Canzine '09!

Howdy! I was at Canzine over the weekend, a Canadian festival celebrating indie zines, comics and small press. At my table were my graphic novel "After June" and prints of the Food Girls including the 2 new ones (Candy Apple + Lollipop).

It was great fun meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones. Always a nice treat to be immersed among talented artists!

The event took place on November 1 '09 at the swanky Gladstone Hotel on 1214 Queen St. West, Toronto. Thanks to everyone who came!


Fashion Girls

Sketching is fun! I'd like to turn some of these into finals for a series. I've been wanting to explore some of my favourite subjects like fashion, dance and movement and can't wait to combine them all!

These are some sketches depicting those very things. Oh how I adore lines, shading and simple textures. The last one is inspired by memories of going out partying with girl friends and having a silly ol' time. I think some of them look a bit drunk, haha.

2 New Food Girls

These are two brand new Food Girls created for The Side Show, a carnival-themed art show with my collective Not An Octagon. I wanted the girls to evoke memories at the carnival candy stand with the thrill of a sugar rush.

The Side Show continues to Oct. 10, 2009 at 2ndHalf Gallery, 250 Queen Street West, Toronto.
