This is a photo I took a little while ago. I was sitting on these stairs and all of the sudden noticed the diagonal lines and the tree shadows and how they worked together.

Pretty close to being done here! I don't know yet but I think I will call it "We're Leaving Our Shadows Behind Us Now", which are lyrics from the song "The Projectionist" by Sleeping At Last (you can buy it on itunes).

This is it from the reverse side. It has more depth from the back so I think I'll present it that way!

Some of these photos I think I posted before, but i'm having some internet problems here so sorry about that. Here's some things I've completed over the last month!

Projects on the go!

Hey guys, here's a few things that are going on right now. 

I'm going to do a really quick graphic on this old board just for fun. I'm going to make a large stencil of the swallow from "I Have A Light And A Love" but give it some phoenix-like characteristics. When in Rome...

A little progress on the scene from the park in Langley.

I'm not sure what to call this yet. It is part of (but a divergence from) the Recognition series. Thanks Luke for the pencils!

A different angle.

I've started a couple of new projects, and have finally been able to try out oils! I have really, really liked it so far. The rocks (only sketched) are a scene from chilliwack lake, the sky and tree is from a park in langley.

Finally completed this! Finished at 62 hours. Zoom in to see some details like gold in the hair and stuff like that.

A really fun collage I finished for Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

An icy winter session with a good man! Thank goodness for space heaters and nutella. 

Fun idea I borrowed from a typography book.

Merry Christmas!

Last work of the day: a snowcapped tag, like icing on the cake! #againvisualart

Repping #hanzaneskimboards in #ladgnar !! Handcut stickers for fun

Having some fun creating #againvisualarts

I wanted to do a super quick charcoal drawing inspired by 300. So many incredible moments in that film, hopefully more drawings to come.

Just a little experiment. Cut letters out of a magazine. It reads "Set us free".
