No photos? Artist settles on the next best thing

Shirley Katerynuk was only a stone’s throw from Queen of The Night action.

The Walford Road resident’s patio overlooks the former St. Theresa school — one of the main Sudbury locations where the film starring Ryan Reynolds was shot.

She was able to watch crews scurry in and out of the building.

However, Katerynuk was told she wasn’t allowed to document the process with a camera. Wanting to remember the exciting time, Katerynuk did the next best thing.

“They told me I wasn’t allowed to take pictures, so I decided to draw,” she said. “They’re pretty good pictures, I think.”

Katerynuk sketched not only the people she saw, but also the vehicles and equipment. Her pencil drawings nearly filled her sketchbook. Newspaper clippings, documenting news about the film, also fill the sketchbook’s pages.

“I have to get a new book soon,” she said with a smile.

Katerynuk has always enjoyed being creative. She enjoys sewing and needlepoint, but is particularly partial to drawing.

“People say ‘keep on drawing,’” she said.

On a few occasions, Katerynuk said she was able to chat with some of the crew. The conversations helped bring her drawings to life. It was “cool” to have the opportunity to witness the film process up close and personal, she said.
