Greg Wadden

My good chum and lead singer of Right On Yukon!, Greg Wadden, calls me up an says "hey man you wanna do a photoshoot for some art gallery of nova scotia project".

so i said sure.

The project is that you have your photo taken holding a photo of the person that recommended you to the project.
After I was recommended, they asked me if i would paint my interpretation of Greg's photo for MY photo.

Here's the results.

and the photo for the gallery show

Which I wanted to say 'hey! i'm super awesome! lets be awesome together! awesome!'

but instead
i think it ACTUALLY says 'i'm awkwardly tense!.....and i have these weird spider fingers.'

Zombie Show!

Tonight at The Seahorse in Halifax, I'll be showing work in a zombie show!
gonna be great!


this one is for the girlfriend.
its us as shes supporting my need to chew intestines.......yum!

dead flowers.

the way the blood oozes off the scalp in the background makes me uncomfortable.

i dont know if zombies dream
but if they do
i bet the dreams look like this.
this one unfortunately wont be included in the show as it doesn't work well with the others.
gotta maintain a great visual composition too and this one doesnt fit.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Halifax, every year we have a public, city wide art crawl called 'Nocturne'. It's basically a rad event where everyone comes out at night to view hundreds of little art exhibits all over the city. 

Myself and Nick Brunt were commissioned to do some pieces for the Halifax public archives.
Which is basically a massive collection of photos and articles free for viewing to the public. 
So after a few hours I picked 2 photos: author Ernest Buckler and folk musician Don Messer

These are the originals:

Ernest Buckler

Don Messer

aaaaaaand this is how I defaced their wonderful legacies.


Great turnout all around for Nocturne last night.
Excited for next year!

Glory Hound

Check out this rad music video for Electric Dusk by Glory Hound!

Directed/Composited by Jack Brayer!
Illustrated by me!

It's part of the 10X10 competition here in Halifax for this year's film fest.
If you watch it be sure to 'like' it!
The competition is based on highest number of user 'likes'!
So be sure to like it and spread the word!

This is the second video from Mouthpiece Studios this year!
Which is what Brayer and I are working under for any commercial projects we score!

Check this out!
It's my first directed commercial!

The commercial came as a commission from Alex Leguerrier at Saint Thomas University for a non profit organization called DotsNB.
The organization raises money for kids' mental health.

I had the amazing team of: Jonathan Brayer as the after effects compositor and Ryan Gainer who composed the music.

Everything turned out great and exactly what the client asked for.
Can't complain about that!
Great experience for my first major commercial directing gig!

Thanks to all involved!

Roller Town!

I was commissioned by an industry buddy of mine, the fantastical director/workaholic Jay Dahl, to make a poster for Roller Town's premiere.
Roller Town is a film by Picnicface, a local comedy troupe who are doin some rad rad stuff lately!

Fuckin Buttons!

First wave of buttons from Fuckin Buttons! is being launched this weekend when I paint at Saint Thomas University!
Gonna sell em as merchandise while we paint!

The irony behind the whole thing though is that because of the ideals the school adheres to, I was asked to censor my brand...
which means
Fuckin Buttons! official debut is as the less impressive "effin buttons!"

Hopscotch is a yearly hiphop festival here in Hali!
So this year I was asked to do a piece for an art show and this is my entry!

and killed this piece today

St Thomas University Event

St Thomas commissioned 2 posters for some events coming up in the next 2 weeks. One of which I'm involved in with some live painting action.

This is the first poster.

I'm apparently going through some sort of 'draw a lot of water' phase.

The Rural Alberta Advantage!

The Rural Alberta Advantage are playing the Halifax Pop Explosion this year and I've been commissioned to do the show poster!

These cats are high on my 'all time' list so I'm beyond stoked to be able to do their show poster for this year!

but it's rad news anyway!

Business Card!

An insane amount of art stuff is coming down the pipes in the next few months.
Booked up almost to January!

Need a new business card
so this is what I settled on!


note: the website and email contacts haven't been added yet because i'm still finalizing domain and email stuff!


New Fuckin Buttons! Packaging

New pass of packaging for my buttons!
Last one was too dated in terms of design.
Felt rushed and.....crappy.
