Screenprinting Workshop at the G.S.A.

Last weekend I taught a one-day screenprinting workshop at the Guelph School of Art, located on the third floor of the Wyndham Art Supplies building.  It was tons of fun and I'm looking forward to the next one in May!

Holiday Card Commission

I was commissioned to print my 'Shaved Kitty' holiday cards in black & pink for a fellow cat lover living in LA.  She claimed that the cat in the card looked identical to hers and she even sent a photo to prove it!

Culture Days at The Print Factory

Culture Days is a relatively new public art event that happens across Canada from Sept. 30 - Oct. 2 and I will be participating in 'The Print Factory", which is taking place on the third floor of the Trafalgar Building in Guelph.  Myself and three other local printmakers (Tammy Ratcliff, Pam Lobb & Lydia Nieuwenkamp) will be holding demonstrations of various print techniques, and if you bring a t-shirt or tote bag you can get the above image (designed by me) printed onto it! Click here for more details.

Buy me

I have added the limited edition mini-booklet "The Hilton Sisters" to my Etsy store.  The story was written by Jeff Maus and was illustrated by me.  You can buy it here.

On the side.

I was recently hired to print a small run of tote bags by my co-worker/fellow artist/new Aussie mate Andrew Frazer.  He provided me with the design and I did the rest.  If any of you out there are in need of an experienced printer for a small run of posters, tote bags, t-shirts etc...drop me a line:

when i close my eyes i see a million tiny dots

I have a few random projects on the go.  Some paintings of grass, abstract collages, monoprinting with silkscreen and these cmyk dot paintings.  They are mostly unrelated ideas and processes, but I can't help but feel that I'm on the verge of something new and exciting.  Or not. 

I'll keep you posted.

Heavens to b-ETSY!

My Etsy shop is finally up and running after a couple of years of hemming and hawing about it.  I've got three items up for sale right now, but I'm hoping to get some more stuff up there later in the week.  Go take a look!

Group Show!

Parts Gallery will be showing a few of my constellation prints in a group show this month.  I've included a few images of the prints below, which I framed myself before sending them off to Toronto.  It's the first 'professional' framing job I've done and I'm pleased with how they all turned out. Be sure to check out the show!

For Dad

For father's day I made a paper cutting inspired by an old photograph of my Dad as an infant perched on my Grandfather's shoulders.  I think it turned out great (and my dad thought so too!).  Below is the framed cutting, which is sandwiched between two pieces of glass.

Paper Cuts

So I've been keeping myself busy with cutting and gluing paper lately.  Here is a finished piece that was made for a UFO loving co-worker of mine:

Commissioned Screenprint

The screenprint above is a commissioned piece that I made using the photo below as reference.  I think it's about 9 layers or so and measures 11 X 14 inches.  I would like to do more of these, so get in touch with me if you would like an original print of your house!
