Public Sketches

Decided to pick up a Moleskine and do some public sketching. The paper is very nice on the pens.

Grad April 2008

And…………….. We’re done.
Sheridan Illustration program completed and now I’m on to new adventures.

I’m thinking I’m definitely going to miss it. Towards the end it became the thing I had imagined art school to be long before I ever went there.
– Life-drawing and then painting long into the night with close friends, buying pizza at 2:00am right before the plaza across the street closed completely, working in the studio for as long as we could and then returning home to sleep as the sun crept up (usually surprised by the glowing sphere on the horizon) This was followed by returning to school for class just after noon and then repeating the spectacle from the night before.

Show in Toronto

The show at the Burroughs building in Toronto just finished Friday evening.

Here's a picture I took of my displayed work right before we had to take everything down.



The grad book designed by Rethink and some really talented illustration students students:



Rebus cover can be peeled off and separated into individual magnets. There's a metal plate inside the cover so the magnets are able to stick.

The Flight of the Conchords

Over Christmas I was given the DVD’s for the television series; Flight of the Conchords. They’re quite possibly the funniest series/songs that I’ve watched in a long time.

It was a lot of fun to try my hand at drawing them.




Portraits of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of the New Zealand band Flight of the Conchords.

Portraits of Ellen Page (Juno) and Michael Cera (Paulie Bleeker) who play the main characters in the 2007 movie, Juno. The illustration itself was for a film review article as it’s recently come out on DVD.
