrityinterviewer #foodie #radiohost #comedian #actor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #parentingblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

When I MC’d Wednesday’s @gopbj launch party, I met the owner of @safaroma healthy teas made by women in #Afghanistan. And I finally met @emily_models_sometimes, who’s been busy when I’ve hosted Celebrity Josh Brunches, but made it out to this! Speaking of which, I’ve booked her for a brunch on Sunday, April 22. Who’s in? 🍳 #Toronto #networking #smallbusiness #model #socialmediaexpert #eventplanner I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #talentagency #modelingagency #celebrityinterviewer #foodie #radiohost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


When I MC’d Wednesday’s @gopbj launch party, I met all the @jojoinstameets influencers and they all looked like supermodels, so it was hard to remember everyone’s name. Comment below if you’re in this photo! I do know that the woman holding the big lollypop prop is the owner of @thecandybartoronto, though. And the girl beside her is excitedly holding a bag of their candy. 🍭 #Toronto #diversity #smallbusiness #candy #socialmediaexpert #eventplanner I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #talentagency #modelingagency #celebrityinterviewer #foodie #radiohost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


When I MC’d Wednesday’s @gopbj launch party, I was excited to meet the group of influencers who’d been brought by @jojoinstameets to post about the event. I’ve dreamed of being one of those influencers. But I noticed they’re all young Asian girls. (Ok, and one young Asian guy. Though I think he was maybe one of their boyfriends.) Spoiler Alert: I’m not a young Asian girl. But, maybe that’s a good thing? I could bring some age/race/gender diversity to the mix, right? 🍭 #Toronto #diversity #Asian #Jewish #socialmediaexpert #eventplanner I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #talentagency #modelingagency #celebrityinterviewer #foodie #radiohost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I’m a real guy! ⚾️ On Tuesday, Sammy invited me to the #Toronto #BlueJays #baseball game with his 3 friends. I never watch sports. And I hardly ever go out with male friends. But here I was, being a real guy. Even though I didn’t watch the game at all and my favorite part was drawing a cartoon of the #JForce cheerleaders while talking to those girls in the hallway. 🐦 #cheerleader #cheerleaders #dating #single #matchmaker I am: #entrepreneur #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #modelscout #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #modelingagent #travelblogger #talentagent #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #parentingblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I love the @bluejays #JForce girls. ⚾️ On Tuesday, Sammy invited me to the #Toronto #BlueJays #baseball game with his friends. I have no interest in watching sports. But I do have an interest in girls. So I was pleased when Sammy went up to the cheer squad to chat with them. But I didn’t talk. I drew a little cartoon of two of them and they said I’m a good artist. But I didn’t get a chance to give it to them. Also, they didn’t seem to have pockets. And then I figured I should go charge my phone so I could film them some more. But by that point tthey had already left and Sammy was like, “Where where you?!” because I could’ve helped him get the number of the girl he was talking to. I suck. Even that little boy in the corner there got a group photo with all the girls. Oh well. Hopefully Sammy will bring me to lots of games this summer and by fall I’ll be married to a J Force girl. 🐦 #cheerleader #cheerleaders #dating #single #matchmaker I am: #entrepreneur #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #modelscout #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #modelingagent #travelblogger #talentagent #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #parentingblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Why I don’t have kids! πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ On Monday, after driving me from Ottawa to Toronto, Sammy went upstairs to change for hockey and left me alone with his 5-year-old son Zach. Zach sang that he loves me. But then it devolved into farts. This is why I don’t have kids. Well, that and the fact that I’d need a woman to have kids with. 🍼 #Toronto #Ottawa #parenting #parenthood #parents #kids #childhood #parentingblogger I am: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #modelingagency #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #modelingagent #talentagent #travelblogger #modelscout #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Part 2: Buy this gas station and get a pizza place too! ⛽️ πŸ• On Monday, on the drive back to Toronto from Ottawa, we stopped in the Ultramar in Marmora.

After our workouts and #parkinsonsawarenessmonth interview, Diana wanted me to show you that she can put her wheelchair in my parents’ car by herself. πŸ’ͺ🏻 On Saturday, when I was visiting my family in Ottawa, my sister @dianarachlis took me to the @carlingwoodsctr @ottawa_ymca so I could work out while she did her daily work out. She has #Parkinsons, and she does the treadmill and weights daily, to stay strong and fend off the disease. After our workouts, I interviewed her to get her daily health tip. I had to wheel her to the mall in her wheelchair because her feet her seized up in the morning. But she still went to the mall and did her work out. So her tip is to just get off your butt and exercise. She has #parkinsonsdisease (and #celiacdisease) and she does it. What’s your excuse? πŸ’ͺ🏻@michaeljfoxorg @parkinsonsociety_on @parkinsonsdiseaseawareness πŸƒπŸΌ‍♀️ #celiac #Ottawa #Toronto #gym #health #fitness #nutrition I am: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #talentagency #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #entrepreneur #influencer #talentagent #modelingagency #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

With a full-time teaching job and now a side hustle blog, how does Elzbieta do it all? We thought of addressing it after the interview, so here’s bonus content! πŸ’° On Wednesday, I interviewed Elzbieta, creator of @the.6rightest blog! Watch for the interview at youtube.com/joshrachlis and a podcast soon. I met Elzbieta at @paulamorand’s book launch recently, and she told me she's working on a blog about Toronto entrepreneurs. She said she wanted me to interview her (and draw a cartoon of her) when she was ready to launch. We met in the Royal Conservatory of Music and chatted in the coffee shop area. Nobody seemed to mind that we were doing a show. And we had so fun talking, we decided we should do a weekly podcast. Would you listen? 🎀 Want me to interview you and draw you?
