Hot Sales

This is a little fun one-night project I did with my wife for her school Vendor's Market sale at Flemming College. She wanted to represent the Vendor's market with this kind of sandy bazaar scene where someone could possibly be eating dates or filling their cantine. So I whipped up this criminally un-referenced drawing. We were both pretty happy with the result since between the two of us, it took just a few hours to complete whith photoshop and all.

True Patriot Love

From what I have heard, the True Patriot Love Gala Dinner in Toronto was a success! Thank-you to those who came out and had dinner and/or bought a helmet and supported military families. I was humbled to be a part of such a grand cause which managed to raise over $2 million in one night.

Speed Greed

Here is another independent video game cover I worked on recently. I tried to mimic the cold slick 80's airbrush style on the the truly 80's flagship sportscars. Pretty straightforward in the U.S.A

I was fortunate enough to be involved in a charity project in which 100 artists were chosen to create art on helmets for an auction to benefit military families. The auction was set up by The True Patriot Love Foundation headed by former general Rick Hillier so this was a pretty exciting opportunity.
It was really, really tough coming up with a concept to paint onto a round "canvas" but I decided to base the design on the Victoria Cross Medal for valour which is the highest honor you can receive in the military. It was a long, mostly enjoyable process which I'm glad I had the chance to experience.

It's been a long while since I've updated, but I have been busy with a few projects. So here is one I recently completed which is box art for a video game. I had the chance to work on some video game art earlier this year as well, and it doesn't get much better.

Modern Hero

Here is a portrait that I did as a favor to my lovely wife who is writing an article on one of David Suzuki's books; Sacred Balance. this is the first portrait I have done in this loose kind of style.

Here is an old idea I had from school. Originally, it was conceived for a class instructed by Rick Sealock. The project was meant to be an exercise in not-so-appropriate imagery. Something shocking or risky. It was among the first of many roughs which may or may not have even made it to the teacher's hands. To be honest, I can't remember what article this image was first based on.
To me however this image came to represent the mentality of soldiers who function as a unit or singular cause. I imagine there is a lot of individuality lost in being a soldier.The mask represents this loss. On the other hand, a great deal of strength comes from unity. Naturally, an unfortunate loss of accountability can be a side-effect.

BT stands for...

I have been wanting to make this kids book based on my dog since my third year at Sheridan. Almost two years later, it's been really nice having time to actually work on it with my wife. The writing is not perfectly hammered out yet but that doesn't mean I can't have fun with a couple of drawings. The Story will invlove BT (my dog)his Red Squirrel buddy and many other animals trying to figure out what his name "B T" actually stand for. (It will eventually include some colour as well) forgive the bad scans

This past May 2-4 weekend was one of the best ever. My Wife Laura and I decided we wanted to go on a road trip adventure for our anniversary. We decided on Chadds Ford Pennsylvania. Why? Because it is home to the Brandywine River Museum. What’s so special about that museum? It has some of the best American art that I would ever hope to see in my lifetime. Who made that art? Several members of the famous Wyeth family; N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth, plus other members of the Brandywine River School including Frank Schoonover and Howard Pyle(who taught N.C.)
Did I mention its only ten dollars to get in? (or six if you say you’re a student)
All I can say is that if you are interested in even one of these artists, it’s worth the price. If you’re me, it’s a ten dollar tour-de-force.
Plus, if you want to pay an extra five bucks, you can go to the old Wyeth house/studio where the massive family lived and exchanged techniques in being awesome.

This is the outside of the Brandywine Museum. It was a nice museum, inside and out.

This is the Wyeth house, don't you want to go? It was designed by N.C. Wyeth and paid for by the illustrations he did for Treasure Island in 1911! (The original paintings are in the museum)

Here it is, the "barn" studio of N.C. Wyeth, where he worked and trained his students/children. Needless to say, it is amazing inside, complete with prop room full of guns, swords, costumes, farmtools, animal heads and whatnot.

There are too many awesome things about this place to talk about on here. If you get a chance, go.

Wow, what a fast year. What a wonderful grad show. I can't believe its all over. I'm really going to miss spending time with all of my brilliant classmates. I'm really so proud of everyone. Its been a while, so I thought I'd post some drawings that I showed at my grad show. They are an impromptu collection of western outlaw characters that I whipped up. It's been really exciting to have some time to work on my own work since school has finished. Plus my new website is now operational like the death star. Thanks for coming, more soon.

Okay I'm going overboard with this western theme, but I'm really enjoying it. I have been working on satirical propaganda posters within the western genre; Law vs. lawless. The idea for this one is that "the law is everywhere" nobody's boots are safe.
