COME AT ME, BRO!


...and, we're back.


Here's an old unfinished illustration I went back and re-visited. I did some sweet Photoshop magic in an attempt to hide my hideous linework here. Look at that shiny, shiny hair.


I sculpted this a few weeks back. It was inspired by the fabulous Erika F.


Retro Robot, Wacky Wallpaper. Pencil crayon/ PS magic.



Here's a shirt I made for Steve. I just used permanent marker right onto the fabric. Kinda difficult, I really had to scrub the ink into the material. But, a nice aesthetic in the end.
The image came from a Sinister Spider-Man comic book which Steve chose. I used my light table to trace the image, and then inked it in fully. Quite the process.

If you're reading this, and have an idea for a sweet T-Shirt, maybe we can work out a deal.

...Hello?

- Marvel VS Capcom 3 is totally sweet. I bought it for PS3, even though I don't have one yet. -

- Still looking for work. Sigh. -

- Currently trying to polish up a few ideas. New stuff soonish, probably! -

- You gotta do what? I GOTTA BAH-LIEVE! -

My shoe is off, my foot is cold


This was drawn for one of my classes in college...


...but then we set it on fire. Our instructor encouraged us to spend as much time and effort on our illustrations as we could, but in class the following week... we would be lighting them up. Well, we didn't absolutely have to, but most of us did anyway. Get it?

It was kind of a statement, I suppose. A few things they tried to teach us back in art school are starting to make some sense now. One thing I try to keep focus on, is not getting "too precious" with my artwork. I'm finding it more rewarding to keep a brisk pace when illustrating.

eg: Don't spend too much time on one idea. Don't get too caught up in tedious details or craft. Walk away from the work time to time, come back later. Never be afraid to scrap what you've done and start all over again.

You know, all that stuff. Anyway, it's something I try to consider.

I did this for Mel:


It was her idea.

Here's a logo I did up for a business in Saskatoon:


Had fun working on it, too. Thanks, Leanne!



and now my story is all told.

Welcome to DIE!


Where's that from?


This is my favourite drawing ever, maybe.


Blah blah crosshatch... whatever.

Recently, I went to visit Calgary and the people that are there.

Here's some artwork they drew for me:


Melanie "The" Pope drew this for me. Apparently, she likes Team Fortress 2 a little too much. But that's okay. I dig the fan art she did of me!


Devon "Wiggles" Sandboe drew this one of pilot girl. Very cool!
He's really good at drawing mechanical/ technical things.

Devon, update your damn website already!

In other news, I'm working on something. I've been giving it a lot of thought and consideration for a while now. I'm not sure exactly how to present it... but I'll probably post pictures and ideas at some point. Just not going to say too much about it right away.

Here's a little teaser, sure I guess.


I'll post more someday. But for now, though... courage.


Skoobity-Bop!

Danger! Danger!


High Voltage!



Cartoon people, crammed into a page.

Done with ink, while drinking coffee.


Don't you wanna know how we keep startin' fires?

Nevermind, Posting More Old Stuff


It's the magazine projects...

I used to enjoy doing these back in elementary school. They're pretty embarrassing, I guess, but if nothing else they should be good for a laugh.

"Video Game Stuff" #1-3 I did from grade 5 to grade 7. If you download the files, you should be able to view little notations I left in the PDFs.




"Psy-ko Magazine" I did in grade 8.




Pretty fascinating stuff...
