University of Toronto Illustrations

I was asked recently by the University of Toronto to draw a few images of their campus for use in fundraising and communications.  I did 5 paintings in all, 3 of which are shown above.

These were fun to do, and allowed me the chance to paint something local.  As they were in Toronto, I also got the chance to visit the campus and shoot some of the reference photos on my own.

All images were painted in watercolour and ink, from reference photos, and were colour corrected using photoshop.

The Weeknd

Here's a portrait of R&B singer The Weeknd, drawn for the current issue of the New Yorker.  I was given a lot of conceptual freedom with this piece, and enjoyed layering a variety of mediums in making this one.

Drawn in a combination of digital, watercolour, goauche and ink.
