Nestled east of Main Street and next to the industrial area where my studio is located is Strathcona, my favourite Vancouver neighbourhood. The houses here are bright and colourful and I plan to paint a series of them. This is the first in progress, early stages, but the colours are starting to take shape.

A new piece I’m working on. I just finished all the first layer of inking/line work and now I can start painting it. This is one of the coolest locations of Vancouver - an alleyway next to Victory Square Park.

A picture of me with my recently finished “Darth” that I am really pleased with. I am excited to get this hung up. Upvote on Imgur if you enjoy it :)

I finished painting Darth Vader this week..cuz I’m a nerd! This piece is my largest yet, at 48” x 48” which makes me super duper excited. This was a project with the intent of hanging in my apartment and it’s certainly going to have a nice place on its new wall soon.

This is a little snail illustration/painting I made for a friend as a housewarming gift. He’s super slow and chill.

I made this sketch of my friend James from a recent walk around the beaches in Vancouver. I like the stripes of the shirt and his gesture in this image. This is a combination of ink markers/pens and watered-down illustration markers.

Somewhere deep amongst the shiny glass and discarded crud of downtown Vancouver, in No Man’s Land, one finds beauty amongst the shadows..
