I am currently working on the poster for an indie. film coming out in 2016, called Astronomy Walkers. I've also been commissioned to illustrate some props. You know, when someone is drawing in a movie and on the sketchpad, there is a near perfect sketch? That's going to be me. Here is one that is already finished.

I had another commission that I considered quite unusual. I was commissioned by a PS3 player to illustrate his profile banner. It was unusual because this guy uses Noid, the Domino's mascot, as his avatar. I've never heard of Noid until this commission, so it was fun to learn about this detail and watch some really bizarre commercials as references. Here is it in action:

I was asked to make Noid look less goofy and friendly, and more dark and characteristic of my style.

I have been very busy studying French and working on setting up our new creative start-up, Stereokroma Creative Services. Please have a look at our show reel - that ate up some time too. ;) To say the least, I fallen a bit behind on updating my site while still producing lots of artwork. Hmm, what to do with all this art? I would really like to selling my new life drawings and any old artwork (like pre-2009). My old artwork needs a good home and it is not really useful in my portfolio for me --- I need to be showing recent work. I am not selling my figure drawings for much either - most of them are $35 at most. Feel free to use my contact page to get a hold of me for any purchases.

These drawings were kind of exhaustive. Sometimes it is problematic that Syn Studio life drawing sessions have models with too many props or too much/too complex clothing on for relatively short poses. I should perhaps try a simpler medium for this kind of work.

Despite a lot of things, it's been a good year for art. This year, I've made the most art since a key year in high school. I also made 2 complete videos, another 3 in progress, worked on 2 short films, and did a lot of my own photography. I learned to digitally paint better, and learn some basic skills in 3D. I've also had several commissions and in the process of setting up a partnership with an art representative. Gradually, I'm getting better at French.

To start of 2014, I'm actually going to show you old art. I was in the process of cleaning up a hard drive, and I found raw photos I took of my pottery two whole years ago. I said, "Ok. I think it's time I dealt with these." I would have taken some new ones that are bigger and sharper, but I use my pottery and some of it is has worn down or broke. So finally, the ceramics section isn't barren, and there's actually a lot more to come.

Also, I few old artworks resurfaced from my hard drive that I've added to the 2011 folders.

There's also going to be a film screening of one of the films I worked on in Montreal this month. It's open to the public.
