I did a series of illustrations for Buzzfeed.com for an article about contracting tuberculosis in the modern age. You can check it out HERE! Tried a few new methods for these pieces and I’m really happy with how they came out. Thanks to AD Justine Zwiebel!

Here’s a few on my sprite animations from Dream Arcade. If you want to see them in action you can play everyone’s levels HERE. (I did level 23) Everyone did such an incredible job with this project it’s well worth a playthrough!

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!

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!
