This years garden… (So far)

This years plant life in the garden & around the outside areas; 

These beauties were added to the front garden this year, as last years plants didn’t survive… Or at least I think they are done. Anyone out there know, if when your Hydrangea is just dried sticks, it can be revived?

I must say, I ABSOLUTELY adore Hydrangeas. They are indeed the best flowers! There are many planted in various parts of my outdoor space. Some have no blooms though… Specifically the back garden, those were planted last year as just wee babies, but are growing fiercely!


And this lavender, say what! Fantastic little purple pineapples, I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.


For good measure, some oh so wonderfully red Dahlias were added this year.


Don’t forget to check out the Facebook page and instagram! Things are coming soon!


One more for today; after battling the wind and sun, having a particular vision in mind, and failing to meet it… A photo of a rose.






There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.

Project Sphynx: Progress

Project Sphynx; Progress.

Laying some ink on the ole Sphynx; Always a tentative moment!

Rage, Rage…

Nothing new on the old creative front. Currently puddling and frustrated.














So I went and made this wee placeholder, after going to a friends cottage and messing about with the fire.

(I suppose this is actually something creative, ha!)

Project Sphynx: Part 1&2

Current project, Sphynx; Drawing for myself.



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.

Skulls &… Death & Life: The Ampersand Project


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!

Skulls &… Death & Life:


The Ampersand Project


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

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;


And then get creative! ;]

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…


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!

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!
