This is stupid

Hey.


I don't know when I'll be posting again. Life's come up and I'm pretty crippled artistically/emotionally. I hope when I do get back, I'll have oodles of wonderful things to show. Thanks for visiting.

Mary & Max/Dave & Kat

A drawing of myself and my gf for our anniversary in the style of one of our favorite movies "Mary & Max". I didn't have time to finish the background, there were too many other things to get done for that day. Should be done soon though!

Sketchbook 3

These are some designs for "Stinkasaurus" (a very short story my friend wrote). Also there is a page from planning out a street art piece I'm doing. There were some other artists doing something on the wall, but they didn't finish, so I was asked to do something with it. I'm trying to do my own thing while still maintaining and incorporating their piece.

Meow-Meow, Nom-Nom

Nom nom nom is the best sound. Eugene makes that sound a lot since he eats most things he can get his hands on. 

This was made last year for two different shows in China.

Dave & The Birdman!

It's cold again. But I've recently discovered scarves, and they are not joking around when it comes to warmth! I have also been growing a beard for a few months now, so that helps keep my face warm (but makes shop keepers suspicious of me). 


My friend Dave (the gentle giant) Janzen also has an amazing beard (its substantial). He was featured not too long ago in the second work in my recently posted drawing/stop animation series (Click me to see "The Cowboy"! It's neat!l ). Well he's in this next piece as well, rockin a baby version of his beard. We had a pretty good time figuring this one out. I tried to get my brother to model as the bird man but he refused to put on the Birdman mask. He wanted to know why Dave couldn't, so I told Jon that he didn't have an awesome beard like Dave's and I wanted his beard for the painting. Also, Jon wouldn't have had to be in his undies, that was Dave's idea when he ended up playing both roles.


This work is made up of painted layers of board on top of one another, lending themselves to a subtle 3D effect. I ended up using this later with some other paintings (like 'Zomb-Me'Click me to check it out!). So enjoy!

The Thief

It's a wonderfully cozy day out today (lots of rain) so it must be time for more art posting.


This is the 5th drawing/video from a series I did where I portray people as characters that represent their personality. This one features the very talented tattoo artist Veronique Gray (she's talented in many other artistic venues as well). You can see some of her work here!

The Cowboy


This is the Second of a drawing series I did a few years ago. This one is featuring my buddy Dave Janzen as "The Cowboy".

The concept of the series was to to portraits of people and convey their personality by portraying them as an "archetype". I used yarn to highlight the archetyped character part of the portrait.

Check out the stop-animation I made to go along with it! It's pretty awesome! (that's what my mom said!)

This is the first of a drawing series I made. The concept of the series was to to portraits of people and convey their personality by portraying them as an "archetype". I used yarn to highlight the archetyped character part of the portrait.

This is of my good friends Dave Laframboise as "The Clown". There is also an accompanying stop-motion video showing it getting made. Enjoy!

Zomb-Me!

I was pretty happy about making this one. It's a self portrait (I'm a zombie!) I did a few years back. I love zombies, but I was feeling that was from school at the time. Art school=oodles of noodles. I really should do some painting soon.
