Here’s a little something I whipped up for Alexis’ birthday this year. Probably one of my favourite things I made, and that’s not just because my titties are all over it.
June already, huh.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a backwash of photos, and since I don’t have that much new work to show, here’s a mostly chronological collection of snaps starting in December 2015 up until this past Sunday.
Growing up, the nearest worthwhile park was a 40 minutes bus ride away. It had a zoo with iron bar cages, a century-old carousel that made your hands smell like metal, and pony rides. It was where I learned to ride a bike without training wheels and discovered my love for bears and cotton candy. It’s […]
More than anything, the news of David Bowie’s passing fills me with tinges of sadness for my baby brother who didn’t get to experience our parents the way I did. Before the drugs, before the dischord, before the weight of their impending adulthood manifested itself, there were weekend mornings spent on the road to anywhere, […]
If I were to sum up 2015, it was definitely Moonlight Sonata (1st and 3rd movements) with a dash of Alone Again, Or, a soupçon of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, and a big, heaping shovelful of Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark). Something like anxious melancholic nostalgia and a longing for something/one I didn’t […]
Who doesn’t love a good visual pun?!
Well, if everybody = 14 folks, that is.
Unless you’re one of the handful of people who are close to me, you would have no idea that my life is run on impulse and middle-of-the-night needs to learn/try something new. Combine that with my tendency to hyper-focus on a task1, and the near impossible amount of bees in my bonnet, and you end […]
I did it! The Solipsist Tarot’s Major Arcana is complete! *confetti* The cards have all been digitised and colour-corrected, and are now at the printers for proofing! With any luck, they’ll be back sometime next week and they’ll be so good, I will be able to shoot them properly and put them up for pre-orders […]
I have no idea how or why, but sometime in the middle of painting Panda Man parts for another one of those automatons, the urge to to make a popup book about a man-bear going on strange adventures took hold.
Down to the wire now! Two cards left. Anybody else as stoked to see these finished as I am?!
If there is one thing I’ve learned since I’ve started this illustration malarkey, it’s that besides my affinity for painting MMA fighters doing silly things, I also love nothing more than to paint people and things wearing costumes while in peculiar situations.
Surely I can’t be the only one with Perfect Sunday fantasies, right? You know, slowly waking up, exchanging sweet nothings with whom/whatever (I won’t judge) is sharing your bed, sprinkle in a bit of fun, perhaps some breakfast even…and if I’m feeling really French, a luxurious cancer stick. Because if everything went according to plan, […]
I’ve been wanting this fight to happen for YEARS and when it was finally announced, I could hardly contain myself. There was so much GLEE coming out of my pores, I turned into an insufferable asshole for a good 2 hours just yapping about it to anybody within earshot. Except when yesterday came around and […]
I’ve been saving a collection of tunes to play at a special fella for when the going gets…going…for a little while now. It’s the kind of mix that you use as a litmus test: either they love it and get down, or they think it’s weird and skedaddle into the sunset forever. I haven’t tried […]
First, here’s a new Auditory Whiplash playlist. It’s about all those times things didn’t quite work out, for whatever reason.
The closer I get to finishing the Major Arcana, the more daunting it becomes. I don’t know if it’s because I’m over-thinking the last few, but it suddenly feels like a harrowing task! It also doesn’t help that I’ve been just stupid busy with work stuff, picking up some freelance work in an effort to […]
And 4 more. Half-way done! Once I’m done with the Majors, I was thinking of maybe having a few sets printed for my (currently) empty Storenvy shop? Not sure if it’d be of interest to anybody, but I figure I’ll gauge that once I’m closer to them being done. Set I • Set II
