steak, salmon and a canoe and a cat.

Raul 20"x 24" acrylic on canvas $400
Delicatessen 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas NFS

i have been away from this blog for way to long i have not abandoned it , i am here working away.

these two are the newest canvases ive done, i have other work on different surface coming soon as well. i've been trying to push myself now, calling myself out "is that the best i can do? or is it me copping out?" most of the time i can go back in and make it better but i still like that "first-try-awkwardness" that you get when youre either really loose or really off that day , or maybe that's just me.

i got to use a big fancy digital slr to shoot these pictures, it makes so much more of a difference that i can't believe it.

Ya spur of the moment stuff is usually better. Why fix it if it isn't broken?

These look great. Bizarre as hell but still sweet haha.

I Hope all is going well with you.

Things are going pretty good man. I got a job at GANZ which is in Woodbridge which is close to York University so I'll be moving there. I'll be a concept artist there working full time starting June 1st. They make little stuffed animals called "Webkinz" that have a code on and when put into the website you can "adopt" a virtual version of your pet and do whatever you please to it. It should be fun.

What are you up to now? Planning on going back to school at all?
