Animals Idols

Hey all, I am so happy to announce my new Animal Idols!!! I have been playing around with the idea of wooden animal shapes for some time now and now have found a new approach to explore. There are six animal shapes in all and are cut from sustainable Canadian maple, and hand screen printed. Please follow this link to my etsy site to purchase them.

Pre-Christmas News

There has been a lot happening here in the background since my last post.

1. I am now working pt and doing Illustration and Motion Graphics.
2. I finished a two week show In Windamere a new housing development in south east Edmonton.
3. I vendered the November Royal Bison Art and Craft Fair. It was a great showing and had plenty of wonderful comments from people visiting. Thanks Josh, Vikki and Jeanie.
4. I have a new monthly show up at The Next Act Pub (n of whyte on gateway blvd s). Thanks so much to Saylish for the opportunity.
5. Recently I have completed a new painting, actually it is more like a repainting. I painted the river valley some months ago and snapped a quick photograph, then proceeded to paint a portrait on top. It was a retirement gift for a fellow that worked for the city in the river valley. I had so many comments about it that I should have taken better photos for prints. So I went ahead and painted a new version of it.

6. In addition I found a neat picture in the Globe and Mail of Walter Gretzky holding a image of my illustration I did for the Canadian Lung Association.

7. Also I found this great little post with my painting of the highlevel bridge and trolly.

I hope everything is fine with you all.

I'm in the Journal!!!

A slightly late post, but life is busy. The Monday after Art walk I got a call from Marta Gold, who had seen my work in Vivid Print and would like to write a story on it for the Edmonton Journal. I was so pleased that I am sure I rambled on for about an hour. She and Candice Elliott (photographer) came over the next day and we chatted and took photos, it was great! You can read the article and see some of the photos here. Yay!

2 Series Finished and Artwalk

I want to thank everyone that came out to Artwalk this weekend. It was really nice to hear from a number of people that they liked my work and that even some had previously bought prints from Vivid Print. It was super nice to have had the opportunity to give several of my prints new homes with wonderful people that came by.

At Artwalk, I revealed two series that I had just completed the first was the Mouse and Reindeer series, and the second was a painting series that I had completed painting of Cityscapes with Christmas lights on the buildings making up ornaments.

I had so much fun with the Deer and Mouse in the Christmas Seals project, that I have decided to work on a longer series with the two. Perhaps even make some chiristmas cards out of it. Here is the first one.

Lots of news

Allot of things have happened since I have last posted so this is going to be a bigger one.

First, I am happy to annouce that the Canadian Lung Association stamp is now featured on their website here and here. So make sure that you donate today and receive some of these stamps for your presents. And I want to thank Janis Hass for the opportunity.

Secondly A new poster show is up at Latitude 53, put together by a fellow illustrator in Edmonton, Gabe Wong. The theme for the show is "where are we going?" and this is the piece that I did for it and some quick iphone photos of the show.

And Thirdly
Prints are going really well at Vivid print, Thank you all for your support. I am currently working on Two new series, one is a follow up to the Edmonton Series, Edmonton II. The second is a Christmas series, I know a little early, but these ideas came from another project and lent so well to a painting series, I just wanted to paint them. I am participating in Art Walk this year and it is my goal to have them all painted by them, wish me luck!
