Urban Sketching Summer

This year, I think one of my unstated goals was to avoid using the computer as much as possible while it was summer. Of course, when I have video work that makes it necessary to be on one, it can't be helped...however, if you're familiar with what winter is like in Montreal, there is really not much reason why I should be staring in a glowing box in a dark room during the nice part of the year. It won't be long before the sun sets barely after 3 PM and 30 minutes will be long enough to get a frost bite. So, I haven't posted anything I painted since intentionally and have an array of images lin…

Upcoming Exhibition: I AM NSCAD Group Expo.

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.

Fancy Pigeons

I recently took an interest in fancy pigeons after passively watching an episode of The Nature of Things. It was either about pigeons or evolution, but in either case it showed fancy pigeons and I immediately was surprised how varied their appearances can be with selective breeding. I already enjoy drawing and painting birds: I have a whole sketchbook full of motion sketches of seagulls, ducks, and geese I used to draw while I went to the park with my brother; I also have this massive painting of Canada geese that I'll take the opportunity to bring to attention again because it is one of my fa…
