I just stumbled upon your work while looking up illustrations and I love your pieces!!! How do you go about making them?
Hey friend! I clear-prime wood panels, then i draw with permanent ink markers. I paint acrylics on top of that, then i varnish the pieces after.
I drew a 4 x 4 foot picture of Darth Vader over 5 days (13 hours total). I took a photo every 60 seconds, and streamed them together into a stop motion video of the drawing coming to life.
This is a commission piece I just completed. It is a very recognizable icon in the downtown Vancouver/Gastown area. It is a very heavy iron/steel sign that slowly rotates on top of a pedestal on top of the old Woodward’s department store.
This is my last of three bird paintings for a show next month. They’re fun and little paintings, and I got to mess around with colour combinations a lot.
I painted this for my buddy for his birthday. I like making birthday art for friends on their special days.
Here’s my second of three works for the Anonymous Art Show at the North Van Arts Council, happening next month. I’m making a set of three small bird works. I’m having lotsa fun with the colour combinations :)
My friend’s birthday was on the weekend, and he’s a huge fan of Aqua Teen, so I painted this for him as a gift.
This is one of three images I’m creating for a show next month in North Vancouver. The gallery is right around the corner from my house, and its a big show with hundred of these size (8” x 8”) paintings for show/sale. I’m really excited to attend as the place will be packed and it’ll be exciting to see that many paintings on the wall.
Here is a new painting that is almost finished. I’ll be finishing it tonight at the H’Arts for the Homeless Fundraiser at the Imperial on Main Street, where it will be live-auctioned afterwards to raise funds for the Lookout Society.
This alleyway runs parallel to Main Street, in between Pender and Hastings. Just to the left of the opening of the alley is my old studio at 165 East Hastings.
This location is very familiar and meaningful to me.
I painted this for a nice fellow in Toronto. It’s a cool profile shot of a tree frog that he selected. I had a lot of fun with this piece. I did the drawing in a park by the water in North Vancouver in the summer, then painted it in my studio while watching Back to the Future part 1 and 2 (finished it before I could get to part 3).
Stoked with the final product.
