Giant scanners, is there anything they cant do?! well I'm sure theres a lot of things they cant do actually...make origami roses, play laser tag, uh...anything other than scan large and small documents...well what they did do, was scan this piece for me. Its supposed to be my conception of the universe||religion for my philosophies class--it is a work in progress though...i haven't gotten this whole "religion" thing quite figured out yet D:.

Thus far the year has proven to be pretty sweet, interpretive and i seem to be meshing QUITE well; this may in fact be due to a Mr. Marco Cibola or maybe its the shorter hair...who know!? its been going well is all, my ideas really seem to be coming together and the images produced are of a better quality. A sign of good things to come? ....i sure hope so.

Many thanks go out to my fellow chocolaty- textured brethren, Jermaine Hannam, for lending his photog skills.

Mr Dubeau, I hope this picture answers any questions, one would have.
NOTE: blur effect on paintings...yea i did *wink and the gun*

It's Darkest before Dawn...

Moderately happy with how this turned out. I think i'll go back into it and fix up a few areas, later.

The first piece is the final for our OVERheard/UNDERstood project. Still riding off the wave of motivation from summer (working on large canvas' and starting a lot of little personal pieces) i've been inclined to paint and work on alot more pieces this year; a few of us are hoping to get enough pieces together so that we can have a group show in a gallery by the end of this year, or next year ----all the while, an Artist Collective project is being put together (so aptly titled by a Mr. Gregory Dubeau) , while another group project is wrapping itself up (created by the voraciously motivational Juan Solon Carlos, most of the pieces are up here). We all seem to be feeding off each looks like this year should be a good year. Let's go to work.

Summer has come and gone and what a whirlwind 'aventure' it was (yes ladies and gentlemen, thats some french for yo' ass!) . This summer was probably the most eventful and characterizing summers i've ever had. Alot of it came out of change, which smells surprisingly good--- (see bottom for rest)
Here are a few sketchbook pages from my time in Montreal, among the number of awesome things that Montreal had to offer was great food (in particular sandwiches) and attractive people in transit...and attractive people in non-transit. I've come to the conclusion that the government is putting something in Montreal's water, cause the people there are 'ridonculously' good looking.

I participated in 'Art in the Park', which was great, i sold paintings and met many fellows artisans native to Le Ottawa. It really set the tone and motivation level for the summer, and i was lucky to have my family backing me and along for the ride, with a guest appearance by everyones favorite Jermaine Jerome Jackson* (Hannam*).

Numero 2 on the list of big changes, we moved! We bought a new home, which is a great place, im really excited to see how Christmas is going to go down in the new place. Right after that was said and done, i was shipped off to Montreal. I can't say enough good things about Montreal, working there was a great experience. I was working at Genesis Knowledgestreams , a knowledge governance company where i pretty much got an insight on to what goes on in the 'corporate world', my bosses basically took me behind the curtain and showed me the comings and goings of the corporate menage, which was really cool, i got to meet with some of their bigger clients (a la Air Canada, IATA, Diagnos) and got the scoop on a lot of up big things that will "rock" the corporate world. One of the things i was fortunate to be able to work heavily one of said projects. Overall, i couldnt have asked for better bosses and a better summer job.
