I know, I haven't posted on this blog like forever...

This is a commission piece I did that will be used for Joe Canuck and Canadian Joe Convention websites. Apparently, Hasbro allowed us the rights to use CC which is pretty sick!

Rex 'n Stuff

Here's a pinup that is going to be in the next Rex Libris trade. It's scheduled to be out soon. I really had fun drawing the nazi zombies!

This is what Medicine would look like if i had done it in the 90's. Wanted so badly to throw in a lens flare or two but i just couldn't find the right place to put it.

Hot Dog Carts & Huggin'

I've been busy working on a children educational book, so I haven't had a chance to post anything. But now that I'm finished I have the free time. So check out these illos I've done for The Canadian Sportsman. The first one is an article about this guy who hires this crazy woman and she gets her husband to intimidate him because he's late on giving her paycheck.
This one is about this guy who meets up with an old buddy every year at this horse racing event.

Some more stripmalling

A few final things done for Stripmalling (out this coming spring). The first two are freeze frames following protagonist Jonny's parents and his brother after the events of the novel. (They worship different gods.)

And then, an illustration for an excerpt of the book for Broken Pencil. The excerpt was much more graphic than this image.

I'm Rich!

My latest illustration for The Canadian Sportsman. The article was weird and difficult to read because it was written in the style of the 1920's. But the gist of it was about a guy who was lucky and kept winning.

For the sketches they wanted the main guy in the middle of a crowd of sad people with no money. So I came up with these sketches.

Signed and approved by Mr. Winkler himself at the Toronto Fan Expo.
What a nice guy.

Lil' Brother

Recently, This Magazine asked me to illustrate an article about the new Cory Doctorow book, Little Brother. The writer compared it (unfavourably) to Ferris Bueller's Day Off meets 1984. So I came up with some sketches.

The dude in this second one is supposed to be Michael Chertoff, Director of Homeland Security.

And this final sketch refers to the 'freedom' fought for by the young scamps in the book as more of a 'freedom-to-stay-up-and-party', rather than, say, the right to vote or protection from cruel and unusual punishment.

They liked the awesome dude with sunglasses the best, and he became the final colour illustration:

Nice Trip!

Check out this piece I did for the Canadian Sportsman. I finished this one a while back, it's just been difficult to find the time to post it. The article was about this horse trainer who had many quirks. One of the quirks was how he would train the horses to get into the stables by pretending to trip over his laces. I know, weird.

In this sketch I wanted to show a standard portrait of all the horses he trained.In this one, I showed the part in the article when he would do the "trip over his laces" trick. I was going to just send these two sketches...
... but I decided to do one more and i came up with this one. As you can see the editor really liked this one.

In the sketch there was a border, I decided to take it out. Looks way better without it.

Parachute Party

Check it out, this is the latest illo I did for The Canadian Sportsman. I really like how this one turned out.

In the first sketch, the article wasn't too clear that it was harness racing (plus it was dated back in the 1970's) so I just assumed that the rider was riding horseback. But I was wrong.

So I fixed it up. The editor wanted to show the part in the article where the trainers come in and slowed the horse down with a parachute. This sketch is pretty much what the final illo looks like. The editor dug this image.


There you have it. Enjoy!

On A Plane

Here's another illo that happens on a plane. The article is about how the writer dislikes making small talk with people on planes. So she decides to tell lies. It's pretty funny.

In the article it mentions that the writer gets air sickness and the passenger beside her just keeps on yapping. The image of her looking ill didn't go over well with editor. They wanted me to concentrate more on the lying aspect.

So there ya go! I made it looks like she was bragging about herself, in a sense she is. In a lying sort of way.

I just finished this theatre poster for Theatre by the Bay. It's for their Cinderella play that's for kids. I really have fun doing these posters. Here's my process:

They wanted the Fairy Godmother to be a bit smaller, she seemed to be dominating the poster. The wicked step sisters were too scary looking so I had to change them. Also they preferred that Cinderella's hair was up in a bun.

Before moving onto the inks, they wanted the bottom of Cinderella's dress to have a flower pattern.
