I put up some originals for sale in my shop! I haven’t tried to sell the original drawings before but I’m running out of storage space so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s really hard to get good scans of raw pencils but these are as close as it gets to what they really look like (the originals still look slightly better though). If you’re interested please check them out HERE!

Here’s a piece I did for the Registered Nurse Journal for an introspective article about the ways nurses deal with trauma and how that affects the way we perceive them. Thanks to AD Kyle Schruder!

My Tor piece is out today! You can read Friends ‘Til the End by Bethany Neal HERE. This is the first time I’ve done a 100% digital illustration, I couldn’t get that slightly-transparent ghostliness with my usual methods but it’s always exciting when I’m able to try something new for a job. Thanks so much to AD Irene Gallo!

A bunch of my illustrations are now available through Gelaskins as skins, cases and canvas prints! They have options for pretty much every device you can think of and the quality is great; I have a skin for my iPod that’s almost 10 years old now and still in good condition. There’s a ton of other great artists on there as well so be sure to check it out!

Here’s my piece for Light Grey Art Lab’s “Animystics” show opening on April 25! The theme of the show was spirit animals or guides, this one is a black heron that opens windows between worlds. If you’re interested in prints be sure to check out the shop HERE, you can buy 8”x10” fine art prints for $20 or the framed original drawing for $200 and a portion of the proceeds goes to animal rescues. Be sure to check out everyone else’s work as well, there are some incredible pieces in this show!

I finally put together a FAQ post! If you had a question it should be here and if you have a question please read it through to see if I’ve already answered it before sending an ask (I don’t mind getting asks but I’m not very good at answering them in a timely manner). I’m going to try and keep this relatively up to date as I get more but for now I hope this manages to answer some of your questions!

I found this in my files and realized I forgot to post it! A personal sketch commission of Nausicaa that I finished awhile back. I don’t take personal commissions often but Nausicaa is one of my favourite movies and I’d recently finished reading the comic so I couldn’t help myself. Maybe one day I’ll colour it but for now I’ll leave it as is.

fezzine:

Even though I saw her livestream (you can check it out here) the sketches for these, I was still completely floored when Ashley Mackenzie sent these pieces. Look at them! Oh and in the zine, these are printed back to back so that it feels like you’re entering the door - they’re beautiful and functional!

Also many congratulations to Ashley for being our third contributor in this year’s Spectrum Annual! So proud of you, girl!

My Fezzine pieces are out! I was so excited to be a part of this project as it gave me an excuse to finally finish one of my favourite games and make something about it with lots of other cool folk. Thanks to Kevin for organizing and putting all this together!

This poster was just released so I can finally talk about it! As far as I know this is the first time OCAD has chosen to use illustration for the GradEx poster instead of straight graphic design (when they contacted me I actually thought they’d mistaken me for a graphic designer) so I was really excited to work on this. 

The idea was about breaking traditions and moving past cliches to find new ways of thinking. More than anything I found OCADU to be a school of ideas. We were always encouraged to move past easy solutions to get to the heart of an idea to come up with something new. No self-respecting illustration student would settle for using a lightbulb until all other metaphors had been exhausted…so of course I couldn’t help but use it in this piece.

Thanks to everyone on the GradEx committee who worked with me on this! And if you’re in the GTA May 1st - 4th make sure you check out the exhibition!

Here’s my most recent piece in Scientific American for the article "The Hidden Dangers of Going Under" about possible lingering side-effects of anaesthesia. This one went through a few different iterations before we settled on the red one but I thought I’d post a few of the others to show some of the variations. Thanks to AD Jason Arias!

The show opens tonight so if you’re in the Portland area you should definitely check it out! If you’re interested in purchasing the original contact antlerpdx@gmail.com.
