I've working on the Damp Athetic film I did for my 4th year film at Sheridan. it's done already, I finished it, but there were things about it that bugged me. So? first stop, reworking some of the backgrounds to look better. So this is a 'work in progress' on the animated music video for Captain Kife. one of the opening shots!
I'm still plugging away at this, but I'll put an updated version up soon. Ish.

Just a quick sketch to throw up I did in about 30 mins...
And then a personal piece I'm working on currently! It's gunna be bigger than it is... I tend to draw big 'cause I like to put detail into these kind of pieces. I have a heavy hand, so it helps! I'll just mount this on some more craft paper. But I've been wanting to do a series of these Mardi Gras/Voodoo type of girls. So here's the first one? Work in Progress.
I do my own stuff inbetween the mountain of commissions I have to do to relax me. Commissions get tedious, as much as I love doing them! this round was mostly tedious due to myself; i just took too much on at once! but I'm hammering through it, and I'm not one to give up on stuff or back down easily. So! ... that's what tonight is about.
Moved into my new apartment! fucking -love- it. I couldn't be happier with this place! Lots of light, lots of space (14 foot high ceilings!) and right in the heart of downtown Kingston. I'm slowly building a base here in Kingston, getting more well known and just.. you know, getting the word out! I'm a big DIY (do it yourself) guy. So i'm also saving up for warehouse space for a studio next November. Goooood times ahead!

A portrait I did for my beautiful friend, Mae. Gorgeous girl, who I'm probably lucky that she's even able to tolerate me. She's an amazing girl, with such nice eyes and a killer smile.
I'm happy she liked it.
I'll be updating with a few more images soon, keep checking it out! Working on several between commissions, at the moment.

not so much a commission, cause I volunteered when my friend Nate proposed the idea to me! It was fun to do, but quick as well (internet and real life problems aside! eesh)..
So a very quick painting of Krampus, the demon who accompanied Santa Claus and sent all the naughty children to Hell. Check up on him if you're curious :)
This is a cd cover for an anti-Christmas cd full of wicked songs, commissioned to me and put together by my friend Nate Amey. A lot of people we know are involved musically in this cd, so it's kinda sweet. :)

Here's a quick view of shit i'm working on currently. I didn't put up the commissions I'm doing in this, all personal pieces... except the left one :) That one is for a client, but they allowed me to put it up.
Trying to get a load of Halloween art up and finished! got a new job downtown Kingston, so I've been busy. Next year, however, I plan on owning an office space to start a studio.

After watching the trailer for the game Limbo, I had to try my hand at the style. So that's what the black and white one is all about... very quick, but fun to do. Working on a quick story in this style.
The other is a character of mine named Israfel-- she's an angel, part of a large story I have, as are most of my characters.
Done to destress between commissions.

Some shirt designs I was commissioned to do by the band Captain Kife. It was their ideas, and I was just supposed to do 'em. You can obviously tell what the first one is based off of. :) The second is the name of their album, haha.

This was for my boss/high school buddy Jake's wife Sue. She had a design already, wanted me to spiff it up and make it better, and so I did this colour spread for her real quick!
She's getting another one too, of one of my chicks on her shoulder. :) Designing that now.

She's not really. But it's just fun to call someone a Pirate Hooker.
FINALLY, SHE'S FUCKING DONE.
I've been working on this girl for jeez, 3 ears. Updating the style, painting... it's sad though, that my digital painting skills are getting better than my painting skills. I'll have to do something about that.
I haven't gotten a name for her or her cat, but I've had some suggestions.. if anyone else does, I'd be all about hearing them!

Not bad for my first try, I think...
I've known this girl for a long time now, but only recently having moved to Kingston have I got to spend time with her. She's given me a hell of a lot of inspiration . She's pretty, and is fucking funny. And has some of the best movie tastes out there! So this is for Lisa. Glad you liked it. :D
Spent a lot of time and threw up a grid system to get things accurate. Trying to get my digital painting skills better. Slowly getting there... will get better!

Let's see here.... two life drawings from a session out on Amherst Island... I get to work with some amazing artists! It's great seeing how they work
And one picture I quickly painted up between work... so like.. 45 mins plus a little extra to do the background, I think.
That one is based off the song "Violins" by Joey Cape/Lagwagon

Been practicing other peoples styles... got influenced by this guy:
Check his stuff out, french artist, amazing-- my friend Andre had posted up about him on Facebook.
He had a series of drawings done in just pink/black/white so I wanted to try my style in that colour scheme. Not bad! Kind of a boring pose, but hey

Gotta work on my landscapes more, but this had to be done within 2 hours and the person liked it. just wish I could of spent way more time on this :P She had given me photo references and how she wanted it. And she was happy with it! so, I can't complain
