A bit of this and that

Thanks again to everyone who came to the Steamwhistle show this month! Yesterday was the final day, and as always I had a great time working with a great group of artists.

This piece is one I did for the Glenn Gould Foundation this week. It's rare that I try to do a full painting from sketch to final all digitally, but I had a lot of fun with this, and I think it's something I'll explore more in the future.

This is a piece I did for my Grandma's 75th birthday, a family tree featuring all of her descendants. I love my relatives, but boy are there a lot of them!

Smiling Antimatter pics

Thanks a heap to everyone who came out to the show last week! And thanks especially to Hyein for running everything, the rest of the artists for putting such a great show together, and Steamwhistle for being such great hosts as always.

Here are a few pictures of my pieces, if you missed out on the opening you've got until the 1st of July to go check it out (Steamwhistle hours are here). Sorry they're not clean scans, they're a bit too big to fit on my scanner. Thanks to Ilichna and Hyein for the photos!

Smiling Antimatter

Coming up this Wednesday at the Steamwhistle Brewery is Smiling Antimatter, a group show featuring some great Toronto illustrators, and me as well. The show runs until July 2, so if you can't make it to the opening, be sure to stop by some time, have a frosty beverage, and enjoy some great artwork. Here are the details:

Participating Artists
Vicki Nerino • Britt Wilson • Roben Nieuwland • Selena Wong • Ale Diaz • Ilichna Morasky • Ty Dunitz • Eric Overton • Hyein Lee • Franzisca Barczyk

Opening Reception June 1st, 2011, 7-11PM
Exhibiting June 1st - July 2nd, 2011

We heard the news. Scientists finally produced mysterious antimatter atoms for the first time. We don’t know what it means, but we know that the future is here. We live in a science fiction world, the world our previous generation hadn’t even dreamed of. We converse with people on the other continents face-to-face using video chat, watch movies on our cellphones and tweet our daily routine to everybody. How does it feel like to be living and depending on high technology? What would tomorrow bring?

“Smiling Antimatter” is a mixed media painting exhibition. Each artist captures the anxiety underlying the experience of living in a science fiction-like society with humour and carnivalesque grotesqueness.

Hope you can make it!
