Gimme Indie Rock!

I drew this one after looking through a recent music magazine. It was done in markers, unlike the last one which was drawn in guoache, so that I could keep my drawing more spontaneous and loose. I find when I paint in gouache, the drying time involved forces me to work really slow, which stiffens up my approach. Using markers allows me to work fairly quickly, but the trade off is that it requires some digital clean-up afterwards, whereas goauche goes on nice and flat -- just the way I like it.

This one goes out to Will Oldham, whose music always inspires me.

Happy New Year

It finally snowed recently in Toronto, so here's a winter themed drawing I did recently. Don't ask why -- it just has that title. This one's dedicated to Gary Boaz, whose book I really enjoyed.
