Ode two, I do?


I'm always a little hesitant to take on commissions these days, it feels like a gamble half the time. In some cases the direction can be so heavy handed that it really feels like labor. This was not one of those cases. The level of trust and freedom was great; given enough guidelines that I could build a nice box to work in and out of, and I was allotted the chance to pay homage to my favourite brotherhood, the Pre-Raphealites.

graphite on BFK Rives, 20"x21"



I tried to consistently document the process of the piece, you can see some areas where I get caught up in a certain nuance and ultimately have to scrap it to make the image work as a whole.


I'm working on a few more of these dream projects right now. I can't wait to share them with you.
