2012 Holiday Card - "23.5º"

This year's holiday card is a celebration of the astro-phsyics of the season. (Indeed, I shared it with the Bad Astronomer on G+ and he said it "looks about right" to him, which is good enough for me.)

As always, cards are available in the shop.

Fall 2012 Commission Timelines

Regarding Commissions from September 2012-December 2012

As it's now approaching the busy season for me, turnaround time for commissions has grown longer.

Any houses drawings needed for December 20 should be ordered by September 30th.

Other commissions will depend on complexity, but I anticipate at least six weeks turnaround.

Thanks for your understanding.

Chinatown Remixed

May 12 until June 12, Confectionaries: Remixed, will be hanging at Purple Urchin Soap at 882 Somerset Street West, Ottawa. 

Confectionaries: Remixed are paper weavings made using test prints from my original Confectionaries series. 

2011 Holiday Card

Here's my 2011 Holiday card design. I've done this one slightly differently this year, it's now a smaller format (4.25" x 5.5") and involves a "non-real" happening, wheras previous cards had focused on at least plausible scenes. The card (along with previous designs) is available in the shop.

Illustrated Sketch of Occupy Ottawa, October 15

The sun was out enough that I was barely warm enough to sketch. There were 500 people in the park at any given time and likely double or triple that passed through over a few hours. There seemed less than a dozen police, and they walked amicably through the crowd with little issue. This was good to see, and a wise course — rather than having lines of police on the sidewalks intimidating the crowd. One of the most notable things about the OWS movement in general has been the lack of violence (on part of the protesters) and that was certainly the case in relatively calm Ottawa.

House drawing season nearly over

For those in Ottawa who may still be looking for a house drawing commission, the season for doing these on location is almost up. Essentially in early October I stop sketching outdoors regularly as the weather becomes so unpredictable that it's hard to be able to commit. Naturally I can work from photographs if need be, but my preference is to be on site. If you have been considering commissioning a house drawing, do get in touch soon.
