Trap X Art Toronto

Greetings, My latest acrylic work was recently on display at the Toronto Trap x Art show at The Boat Restaurant in Kensington Market, Toronto. It was a hip hop/ urban show with fantastic music, body painting, and live art displays. I was fortunate enough to be invited to display my art along side other emerging Toronto artists. This was the first time that I have ever displayed my work in a freeform venue where I needed to bring my own hardware (easel, display grids etc). When I realized that I… Read more Trap X Art Toronto

Acrylic Portraits

My latest work is a study in portraiture. It was an unexpected leap to go from illustrating portraits to painting them.

I often mix up the details of a joke by telling the punchline too soon, or by laughing at the joke before I have finished telling it. I am better at giving witty remarks and comebacks than telling structured jokes. I always marvel at standup comedians who are able to recall hours of jokes and retell them… Read more Llama unicorn illustration

Illustrating comics with 3 panels

One of the things I like the most about illustration is that it allows me to express ideas in a diverse way. I have more freedom to explore ideas that normally would have been difficult to attempt with paint and canvas. Furthermore, with illustration I can use technology to copy and paste multiple sketches, change their size, and manipulate the scenery much easier than before. The above illustration is an example where I have used technology to manipulate a previous sketch of myself into a 3 panel repeat illustration. I… Read more Illustrating comics with 3 panels
