Complex #2 available now!

The second issue of my comic book COMPLEX has arrived!

In this issue, we leave Terry and his search for the Beastlord, and instead follow the adventures of the Ducktectives as they teleport through the levels of Complex to the murky depths of Swamplex.

Will they find the elusive Xenotaur? Will Sully and Greta exorcise the demon occupying Greta's body? Pick up an issue to find out!

Also, this issue contains a new Blobby Boys comic by Alex Schubert!

The book is 30 pages, and it's worth every penny.

$5 CAD plus shipping.

A poster I just finished for Vancouver's Main Street Theatre Company.

I will have to add a lot more text and logos as the actual play approaches, but this is a preliminary teaser to entice the west coast crowds.

This was a hard one to come up with, as Beckett's scripts are so...abstract.

Anyways, I always like these MST posters because I am given free reign to try whatever I want. In this case, I decided to do almost everything on computer, something I've never done before. So yeah, everything but the text was drawn with my tablet. Futuristic.

It's not something I am going to adopt for all of my illustration, but it was fun to experiment with. Like college and drugs.

Many thanks to Daryl, Josh, Ryan, and Stephen. Dudes.

Montecristo Magazine

I recently did this for an article in an upcoming issue of Montecristo magazine, and let me tell you, it was a tough go. I'm quite happy with the final, but I had a very hard time coming up with it.

The article in question is about the Human Security Report Project: A SFU based think tank that analyses the changing statistics in organized violence throughout the world. Very interesting stuff, actually. The study has found that the number of armed conflicts around the world has decreased in recent years and that, despite what most of us think, the world is safer now than it was in the 1950's.

The art director mentioned that he liked the anthropomorphic approach I've taken in some of my images and asked if I could come up with something in a similar vein for this one. Long story short, it was a real challenge coming up with a single image of a human-like character that represents the fact that worldwide peace is more prevalent now than one would think.

I usually go for a short walk when I need to come up with an idea.

I took a lot of walks.

This one stressed me out, but I'm glad for the experience. Hey, if you're not challenging yourself, you're redundant. In the end, I'm happy with the image I made and I really appreciate that the art director (inadvertently) put me in such a pickle.

Thanks a million to Mark!

NUVO Magazine

An illustration I did for an upcoming issue of NUVO Magazine. The article is a humourous look at the tendency to use the 'football field' as a means of measuring large objects. Particularly glaciers.

I think I need to stop using that reddish-orange in so many illustrations. It's worn out its welcome.

Thanks so much to Mark on this one!
