Dale + Lisa

I stayed in Edmonton for a couple months in November/December this year to work on an illustration contract with N.A.I.T. I wasn't sure where I was going to stay, but word of mouth is a lovely thing. I was lucky enough to be connected with Lisa + Dale. Two beautiful people who offered their home to me for my last month there. It immediately felt right, and I still feel luck that I was able land in their laps. This was a little thank you picture that I made for them when I left.
Much love you two. You are the definition of bee's knees!

Big Ass Cityscape.

A recent commission that I'm working on. This piece started out as them wanting a picture of the house that he grew up in, in Ireland. And ended up becoming a 6 foot long, inked collage from their scrapbook photos of all of the places that they've visited. This project has been both intimidating and a lot of fun to work on. So many different types of architecture to study, sketch and try to fit into one piece. But god damn, so many types of architecture to study, sketch and try and fit into one piece...

This is progress from a productive weekend that consisted of 16 hours of inking and 2.3 hours of hand massaging mixed with a little claw decompression. More to come.
