Forgot to post this

Here's a painting I finished like 2 months ago and just realized I never posted it to my blog, it was a gift for them from a photo they took in  Cinque Terre, Italy. I went as well there during my trip to Italy. It was a magical place :D sorry for the low quality I took the photo with my parents' ipad.

Quick snaps of Old Montreal

The same night I went to Jihanne's vernissage at Galerie 203 I decided it would be nice to take a few quick photos of the old part of Montreal (the gallery is on Notre-Dame street, one of the main streets in that location - I kept tripping on cobblestones haha). Some turned out ok others were blurrier as I was in a rush to get into the metro, it was cold! I wish I had time to go down a few of the streets to get a good overall view of the area, next time I guess.

Hope you enjoy :)









Jihanne Mossalim at Galerie 203

My good friend Jihanne Mossalim just had her first ever solo vernissage for her exhibition at Galerie 203 in Old Montreal this past Thursday, it was super awesome. She produced something like over 40 paintings in the recent past and they were featured in the show. Most of them have an eerie, dark dreamy feel to them that I love, they make you feel nostalgic and kinda creeped out at the same time. It seems like there was a pretty great turnout from what I could tell, and I was super happy to see one of my Dawson friends achieve a great milestone in her career. It was great catching up with her and I'm looking forward to an awesome day of painting together sometime in the near future! All in all it was a great night and it got me really motivated to keep working hard at my paintings, which I will be posting here soon.

I took a few decent photos, enjoy :D

misfits sketchies

I've been thinking for a while that I really want to do some sort of Misfits (the Brit show) piece, so I've been collecting screencaps and doing little studies. I'm excited about this, I love all the characters from the show :D

1st post about nutrition!

Hi guys!

So I thought I would share my "recipes" (really just throwing things together willy-nilly hehe) for this awesome meal I made today:

Avocado-Sundried Tomato-Red Onion & Pepper Omelette:

-1 small section of avocado (or however much you want!) cut into small slices
 A handful each of (& chopped into little bits):
      - Red onion (or green onion if you prefer)
      - Sundried Tomato
      - Red Pepper
- 2 eggs (though today I only used one) whisked in a small bowl
- Salt + Pepper
- Olive oil or whatever you use to fry stuff (I prefer olive oil, it adds a nice flavour and is healthy in small amounts :D)

1. Crack egg(s) into bowl and add salt and pepper, whisk with fork until well mixed.
 First heat the oil in a non-stick fry pan on low-medium. Fry onions until partially cooked and add pepper and sundried tomato (no need to cook the avocado). Remove when just cooked enough to your liking.
You can turn up the heat to medium but watch the veggies as they can burn quickly.
2. Poor the eggs into the fry-pan, wait a few seconds til it starts cooking a bit then sprinkle the ingredients. Flip when underside is done. Serve & enjoy!

Banana Berry Smoothie:

- 1 banana, sliced
- Frozen berries (I use blueberries, cranberries and raspberries but you can buy the mixed berry bags, they are cheaper and have blackberries & strawberries)

- Greek yogurt (or regular; greek yogurt has a bit more fat but is very high in protein so it is filling, you can get lower fat versions)

- Milk (and/or soy/almond milk, I like using the chocolate kind) 
- Ground flax flour (optional - this stuff is supposed to help your brain :D) 
- Honey (optional)
- Orange juice or whatever juice you like (I usually don't add this to avoid sugar, up to you) 

 In a small blender or food processor, add: frozen berries, just to cover the bottom, yogurt (about 1 small serving, I'm guessing around 1/3 cup), banana, then fill the rest with milk with juice (or water, this is what I'm using now.) Add a little honey if you have a sweet tooth like me!
Blend until it's smooth, and enjoy :)

Liam - Moeeee!!

So this is the latest "character design" (for lack of a better word, caricature? I'm not sure what to call these) I did for Two Best Friends Play, of Matt's friend Liam. He's an up-and-comer on the show, it looks like he'll be sneaking in slowly as the weeks progress ;) I drew three versions of him, but we decided to go with the first one.

Liam LOVES animu. 'Nough said!


Go check out Two Best Friends Play NOW!!

Experimenting

So I was just finishing up painting for the day (I'm currently making a huge painting of Cinque Terre for the folks) and I had all this leftover paint, usually I just either throw it out or try and cram in one last bit. But today I got inspired to just do what I call "stream of consciousness" painting. Maybe it's not quite that but I just kinda slapped it on and see what took shape. I started two small canvases.

It's super liberating to just go with my gut feeling and experiment, I have a good feeling about these :D
