The Anthology Project 2 is set to release next year and it needs a little help getting off the ground, and our lovely editors Nick, Joy and Sam have set up a Kickstarter account to help cover the initial costs. If you haven't checked out the Anthology Project please do. It is an absolutely beautiful book. If you donate $30 to the Kickstarter account not only do you get a copy of the Anthology Project 2 when it's released, you also get some snazzy buttons. It's just like pre-ordering your book. You can donate whatever you can, of course. In this book there's about 24 exceptional artists telling their stories, guaranteeing that this book will be amazing as well.
Please check out the website to see more about the project, including previews and a list of everyone participating, and give what you can to support the creation of another beautiful book.

Lately what's been keeping me the most busy a Schoolism class I'm taking: The Art of Caricature taught by Jason Seiler. I thought it would be useful to step outside of my comfort zone and try something completely different. It's probably the most chanllenging thing I've done in a long time, but it's been a lot of fun and Jason is a fantastic teacher.
Here's some of the work I've been doing. It's not great, but you can definitely see that it's a change of pace. It should be interesting to see how it informs my own work!

This is for a Canada Day show in Toronto. I had done sketches of beavers for a project in grade 10 to show the different levels of government. I thought they were hilarious, so I decided to revive them and bring a whole pile of Canadian stereotypes with them. Cool, eh?
Speaking of that grade ten project...

I just recently converted these guys (vegetimals) into what you see here. I take them around to the comic shows and hopefully I'll be getting them on an Etsy store in the next month or so. I'll also be making prints available to order!
Made possible by Rocket Punch Studios

Something I was working on for a show in Calgary. I ended up doing cut paper layers of prints, like paper tole.
The show is Sans Comic Sans at the Untitled Art Society, running Apr 22-24th.
In other news don't forget to check out the Calgary Comic Expo. Not only is the Anthology Project going to have a fantastic booth there but also be sure check out the talented Mike Perry and Nick Bellemore at their booth, I believe it's called RocketPunch. They will be selling some awesome zombie figurines, small army of Vegetimals I created last week (I'll post photos later this evening), and some other fantastic one of a kind items.
Depending on what a certain volcano is up to this weekend I may or may not be at the Comic Expo. Otherwise it's off to Paris!

I haven't actually finished an illustration in while, I wanted to just do something fun for me. This is inspired by a photo I saw of a man in a hot spring during the winter and also by a show that did a segment on snow monkeys. They have an interesting social structure, look it up if you're interested!
Also a piece just to celebrate the new year! (He doesn't mean to be sour, he just hates his hat.)
