A braided lady.
I too seldom post things that aren’t finished work for something or other. I’d like that break that habit. So… a sketch, cleaned up bit and such.
My Facts and Arguments illustration in the Globe and Mail today!
It accompanies an essay (read it here) about a lady who comes to enjoy the return of a nesting starling family to her bathroom fan vent each year.
Big thanks to Matt French!
A Frog Eat Frog World for Light Grey Art Lab’s Macro & Micro show, opening this week!
I was super excited to take part in this show! I had been wanting to draw something amphibious for awhile and while doing some research I read about the Australian golden bell frog, notable for it’s tendency for cannibalism.
There are a ton of incredibly talented artists taking part in this show. Check out Light Grey Art Lab’s online shop to see work by other artists and purchase prints, if you wish!
A fun illustration I did a little while ago for Canadian Running Magazine. It accompanies a story about a fellow who had moved up to Thunder Bay (Ontario) and had packs of local dogs follow him around on his runs.
Thank you AD, Dianne Kapral!
I had the pleasure of doing another illustration for the Globe and Mail the other day! I gotta say, any time I get to draw a giant stork and a puppy is a pretty good day in my books. Thank you Matt French for the fun assignment!
Froggy practice. Some reference sketches.
