1. A fairly quick half page illustration I did awhile ago for PCWorld magazine - all about improving productivity in Google Docs/Sheets with add-ons. Big thanks to Liz for this one! Running way behind in posting new work these days - but lots of new stuff soon!

     

  2. A quick image done for Canadian Grocer about the growing sales through ethnic Asian supermarkets in Canada. Had a bunch of ideas for this one - one which had a dragon and would’ve probably been totally outrageous and/or just plain offensive - but for the image size in the magazine I think this was definitely the best choice and worked out well.

     

  3. For an article in Indianapolis Monthly that looks at a veterinarian who is studying aging rottweilers hoping to find out exactly what makes senior canines tick for so many years—and how their longevity secrets can be applied to humanity. Fun fact: Canine research actually helped pioneer the use of insulin for diabetics and blazed the path for anti-hormonal prostate cancer treatments!

     

  4. The corporate side of the oil industry may be a meritocracy, but it’s a very unequal one (as in many other industries) - with women being the minority. In order for women to fully succeed in these fields they often need to think twice about having children as it can not only put a hiccup in their career, but derail it altogether - as their immediate male competition have an unequal advantage given that they are not tied to the responsibility of baring children - nor have they historically been burdened with the traditional role of staying home to raise them. Though society has come a long way and things are no longer completely black and white - this is still a predominant issue. As a result, many brilliant women leave their place of work and the talent pool at large leaving employers with people who may not be best suited for the job. This article basically urges women to stand up and make a change from the top down to rid of fossilized ideologies about gender roles and the lack of accommodations that are made for women with children/families in those workplaces. ..I totally just made that sound like the most challenging article ever, but it was actually a really interesting piece.
    Had a bunch of ideas, but really wanted to keep it light - I originally sketched a giant baby in an oil field godzilla’ing oil derricks - but the a.d’s suggested I put the little guy on a desk and have him messing things about - so we went with that instead! Thanks to Colton from Alberta Venture magazine for this one!

     

  5. I’m extremely grateful to have been asked by the fantastic Ashford Stamper over at The Pitch in Kansas City to illustrate their cover for this week. Pretty quick turnover on this one - so I’m sorta left with that feeling that really wishes I had an extra day to really tighten things up and push things much further. But overall - I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out and I learned a whole lot about basketball along the way!

    **The first image is what I submitted and the second one is a version that I’ve now dialed things back a bit with fresh eyes to feel a little more cohesive.

     

  6. A couple quick spots for The Pitch in Kansas City - part of a guide to the Big 12 tournament: Andrew Wiggins, Melvin Ejim, Marcus Foster & just a tiny spot of Marcus Smart who apparently is the authority on theatrical flopping. I really love portraiture a lot and it’s something I’ve neglected for some time now as much of the work I’ve been making has been so flat and graphic… lately however, I’ve been really trying to push my range of image making into something a little more sophisticated and dynamic. So - expect more of that sort of thing soon!

     

  7. A small spot for Canadian Grocer magazine for an article about how Sobey’s recent merger with Safeway is hogging the better portion of the western Canadian grocery market - leaving less room for independent grocers. Not usually a big fan of including type in illustrations - but this solution seemed to work well! Big thanks to Lindsay for this one!!

     

  8. Here’s an illustration I did for MacWorld magazine at the beginning of the year that just appeared in last months issue for a piece on iCloud security. TONS of new work on the way!

     

  9. Seasons Greetings!

     

  10. Message on a bottle - As a guy who earns 99% of his air mile rewards at the LCBO, I’ve been confronted by the confusing landscape of wines more than once. This simple image is a nod to those who have made their choice of beverage based blindly on package design and not so much on the merit or quality of its contents. 

     

  11. Keep Your Sheets Clean - A revised piece from my thesis project. In more ways than one, clean sheets can indeed ensure a good nights sleep! The original rendition of this image was honoured in the 3x3 student illustration #7 annual.

     

  12. This is a personal piece focusing on narcissism as it relates to ones character and self-esteem.

     

  13. Flavor country is rife with warnings.. take heed.

     

  14. Can’t wait for fall!

     

  15. Just a really quick image I threw together as a commentary on American diets - aptly titled Red, White & Goo.
