Ramping up for Fan Expo 2011!
Here’s a preview of the Banner that Jacob Johnson and I will have at our booth (A222! Come visit us!!)
and here’s a closeup of my half:
See you there!!!
So I missed out on having a table at Anime North this year, but those who were there may have seen me tromping around with my friends dressed in my t-shirts and a backpack full of clothes taking photos of cosplayers!
I’ll be uploading photos of our antics here. If I’ve photographed you, let me know! Unlike other content on my blog, these photos are fair game for you to use!
Until those photos are up, hope everyone’s summer’s going awesome, and I’ll see you at Fan Expo!!
So I’ve decided to just start painting really quick random paintings. As usual, I’ve given myself some rules. The main one being a 30 minute time limit. I’m sure I could do more and better in 30 minutes, but this is more just about being experimental and abstract, so although this may be the final image, i spent about 20 minutes painting something entirely different before wiping it and coming to this one…hopefully it’ll help me with my confidence when it comes to real painting!
…or it’ll cater to my short attention span!
either way, i’ll be making art, and that’s a plus!
So here it is:
The other big rule is, I want there to be a hint of a story somewhere in the image. I want people to look at these and have the cogs in their heads begin turning immediately. I find visual storytelling fascinating, and it’s something I definitely need to get better at, so hopefully these help!
I bought new shirts this week, and am working to print the new shirts for various orders this weekend. So if you’ve ordered, or are waiting for one, THEY’RE COMING SOON! and if you’ve contacted me about them, I’ll be contacting you soon to discuss shipping/meeting options, or to let you know when I’ll be able to get to making your shirt.
Also, the new designs aren’t here yet, because I’ve yet to find a glass cutter who doesn’t work the exact hours I work. SOOOOON! I promise.
That’s all guys!

This sort of happened one day.
It started out as just a random doodle to pass some time, and slowly evolved into what you see now. I LIKE IT!!! maybe I’ll do more!
The glass on my light-box broke : ( so I need to go out and buy some glass next week and cut it to size, etc. before I can make any new designs into t-shirts (ie. Glass Half Full/Empty, CatFight, Bar Fight). I’ll likely update you guys next week about that!
THANKS FOR READING! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

So I made a 40″x20″ poster for my nephew’s birthday:
His favourite dinosaurs are Baryonyx, Brachiosaurus, Utahraptor, Allosaurus, and Triceratops. So I drew this up for his 4th birthday! The most rewarding part was seeing his eyes light up when he saw it. The part that made me sad was that his absolute favourite dinosaur was Baryonyx, and the way I had drawn him, he didn’t really recognize him…which is slightly heartbreaking.
Anyhow, hope you guys like it as much as he did!
Take it easy, everyone! more drawings soon!
Alright! So this past weekend was FanExpo, and it was an absolute BLAST!
Here’s some photos!
My booth. I’m so glad my boss helped me make this, it worked out perfectly, and looked AMAAAZING! I’m not sure I could have gotten the amount of publicity I’d gotten this year were it not for his help and contributions. THANK YOU, CARLOS!
So as you can see, I put up all my t-shirt designs, (4 brand new ones included! all of which can be found on my new Etsy shop!) and of course, my prints, and sketches as well!
Here’s what I drew this year:
CAT-FIGHT! okay this was actually a commission for a wonderful girl named Lauren from Anime North this year. I put it on my table in hopes that she would come by, see her commissioned piece and pick it up, but instead, I got repeated requests by others to buy this piece. The result? I drew this about 5 times for 5 different people, in all different colours and shades that cats come in.
In fact, this shirt is next in line to become a t-shirt! and this is where you come in. Either email me or leave me a comment in regards to colour of shirt and colour of ink you would like to see these cats appear on! All suggestions will be considered, and the most popular one will become a real design!
next on the list:
Thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support at FanExpo this year! Everything went amazingly well!
I’ll be putting up photos of art I did and my booth in the next couple days.
