MONSTER MADNESS FROM NEUROBERG April 22/2011
Monster Drawings! Did this weird cyber panel a couple of days ago but was to0 excited to work on this weeks WEBCOMICS PAGE that I decided to wait until they were both finished before I started posting more art.
LONGBOARD SKATEBOARD DESIGNS April 18/2011
MONSTER DRAWINGS SKATEBOARDS! The Monstrous Metropolis, Manga Movie Madness, Surreal Decapitations and Underground Comics! I spent a bit of time this weekend preparing a portfolio of skateboard designs. I’ve been doing some work with the LONGBOARD LIVING skateboard shop including hand-painted prototypes and limited edition boards as well as a ceiling mural for their new store. While the company is still grassroots, it is growing rapidly and on more than one occasion skate entrepreneur Ryan Rubin has requested a portfolio from me so I thought it’d be wise to have this ready (finally).
What I appreciate most about collaborating with Longboard Living and the longboard community is the positive attitude and activist philosophies we both share. The sport is a fun, healthy, and positive social expression that more and more young people are getting involved in.Kensington Skaters gather in greater numbers each week to take part in group tours and what better place for my art than cruising down the roadways with a bunch of crazy kids?! Skateboard Drawings Portfolio Here!
CITY OF GEARS ANIMATION TEST April 15/2011
MONSTER DRAWINGS! Just got these 3D graphic test sequences opened after some problems with my file converter. Thanks to the financial support of the Toronto Arts Council I am currently working on a set of "Living Paintings" or animated loops intended for gallery installation. For the "City of Gears" animation I am creating a dyptych expression comparing the the city from a distance and from ground zero. The first part (from afar) features the faceless metropolis overcrowded by anonymous denizens. This film is being rendered in 3D by graphics wizard Laurie Ronne. I'm doing the companion piece, the city populated by all the crazy individuals, using the old fashion hand drawn stop motion techniques. MORE MONSTER ANIMATIONS HERE!
CARTOON MONKEY for KIDS in the CONGO April 14/2011
MONSTER DRAWINGS! I made this Congo Cartoon t-shirt design today for an upcoming Canadian Ape Alliance fundraiser to support environmental schools in Kahuzi Beiga. My friend and musical collaborator Mark vanZyl is organizing the event and has rounded up a number of talented artists and musicians for the good cause. Mark is also going to the Congo himself later this year to work with some research groups (I think he’s studying monkey-poop but I could be wrong). Anyways I’ve just poisoned myself with a box of cookies and might not make it through the night. I'm not kidding. I tried to counter the effects with two apples and a banana but I still feel ill and can taste sugar in my saliva. If I survive I’m going to start the “Consumption” drawings tomorrow. The new works are going to be about food or at least what passes as food these days…
HEY APATHY! on WebTV April 13/2011
MONSTER DRAWINGS ON WEB TV! I did an interview for THAT CHANNEL'S Liquid Lunch with Hugh Reilly and Erin Ademoglu last Friday April 8/2011 (just got the footage today!). It was a fun opportunity to document some of my stories on video. I plan to edit more clips like the one here to put on various pages of this site. You can also check out the whole video on this FASHION MAGAZINES page.
NEUROBERG COMIC BOOK DRAWINGS April 12/2011
