So maybe some of you have seen my old online stores... I've been looking for a good online solution for some 5 years now. I finally bit the bullet and plunged into making my own store by hand with Woocommerce and WordPress. It was pretty confusing at first, but I figured it out and I am extremely happy with the result. I've also changed my pricing structure to the square-inch method of calculating art prices. It is now very easy to buy my original artwork - no need to email me, phone me to inquiry about it and the prices are consistent and right in front of your eyes. As I'm not represented by any gallery, 100% of the profit goes to me and back into my art.

Here is my new store - check it out! Lots of artwork on-sale, even up to 70% off. I am trying to make space in my portfolio (considering it's all stored in my tiny apartment) for new artwork. It also makes me sad to have all this artwork locked away and not looked at. I'm sad I can't hang it all on my walls...not quite rich enough to frame every single piece. I really would like it all to have a good home. Please, if you can't buy anything, at least share my store for me so someone else might. Make sure to check out my page about why you would want to buy art.

Now, business end aside... I have new artwork added to my Visual Art galleries here. One is a brand new larger watercolour - as it's explicit...you can find it under the explicit category in my gallery.

Another artwork I missed mentioning was my submission for Self Portrait Day this November 1st...you may have seen me mention it on social media.

Here is another artwork - very small pencil drawing of one of my original characters I've had for as long as I've been creating art. When I was a kid, I was way more obsessed with dragons... the back of my bedroom door was covered in dragon print-outs, and I had a collection of dragons on my computer that I think had some 3000 images. Naturally, I wanted to make a character that was half human and half dragon. I drew this for fun, but I guess it goes with a short story I am writing...I may or may not ever finish it or show it to anyone.

I'm excited to announce one of my comics will be displayed during the I AM NSCAD group exhibition at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in downtown Halifax. The work will be up for sale, and a percentage of the profit goes towards NSCAD scholarships - which I have benefited from myself, as a Harrison-McCain Entry Scholarship recipient. I don't have official exhibition invitations or anything yet, but you can see a small blurb on the Anna Leonowens website here. Put it in your calendar if you are in Halifax.

Also, both of my short fiction films have been just shown at this new little festival. Check out Inclusiv'Arts on Facebook.

I'm going into surgery tomorrow, which is hopefully true because it's already been delayed and it was cancelled last time. I've been working on two things as I wait.

As I'm completely obsessed with the Witcher series, I made one 2 page comic. I'm probably going to do more as I have some ideas banked, as well as fan-art based on the books. I'm absolutely overjoyed by how well received this comic was by Witcher fans. Man, I missed the world of being a series fan!

Here's the comic:

Video Game Logic - Gerald & Imlerith #1-2Two page satire comic about the video game Witcher 3, which allows you to heal your player by letting you consume food in potentially unreasonably large amounts and at unreasonable times. Watercolour, ink on watercolour paper. Each original page: 15"x10", formatted for small scale. ~2015

Number 2: I am putting together a photo retouching portfolio. I'm pretty much over trying to do concept art. Generally, I don't identify with the community and I find the work itself to be stressful and exhausting. Photo retouching is very similar to colour grading, which I love doing. So far, I've enjoyed doing this so much it feels addictive. I've also decided I am most happy doing several creative tasks (probably "ADD"), so if I can do illustration, colour grading, photo retouching as work - I am happy. I only have a few images so far, but here's one I am very happy with:
