Chick + Crazy = GOOD!

Hey, just finished this illustration for The Canadian Sportsman.
Instead of a horse going wacko like the last time, it's a girl.

Observational drawing - Deadwood style!

I miss observational drawing. I haven't done any for so long. So I took a bit of a break from my assignments and picked up my pencils.

Tyrone and I just finished watching the first season of Deadwood. I love the costumes, characters and palettes. I've never been one to get into westerns, or period pieces, period. But I'm really digging this show.

I did a bit of re-watching and decided to draw Seth Bullock, played by Timothy Olyphant. Not only is he VERY easy on the eyes, but Seth also hails from my 'hood - Etobicoke, Ontario! (I wonder what Etobicoke was like back in the 1870's)

In the background is Alma Garrett the widow and the orphan Sophia. She's a bit of a homewrecker but I was totally rooting for them to hook up. Can't wait to see what the next season has in store.. especially when Seth's wife arrives to the camp.

February's giveaway painting

Lately I've had a lot of assignments with choppy water or stormy skies. I've really enjoyed them so I decided to repeat these themes in my Facebook group giveaway painting. Poor little mouse.

A Horse of Course

Yep, it's another horse illustration. This time around I was asked to do a logo for Grand River Raceway in Elora. The logo is for their new promotion Geek Squad which is trivia questions for horse racing geeks. The more questions you answer the more points you receive and then you win a prize.

Panic! at the Lab

Here's an illustration for an upcoming issue of This Magazine. It's about the dangers of genetically altering bacteria to become antibiotic-resistant. The art director wanted to give it something of a B-Movie feel.
