- Winter Market Highlights -

Pixel & Bristle was a great time, as I knew it would be. Getting together with a group of such talented people is always an awesome, inspiring, and humbling experience. Here I am, next to my collaborative project The C Word (check it out) and the greeting card series' creator, John.

Check out Pixel & Bristle's Instagram account for a little glimpse at yesterdays market (here).

- October Drawing & Season of the Bad Guys Club 2 -

If you followed Craig Gleason's popular drawing challenge, you already know about the mind-blowing number of drawings produced by a diverse group of artists, both established and up and coming. I followed a lot of artists through the month, seeing other people's progress was a great source of motivation, and inspiration. Unfortunately I won't be mentioning every artist, but here are three of my top picks:

- Drawing Challenge Complete! -

The end of October means the end of another Season of the Bad Guys Club. This year was the second month-long drawing challenge put out by the club's founder Craig Gleason (find him on Instagram - @craig.gleason) and it brought out a hoard of returning fans and a wave of new artists looking to join in the debauchery.

This year, rather than keeping everything in a sketchbook, I chose to produce larger, single page originals in the hopes of stepping up details, improving my non-digital rendering, increasing productivity habits, and further supporting the idea that not everything I start ends up in my ever-growing "in-the-works" folder...

Stay tuned for more information on prints and originals for sale.

- Halfway Through, Looking Back -

I participated in the first Season of the Bad Guys Club at a time when my drawing habits were really starting to gain some momentum. A lot has contributed to the steps I've made with drawing the past two years, but drawing challenges like this have provided invaluable opportunities for practice and personal development. For your viewing pleasure, my drawings from last year scanned from my sketchbook:

The past two years have been busy and full of changes. One thing, however, remains unchanged; my inability to commit to and regularly update a single blog platform.

One of the main reasons I use social media is to build platforms which compliment my website by getting a little more personal about my work and creating a timeline that is more regularly updated.

So what does this mean? Well, I'm sure I will continue to flip-flop all over the internet, throwing secondary content in every place I can think of, but for now, I will keep updating Tumblr with more of my drawing, illustration, and photos, and this page will feature more 'news' and writings about current events involving me.

Enjoy!

A New Project

I'm working on what will soon become a risograph booklet compiling some of my favourite instances of pollination from around the world.

There's more information to come, but in the meantime, here are a couple of spots featuring one of the more bizarre plants I'll be presenting, the refflesia, affectionately known as the corpse flower.

 

Post #2

Almost one year ago I made my first blog post at this new location. This past year has shown without a doubt that I am a terrible blogger.

The website is updated with a lot of new work and with that, I think a renewed attempt at blog excellence is in order.

Enjoy these "Closing Date" images that didn't make it into the main website.

New Blog, Old Favorties

With so many projects going on this past year, I'm afraid my old blog fell from the forefront of my mind. Saying goodbye can be hard, but renewing my account seems a little harder, so here we begin a new adventure with a new location for all the matter making it's way out of my head.
