In the RAID studio. Cover artist for Marvel and others. Designer of the new Captain Canuck, now busy writing and drawing the new comic series. More about me on the sidebar.
I’ll be at CALGARY EXPO next week, along with most of the Captain Canuck crew. Find us at Booth 524 or come to the Saturday panel.
My commission list for the show is also now officially open, please contact me if you want to discuss getting something.
I’ve barely posted any of my multitude of Dungeons & Dragons art, so I’ll start with these. From a thing on Stone Giants for a Dungeon magazine E-zine. This was the last bit of D&D art I produced, this is going back to 2011… still new to the digital painting.
Toronto finally has it’s very own hero, and boy is he pitiful…
The above art is my incentive pin-up for my pal Jason Loo's new project, The Pitiful Human Lizard! Colors by the ever-delightful Rosemary Cheetham.
Jason is a talented local writer/artist/colorist and cosplayer, and he’s making the jump to print comics with The Pitiful Human Lizard!
Set in our shared home of Toronto, this book looks stellar! It is packed with personality and well-observed research into the character of the setting. It’s the spiritual heir to books like The Jam and Dishman (you thought I was going to say The Tick! didn’t you? Yeah, maybe a bit of that too…)
Jason’s finished the book, and is kickstarting his printing costs, and as of today, he’s hit his goal and then some, so the project is a go! But you, you!, still have 3 days to participate and get yourself a copy, and maybe take home the above sweet print, or maybe even the original art, for you heavy hitters out there…
This is grassroots Canadian comics right here, (Like Captain Canuck! But different!) please give it a look. Toronto needs a hero! Even one as, uh, pitiful as this.
Some avatars I created for my good friend Eric (TheSEGAdude) Rist.
Eric and I first bonded in junior high as the two guys with SEGAs lost in a sea of Nintendo zombies. That bond kicked into high gear just one year later when Phantasy Star came out, proving beyond any shadow of a doubt THAT WE WERE RIGHT.
Eric now has a stellar man-cave and blogs about his ongoing hunt to own every Genesis and Megadrive game ever made. Nearly. Almost nearly.
I had the absolute pleasure last year to be asked to contribute to conceptual artist David Hartt’s multimedia exhibit, For Everyone a Garden.
The inspirational fodder for these pieces runs the gamut from Jean-Louis Chaneac, through Moshe Safdie (who coined the phrase,) all the way to Katsuhiro Otomo. And now you begin to see how this maybe came my way…
Additionally, the exhibit got a great write-up in ARTFORUM magazine, which I’m pretty chuffed about. And they name-check me, which I`m even more chuffed about.
Pulling out these two promo illustrations I did for Marjorie to help promote the release of books 3 and 4 of her Hunter Kiss series. Well, book 5, Labyrinth of Stars juuust came out and we’re talking again…
Unveiled at the Captain Canuck panel at this past weekend’s Toronto ComiCON, the first 3 pages of our brand spanking new Captain Canuck comic series, coming later this year, official announcement soon.
Lineart by me, colors by the amazing Jim Charalimpidis
