This new piece is my contribution to Happy Harbor Comics (Edmonton) Vision of Comics art show which opened this past friday. ( I know I should have given a bit more notice for those who may have actually wanted to check it out....)
It's an illustration I'm quite happy with, featuring the golden avenger, Iron man, and some nasty robot monsters ! Prints might still be for sale at Happy Harbor comics ( or you can contact me if you're interested) proceeds will go to paying my rent...
Thanks for visiting !

Coral, Acrylic on Canvas 12"x 12"
This painting is my contribution to El Kartel's current show 100 Amigos, and is on sale an the boutique at 1025 Robson street. Come check it out if you are in Vancouver, there are a lot of talented artists in the show, including this guy, my pal Brennan.
The Coral creatures of the dark seas have been capturing my imagination lately. I love the disquiet of the human form in this strange alien environment.
Coral Sketch, Ink on Bond 5.5" x 5.5"
This is where it started.

The pencils for a personal illustration I've been working on. I've loved drawing the coral formations, I find the variety of shapes and lines fascinating and wanted to build a drawing around them. The ocean floor is strange, but I've tried to make it look even more surprising...

I've been talking a lot about drawing comics lately, and I'm very determined to make my way into the comic publishing world, but not many people have seen the pages from my first short story yet, so here they finally are.
These are obviously at the pencil stage, I'm in the process of refining and inking the pages at the moment, and I plan on completing them; adding colour and design work, and possibly self publishing the story. I've also been adding to the story and might expand on it further.
It's about a clash between to worlds, or two ways of life. The environment is supposed to be eerie and surreal. It follows a strange young man-like creature in the depths of the ocean among caverns of coral reef. He encounters a young woman, a diver exploring the desolate landscape that is his habitat. They meet, and we see what reactions come from two self aware beings, from similar but different species, meeting for the first time..

Here is another recent illustration I created for BeatRoute Magazine's February cover, for the Vancouver edition. It's to accompany a feature about FourTet's new album " There is Love in You" which is actually quite incredible. Check it out. http://www.fourtet.net/
My favorite part of this illustration was the type, I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I just recently finished this Illustration for BeatRoute Magazines' February issue. They wanted original art for a series of Tear-out Valentines, each one by a different artist, and I was happy to be picked as one of them. The victim is a martyr for love, and the female is like the god Eros, or Cupid. I'm happy with how it came out, I quite like the colours. Anyways, check out the Issue to collect all the valentines, and give them to that special someone.

I know I haven't made a post in quite some time, and the blog is in need of something new. I'm working on a few assignments right now, which I will likely post on the blog in a few weeks, but for now here is a snapshot of my process for my current project. More to come soon.
