A.C.E. Art Auction!


"Last Night" Acrylic on wood panel 
Here's a little painting I made for a fundraising art auction organised by Wyndham Art Supplies in order to help pay for kids to attend art classes.  Over 50 local artists were given a 6" x 12" wood panel and the theme of 'Space' to work with.  You can bid on my piece and many others here: http://aceartauction.weebly.com/

Posters for Red Brick Cafe

So remember back in February when I mentioned that I was going to be designing drink special posters for the Red Brick Cafe? Evidently I've been slacking with the updates, but here are a bunch for you to have a look at!

New printed matter!


Manning the booth!
So another great day of Art on the Street 2014 has come and gone and I thought that I'd finally share a few of the new things I made:



And I made a few new screenprinted cards too...

Feel better.

You're great, Pops.

Congrats on your new place!

Screenprint of the Wellington Coaster design

You may recall a few months back I posted about a coaster design I made for Wellington Brewery. Since the release of the coasters, I've received so much positive feedback and heard countless stories of people 'stealing' them from bars, so I decided to turn the design into a two layer screenprint.  The coasters won't be around forever, and if you want an archival, signed version of that design, please visit my etsy shop and buy one!

First layer printed and hanging to dry

T-Shirt design!

Here's a fun t-shirt design I got to do for Friendly Rich & The Lollipop People. They've got a new album coming out soon and if you ever get a chance to catch them live, you won't be disappointed!




'MY BAD' cover art

My beau Gregory Pepper recently released a new e.p. called 'My Bad', and I got to do the cover art! My deadline was pretty tight, so I kept the design simple and of course, weird. You can purchase or download the album here.

Long Winter


This Friday I will be participating in the final instalment of this year's Long Winter series, where I will be hanging two dozen iceberg cutouts that I've made out of foam board.  This will be my first stab at 'installation art' and I'm praying to the adhesive gods that the duct tape holds all night!
The show starts at 7pm at The Great Hall in Toronto.

Poster for Red Brick Cafe



Here's a fun little poster I did up for a local coffee shop called The Red Brick Cafe.  They'll be doing monthly drink specials until May and I'll be creating a different design for each one.  Stayed tuned for March!

Design for the Welly Coaster Series


Shakin' in her boots! My design for the Welly Coaster Series

I was asked to design a coaster for Wellington Brewery as part of their new 'Welly Coaster Series'. Much like their homegrown approach to the 'Welly One-Off' label series, they have asked 4 local artists/illustrators to design a coaster using their trademark boot and colour scheme.  This series includes coasters by: Marc Bell, Gregory Pepper and Michael Byers.

**UPDATE - Two colour screenprints have been made of this image and are available for purchase.  More info here.**



I have yet to see these in person, but I'm looking forward to the day I can rest my pint on one of these!

Diplopia 

My screenprinted picture book 'Diplopia' is part of a group exhibition in Detroit called 'In Print' showcasing neat zines and artist books.  It's happening from Jan 10th-Feb. 28th at Work Detroit Gallery located at the University of Michigan School of Art & Design.  Unfortunately, I won't be making it down to check out the show, but stoked to be part of it nonetheless!
