The Dreaded Life Drawing Post

I have been going to life drawing sessions here in peterborough with some local artists at the Art Gallery of Peterborough. I have really been enjoying it, when I remember to go. I do miss life drawing at Sheridan College so this studio time has been a nice substitute. Here are some sketchbook drawings from this morning.

Ribb Ribb...

And now for something completely different...
What I have been working on for the last while are these guys. Similar to the job I got last year painting Snakes of the Trent Severn Waterway, I will be painting 10 Frogs of the Trent Severn Waterway. (9 Frogs + 1 Toad) Its been nice getting to know these little guys. They are quite a challenge to draw.I will be finishing these paintings off for the end of Nov. I will post some finished frogs when they are done.
Seen here are the Male American Bullfrog and the Wood Frog (Who I have never seen in real life)

Fan Expo 2011

Thanks to everyone who came out and saw me at Fan Expo 2011. This was my first year exhibiting and all in all, it was a great experience. I had a chance to debut some Zombie portraits that I recently did for fun. I learned a LOT at Fan Expo as I'm sure most people do on their first exhibit and I plan to return next year. Here are the Zombie portraits that were featured in my display.
I did have a chance to create info sheets for them creating somewhat of a backstory for them as characters which people seemed to appreciate. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

Star Fortress

Here is another video game cover I did for the Colecovision homebrew game Star Fortress, coded by John Dondzila. This game looks like an 80's arcade classic. The shapes in the cover are very simple and true to the game. 2d but with a 3d twist.

Waterway Discovery Society

I have recently completed illustrations for a kids' activity book for the Trent Severn Waterway promoting wildlife, geographical, technological and historical education about the Waterway itself. It was a LOT of fun and I was given a lot of freedom. The book itself was really well put together and packed with illustrations! I'm really happy to have been a part of it and hopefully, part of kids getting interested in nature.

Well, its been a while but I've been very busy so its ok? Anyways, I had the pleasure of working on a snake identification brochure for the Trent Severn area. I had no idea there were such interesting snakes in Ontario. probably because I'm not entirely comfortable around snakes or any creatures with built-in angry brows.
All told I ended up painting 13 snakes (in Acrylic) so there were lots of challenges, blah blah blah, here are some faves. Smooth Green Snake, Ribbon Snake, DeKays Brownsnake and Red Belly Snake
