Annex Zoo Show Tomorrow

Alright, nothing much to update today. But just a reminder that the Annex Zoo Charity show is happening tomorrow at 8pm. Me and jack are just in the process of finishing off the paintings for tomorrow.

In the mean time...i had the pleasure to win these two pieces from the art jam auction. They are hung nicely in my room now. :) Yes...i'm kinda a collector deep down inside..

Can't wait for the next art jam to happen.

A night of Art and Music

I will be contributing to an upcoming charity event of art and music this coming Saturday (March 1st) organized by my buddy Tyrel. A very exciting event as lots of great artists will be contributing there and lots of things are planned for this event.

Reading from his blog, it'll be a gallery/concert type event in Toronto that will be advertised on NOW and other places. Some big bands will be performing, some breakdancing, and TONS of artwork everywhere, an art raffle.

Definitely check it out if you're in the area!

It gets

I got an email back from the guys who used the cloud image i posted here already the other day. They replied saying it was only an 'accident' and they were too inspired to used the image. Heres what they said... "But please notice, that the Version which was shown in the web was an earlyer version, the Final version was modified by the Artist - but it was my fault not to realize that it was too close to yours."

"Please let us explain how this was caused:
We commissioned an illustrator to do the cover artwork for this book, but
the publisher was not happy with the look of Cosmo Hill. So we sent
different head of boys, which i've collected at our favourite artist-pool, to them to choose the right look. For the realization we
contacted the illustrator again an showed him there decision."

My friend told me to post this because it was way too funny. Anyways here are the new images they sent me, its too funny not to share i guess. lol.

Note: The image they sent me this time of the cloud is not even the original, it seems that they already painted over the nose portion of it...and colour adjusted the hair? haha

Vinyl Graffiti Show, another piece

So tomorrow night is the opening of the vinyl graffiti show. Its going to be a night of fun at the labyrinth.

Anyway, me and my friend Nick recently had the chance to collaborate on a 3-cover connecting piece, which will also be at the labyrinth show opening.

In other news, a group of us recently put up a small show at the student gallery at Sheridan. Photos of some of the work that was up is posted at the official Sheridan illustration blog which can be found here.

Again, the opening reception of the show is at the Labyrinth Store on Feb 9th from 7-10pm. The show will be up for a month.

So today, someone sent me mail about this...

Apparently, someone took one of my old fan-art pieces...and decided to flip it and mutilize it a bit to use it on a book cover...hmm...

I find it a bit amusing how they did it actually. Look at his sexy body with that red and black suit. haha
Now, this piece is only original art but the character is not copyrighted by me, so probably not much I can/should do anyway. Just thought it was a bit funny.
Looks like he/she decided to photoshop the other 2 characters in too...all have a different style.....

Heres a screenshot of the site. Wow this book is like 15 EUROS, I almost want to buy one.

The piece of Cloud from FFAC I did 2 years ago.
