Explored: Hunters Game

Posted on 28th February 2013 in explored

Hiding in the northern BC recently, naturally I’d wake in the middle of the evenings in frightful terror of wild beasts and gloriously epic battles of human strength and animal instinct… Or maybe I just watch a lot of movies.

My latest paintings are titled Hunters Game. These three paintings are an exploration of the animal inside of us all. Perhaps we adapt some animal traits just as animals may adapt some traits of humans. What would the world be like if crows sat atop their trees and picked us off with bow & arrows?

These three paintings were made with a mixture of acrylic paint, spray paint, charcoal, oil pastels, and tar pavement treatment. It took three evenings to complete the three paintings, which were painted side by side.

These items are for sale in my store.

Explored: The Preparation

Posted on 21st January 2013 in explored

During the summer of 2012 I traveled through Europe, and met a man by the name of Gabor. He invited me to his place and commissioned me to make a painting.

After we lugged all the supplies to his house, put up newspaper to save the walls he was afraid to get paint on because of his landlord, hung the painting on the wall so I could paint it, and turned on some music I started to paint.

This is what happened, it’s called The Preparation.

Dinosaur by Bret Taylor

Posted on 17th October 2012 in events

My good friend Bret Taylor of Howyadoin Graphics is an artist. He pours his soul into what he does, he lives and breathes it [not drinks, I know what he’s drinking], and puts forth some very original and unique pieces of work. His process of layering mesmerizes me.

The art show was entitled Dinosaur simply because all the pieces in the show were dinosaurs. It was held in a space down just off of Cambie and 4th Ave, in Vancouver BC. I liked it because being a Twitter’er myself, the show had lots of the tweepoles there which made it nice for me connecting with some friends I haven’t seen in a while.  Always fun.

I’m happy to see Bret has opened this page in his book, I encourage him to continue what he’s doing frequently. I was also super happy to see that nearly all the work he had for sale, sold, no doubt making Bret a very happy Bret. He seemed pretty excited about it at the show.

I feel weird about not having taken much photographs of his art work directly. Most of the photographs… all of the photographs are of the people enjoying themselves…. it is what it is, I guess. But! Rest assured, you can find a lot of the images on his site.
