Del the Funkee Homosapien

I contributed this portrait of Del for a hip-hop themed event in Montreux, Switzerland this week at The Corner Store. I Wish My Brother George Was Here and No Need for Alarm are favs!

The Association

These guys might be an acquired taste but... I’ve acquired the taste. See the video of my first attempt below. I didn't like the watercolor job in the end so I did it again.

Here’s an illustration of The Dears to go with an album review in the National Post.

And here’s how it appeared in the paper:

Here’s a drawing I did for a friend of mine (Deadmau5’s sister) — a Christmas present for the man himself! I’m told he loved it!

Bruce Springsteen

I’ve illustrated another record review for the National Post, and this time it’s new material from the Boss. I was glad to hear the new material was old unreleased material, so I could have a chance to draw a young Springsteen (even though I’m equally indifferent to all his periods). Enjoy!

Black Sheep

Here’s some less-famous gems if you’ve played the first album as much as I have:

Off the Wall - Trespass soundtrack
The Legion - Jingle Jangle
Pardon Me
Who Dat?
(New) Dres — Forever Luvlee

And this is a cool recent video of Dres explaining the crazy intro to A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing:
You Mean I’m Not?

All the squares go home!

After flipping through my old Mojo magazines I decided I had to draw Sly.You’ll see if you watch the video that I used two different kinds of paper, not something I usually do.  I wanted to try and make this one kind of psychedelic and trippy with the colors, though it kind of came out the same as all my other ones do in the end. Anyway, I started on a porous paper to get some cool bleeds, but that paper wouldn’t allow for much detail without bleeding so I pasted the good parts onto some hotpress watercolor paper. Normally for a deadline I would do this in photoshop but since these are just for fun, I try to make finished originals. The hotpress paper had my sketch printed on it at about 10%. My brother did the video for me.
Oooh, and I know Sly played the keyboard more often, but I had some great reference of him in this white suit with the custom guitar.

Arcade Fire

I did this illustration for the National Post  today! 
Get it? They’re on fire. Because of their band name.
