Édition spéciale: Les Galipeaus

Hiya folks!

Well, once again, I feel the need to start off by apologizing for being so sporadic in my blogging.  But hey, keepin' busy is my middle name, and as I've mentioned a zillion times: school ('nuff said).  Apparently my brain has gotten bigger in the last little while because I've been getting some ridiculously good grades this semester (and I've always gotten good grades, so if I say they're ridiculously good, well, yah, we're talking Powder-style brain power).  I'm only mentioning this because these grades are making it that much harder for me to say that I will ever fully dedicate myself to making art.  Just too many things I love to do!  Even though, hands down, art is by far the most fun for me, I do get a lot out of scholastic life.

But enough about that!  Today I just wanted to put up a little commission I did over the break (oh yah, remember how I said there were 2?  well here is the second one).  It's a depiction of my friend Paul G's family with their dog Niko.  The whole thing is in the style of these guys.  Paul provided me with pictures of his siblings when they were kids, and a few of his parents then and now.  The position/look of the dog is actually a combination of three different pictures, which I literally cut and pasted together to give myself and idea of placement/proportions.  There isn't much to say about this one since I've already made a post about this series.

Except what I will say is: buy my art!  I still have some dogs left over from the art show that need homes.  BUT I will be giving some away to the Children's Wish Foundation for an auction on February 4th... so get 'em while they're hot!

I've also been working on a pamphlet for CHUO (Ottawa U's radio station)... and am so stoked about it!!!  I don't get many "graphic design" jobs, and am glad that my photoshop skills weren't too rusty!  That should be ready for print as of thursday so keep your eyes open if you're around campus, and I'll post a copy on here.

Well, that's it for now.  Surprise Surprise, I've got some reading to do.  The life of a student is much too predictable.  

Ok that's it for now!
Until next time...


P.S. I took the picture before signing the work.. BUT DON'T TRY TO PASS IT OFF AS YOUR OWN YOU GREEDY, BRUTISH, NASTY, AND RUDE HUMANS!
