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.

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:

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.
