Napalm Vapes

Custom logo design for an up and coming company, Napalm Vapes. That I have been working on, from start to finish.

These fine folks allowed me to have free reign over their design and I couldn’t be more proud of the outcome. And to say I am blown away by their response to the final product, would be an understatement!

Total time taken, {from initial sketch Nov. 2015, to completion Jan.2016} approx 4+ hours. Created on Strathmore™ 400 Series 80lb (130g) acid free drawing paper, with Faber-Castell 9000 design H pencil and Pigma MICRON™ archival ink pens.

If you are looking for design work, for yourself or a start up. Please don’t hesitate to drop me a line and we’ll see what we can come up with :]

Tarah & Perry

I had the pleasure of making some maternity photos, for my dear friends Tarah & Perry, this past Summer. The weather wasn’t exactly cooperative and we were certainly cutting it close with the birth rapidly approaching. But in the end everything turned out great!

These are just some of the resulting photos, a few of our favourites.

Remember that little project I signed up for? (Ref: This post) Well, it has been completed, and mailed off to the Brooklyn Art Library! Hopefully they have received it by now; and are in the process of setting up the swap and digitizing everyone’s wee gessobord™ works of art.

I cannot wait to see what artwork I shall receive, as well as being able to view the rest of the participants works. This really was a fun project to work on and I look forward to the next one!

The Ampersand Project

tumblr_msytzqBpb41qcd494o1_500

The newest project from Art House Co-op; A fun art swap!
You create a work of art under the given theme; this one being the Ampersand.
Mail it off, and then receive another artists creative work in return. It’s like pen pals for artists at the random. Pretty neat I think

Processed with VSCOcam with se1 preset

And today it has arrived! My ampersand project kit from the Art House Co-op. I can’t wait to get started on this little gem of a gessobord™.

If you haven’t signed up yet, you should! It’s going to be fantastically fun! Get yourselves over to the sign up page, found below;

The Mobile Photo Awards winners have been announced; and yours truly has made the cut as an honourable mention in the People & Portraits category! It’s not first place, but! It does mean that my chosen photo will be on display during the premiere at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art. Pretty darn fantastic if you ask me! Really, I never imagined that I would make it at all, let alone be in the honourable mentions selection with all these fabulous photographers.

“The winner and first runner-up for each category will be printed and framed for the gallery tour and that every single honorable mention on the shortlists will be on display at the MPA premiere at the SOHO GALLERY FOR DIGITAL ART in NYC from February 22-28, 2013.  So that means that if you see your image here today you are PART OF THE SHOW!!”

Such great work and truly, it is an honour to be included!

Queen of Hearts: A play by play

Queen of Hearts

Here’s a fun idea I had; How about I show the progress steps, a play-by-play, in the creation of Queen of Hearts! As I do tend to document and save images along the way when creating artworks. And I thought that maybe it would be of some interest to my fans and followers to see this progression. So here we have it, from start to finish, the work titled Queen of Hearts;

From pencil and paper…

progresssketch1

To the scanner and Photoshop;

I hope you all enjoyed this look into how things progress around here, and I will more than likely be doing this again from time to time.

Feel free to leave feedback, comments and/or questions you may have, I will do my best to answer them!

And just a wee reminder that there is still time to take advantage of the FREE Shipping promotion going on over at the Society6 shop, January 13th Midnight PST is the deadline! So go on over and scoop up some fabulous art for your, or a friend/family members, walls!

The New Year & New Prints

Happy New Year! Wow what a feat, we’ve made it to 2013! Crazy I tell you; I still remember the days when some of were just kids and thought by the time we got to these decades there would be hover cars or some such thing, Back to the Future {2} anyone? That’s what we thought anyway, but I suppose we still have a couple of years for that to happen eh? It was 2015 after all, ha…. Ah well since there aren’t any flying DeLoreans about, I bring you new photography prints to start the new year;

This Ship Is Sinking…

This Ship Is Sinking

And for the nature lovers;

Loggin’

Loggin'

Not entirely new, these ones. They’re from the archives, but newly published, never seen by anyone but myself. So new for all of you! I hope they’re enjoyed and that some of you will find them of interest to hang upon your walls.

To purchase prints, just head on over to the Society6 store and order to your hearts desire!

The Mobile Photo Awards 2012

It’s that time of year again, and once again I have entered… of course; The Mobile Photo Awards 2012!

About the Mobile Photo Awards 2012

The Mobile Photo Awards were founded to promote and harness the global phenomenon of mobile, or cell-phone, photography and art.  The awards are committed to presenting the art-form in galleries and exhibits.

The short-term goal of the Mobile Photo Awards is to celebrate the medium of mobile photography, the artists, the developers who create the applications and, of course, the beauty of the images. We believe that in order to bring the pictures into the public eye the medium must move beyond online photo sharing. While we are huge proponents of the online photo community we also feel that sometimes the images must be tactile, printed and framed, viewed on walls in a public space, and treated with the public respect accorded other art-forms. In order to achieve this goal, we have founded the Mobile Photo Awards in the hopes that the very best artists and images will be discovered in this manner.

The long-term goal of the Mobile Photo Awards is to continue hosting the annual awards, promote and produce gallery shows, and help raise the level public respect for our medium. We also aim to help educate and inform the art world that these images are remarkable and the tool used to create them is ultimately not as important as the images themselves.

Excerpt from their about information.

The prizes are nothing short of phenomenal!

GRAND PRIZE:
$3000 for MPA Photographer of the year!

Winning images go on the MPA Gallery Tour, Fine Art Exhibits, OlloClip Lenses for all category winners, Canvas Pop gift cards, Postagram cards, HatchCraft Bamboo Frames and more!

These are the three images that I have submitted, all taken and edited using my iPhone 4 and various apps.

Society6

Here we go folks!! Brand spankin’ new venture is now live! A few pieces have been added so far, and more are on their way.

One stop shopping at Society6!

And as I said previously; if there is a piece you’re after and it’s not in the gallery, please don’t hesitate to let me know of the interest and I shall get it up there asap!


Big changes and New ventures:

Just a quick note to inform all of my lovely visitors;

All pricing for photographic and digital art works has been removed from the entire site, soon a new venue for purchasing works will be set up. I hope to have this up and running within the next few days, with only a select number of pieces added. Of course requests for older works that are not present in this new venture will be accepted and reviewed, as always the aim is to provide you all, the viewers, the choice and option ;]
Also, this new venue will be housing some new photographic works as well. The venture over to the mobile photography, iPhoneography if you will, has produced some fantastic pieces. And sharing them with you all is definitely coming!

This new venue will provide an easy one click to a gallery where one will be able to purchase directly, and not {hopefully} have any confusion as to how to go about gaining some fabulous artwork for your walls.

So stay tuned and watch this space, new things are a brewing!!

Below is a wee iPhoneography gallery via instagram & snapwidget:

Über Awesome Project

Über Awesome Project

My current project in the works, the über awesome project, officially formally known as the über secret project, as far as I should say I think. Being that I have posted a wee bit about it already, and one is probably able to figure out, somewhat, what it is all about? If not, if one still has no idea what is going on here… good! I like a good secret just as much as the next person.

Regardless of whether or not it is clear what exactly the plan or goal is, this is still quite the awesome, über, project if I do say so myself… and I do! As I am quite thrilled with the idea and what I’ve envisioned the outcome to be, and of course love to be as vague as can be ;]

More information {read: previous postings; more in depth} can be seen on the FB page & of course twitter.

Stay tuned!
