I gotta give kudos to Chris Hadfield for his amazing Space Oddity(Originaly performed by David Bowie) music video done in space. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lc8BcBZ0tAI
So I got this new sketch book…
Yes it was love at first sight, she’s about the size of a novel. But honestly I’m just happy I was able to find a more portable and outdoor friendly sketchbook, I plan to draw a lot more often this summer so why not draw at other places rather than always at home?
Aside from that…
Here’s the first sketch enjoy!
I’ll be crudely honest and say I’m a little hung over (hence the length of this post) but here’s what I’m currently working on today;
Its a package I often do for people who are looking for a professionally designed logo, in this current case this is for my mother’s Haitian restaurant. (its the first time I’ve had a relative as a client) The bundle is accompanied by an eye candy business card. I find that a business card and a logo should always be visually appealing due to the first impression it reflects upon your business or enterprise.
I wish all mothers including mine, a happy mother’s day.
The art battle was amazing!! The event was separated in two rounds of six artists;

The Art Battle brought forward several talented artists who painted a canvas live within 20mins. Never would have I thought that 20 minutes could evaporate quickly, nor did I think it I was able to sweat due to painting. I’m very thankful I brought my camera to immortalize some awesome pictures I got of the artists live in action.
I’d also like to congratulate and wish gopod luck to the winner Mark Stephenson who will be representing Ottawa in the finals taking place in Toronto.

I got the delightful opportunity to compete in the incoming art battle taking place in Ottawa on may 5th. I’m really looking forward to this, with school out of the way and pleeennnnty of sleep I’m diving right back into my arsty puddle. I already bought myself some smexy paintbrushes and a much more carry-able sketchbook to produce more eye candy for the wonderful people like you who actually read my blog posts . So please take the opportunity to see my shaven and rarely presentable face at:http://artbattle.ca/art-battle-52-ottawa/ on may 5th.
I got to make an awesome poster for an event organized by a friend of mine. He’s in charge of organizing a event awarding outstanding cinematography achievements to the students
who are making a film as a final project. The theme of the poster is based on the Oscars Night. It Took me about 4-5 hours to complete the poster.
Other then that I’d like to apologize for my recent inactivity in posts, the black death is approaching (exams :p) and I must prepare myself to survive lol.
So I made this design to send out the following message:
There’s been a lot of conspiracy about soul trading in many industries… I’m not writing this post to stir up a debate on whether or not fame is not as we perceive it to be. We all have personal opinions and it isn’t my responsibly to change yours. But the next time you listen to Lady Gaga or some crazy bitch like Ke$ha, and you come across crazy shit like this;
Don’t tell me that there’s nothing fishy going on :p
Even if this had nothing to do with spirituality, she’s still unfortunately a role model for some kids out there and music has a significant influence on our subconscious minds.
Here’s another completed tattoo design not buried by my procrastination, requested by Speedy.
Its quite an interesting concept overall. The entire thing symbolizes his origins and love for his city, along with the quote; ”know where you’re from to know where you’re heading”. Its approximately a half sleeve which incorporates another tattoo he already has. The idea was entirely his, I was simply the interpreter.
There’s a lot of various drawing requests which I had promised to quite a few friends. Mostly tattoo design requests, So I decided to finally start catching up on work which should have been completed and so I’m currently fulfilling those requests. If you’re reading this and I owe you a drawing, it’ll eventually be posted in the blog in the next few days. (If not there’s always the ”contact moi” tab) I’ll be posting up more designs, a cool illustration for a story written by a talented witter and much more…
Today’s drawing is a draft tattoo design made for Andrea Ferrari. She came up with this wonderful idea herself and I eventually managed to illustrate it. The outcome is splendid.
