I've decided to stop being a snob and give ol' Robert Bateman a chance.

So like, I never posted much from that painting class I took in 2011 at TAD. I had to drop out near the end because I moved across BC to work on the Pony show. I blew up my life for the millionth time. Too bad, it was a pretty great course. It was online but live and taught by Jason Manly and Jon Foster.
I have so many versions of this I have no idea if this was the final one or not. I can see so much wrong with it now too.

I bought an Asus eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee slate tablet pc. It's a fancy toy that's making it fun for me to do paintings from life. I do feel guilty that I rarely uses real paint, and fear that I'll be spoiled by the forgiving crutch that is computer painting. But there's no set up or mess involved, which works for a transient wanderer like me.

My latest costume with leather mask for the annual party put on by the KHMR ski patrol. It's unfortunate name is Hung Like a Horse. But what can you expect from a bunch of smelly patrollers? Reguardless it's lots of fun and for some reason Golden loooooooooves it's costume parties! This year Five Alarm Funk performed and they were excellent. Skeleton corset and moccasins available for sale on Etsy. Five Alarm Funk's site.

I'm currently enrolled in a very cool online painting class through TAD (The Art Department), taught by Jason Manley and Jon Foster. Highly recommended. This is my wood stove, his name is Stubby Fucker. He can heat my pad to 40 degrees, ooooowhheee!
I've never painted from real life before, it's not easy!

This is my costume for Shambhala. A crazy and amazing experience that was. This is my third leather mask, which acted as a catalyst for many amazing events. Masks draw people in, and bring out different aspects of my own tangled insides.
Silly me didn't have anyone take photos at the festival which would have looked much better. A forest backdrop is more appropriate than my bleak apartment! I had to ham it up all my myself to get these pictures. What a dork I am.
Link to an interesting essay on masks here.

The original entry for this one was getting spammed big time. So I'll outsmart the robots and post'er up again. This is an early photoshop colouring excersise from 2006 or so. I remember it was pouring rain when I drew it.
New stuff coming soon. Who am I promising this to? Me!

People on Deviant Art seem to like my first minotaur but I've never been totally happy with it. I didn't look at any cow reference when I drew it. I don't like THIS one all that much either! But it's the only drawing I've done for a while now. I just moved back to the big city, Vangroovy BC to prevent my almost dead "career" from atrophying. It's going to be a good summer I hope. I certainly won't kick through any plate glass windows no siree!
I haven't unpacked my scanner yet so this is a lousy photo. Seemed like a good thing to do at 4 in the morning! Just got home from the Capilano...University grad show party thang. Good times!
Shit his hammer is warped. erg.
