One of four new paintings I’ve been working on, this one is about halfway completed, using collage elements and oil paint. Playing with the juxtaposition of space, texture and color.
I had a great experience testing out the newly released Cintiq 24HD Pen and Touch device. I was invited to the headquarters in Vancouver and was really pleased with the tablet. I tested out Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketchbook Pro, and now have serious tablet envy. This is truly a luxurious machine for professional digital artists and photographers. Have a look here.
The last few weeks have entailed some textile design work, graphic design, digital sketches, as well as working on some more music for the short film. I have also recently updated my production design page, which you can view here.

Monoprints I made last week at The Atelier Merdian. An interesting process of mixing inks onto a plexiglass plate then transferring to paper.
In the gallery below are the 13 watercolor collages I made for the art exhibition, “Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again” at Sloan Fine Art. All of these were painted on used MetroCards.

To Capture the fleeting moments of beauty in time can only be achieved by impressions, lines, approximations. One wonders about the nature of beauty—It’s timeless appeal, it’s power…It’s subjectivity. The changeless female form is an archetype in it’s own right—a link to history and mystery.
This watercolor is an attempt to try to emulate simplicity while honoring the female form. Inspired initially by a photograph I took, I saw the potential for a line drawing. Trying to achieve a consistent style is vital.
One of the the appeals of drawing is it can be simply an enjoyable, tangible thing with immediate results. So I have this preoccupation with Japanese fashion magazines, and find myself basing many sketches off the images that stand out to me. Sometimes these will evolve into more refined drawings or paintings, or just remain the way they are.
