This is a collaboration between me and Glen Craig. I took an old sketch of his and inked it. We have known each other and been drawing together for nearly twenty years throughout a few different levels of schooling (that sounds so strange) but we have never worked together on anything. Glen has worked as a tattoo artist in Maple Ridge for nearly a decade now and is currently on the road covering Australia in awesome work. You can see some of his work here:

Both these pictures are painted with just indian ink and water on watercolour paper. The Gargoyle Bird is the oldest piece I will put up on this site, I finished it in grade 12 and it is the only piece from high school that I am still really proud of and that holds up among my current work. The other piece is about three years old and inspired by the HBO show Carnivale. Just a midget looking for his place in the world.

Here is something new and very different for me. Inspired by Daniel Danger's work, my favorite concert poster artist. His work is completely different then anyone else going stylistically and conceptually. You can check out his posters and working precess at:

I have an illustration of a skull featured in the newest issue of I Want Your Skull. This is zine that collects some of the coolest illustrations by some amazing artist. Look up anyone of the people featured in this issue and you will be impressed by their work. This is a really great deal for the money and its limited to 250 copies so if you want one order it soon.
This was from a pencil sketch I did about two or three years ago but there was a different body that I really wasn't happy with. I really liked the idea of the three fingers for a head and the distorted mouths for hands and I always wanted to redraw this. I really like the way the new body looks, the whole creature is a clusterfuck of elements that shouldn't work together but I think the colour really holds the piece together.
