Red Sun

Here is a fast little project I did last winter in order to give some self-made chrismas gifts.
The artwork is an assembly of sketches  and vector patterns I made earlier in 2013. I then screeprinted those in order to get the result you see now. It was a fun little project, lots of mistakes since it was a very fast thing (two days in total) but it was nice to get back to the screenprinting table (it’s been a while!)

Upcoming Show! East to West

If you are around Montreal next week, I’ll be at the event “East to West” of the screenprinting studio “La Bourgeoise Sérigraphe”.

 I will be selling a limited edition screenprint that I’m not gonna show before the event, but all the remaining copies will be available on this site after.

A selected group of artists from all around North America will be presenting and selling some of their homemade screenprints!
If you don’t own a screenprint yet, then it’s the perfect time!

I’ll be showing one of my projects alongside the some of Canadian’s big names:
Sophie Casson, Marie-Eve Gauthier, Véronique Meignaud, Vilx Mu, Johnnycrap, Beans & Bacon, just to name a few.
There will be also “gigposters” screenprints made from american “Flatstocks” by Gary Houston, Billy Perkins, Nate Duval, Gregg Gordon, Bobby Dixon, Jared Connor, Farley Bookout and more!
Even bigger names!

It’s going to be awesome. SERIOUSLY.

Andy McDougall, the master screenprinter behind squeegeeville, will be present at the event and will also be giving an advanced class following the exhibition. Actually…the class is full already…but the exhibition isn’t!!!

Training as Ashley Wood Junior

Here’s an artist I really like, Ashley Wood.

There is something amazing with his style, so rough it’s immediately recognizable but almost abstract at the same time. As if all his paintings were thick with dust in the air.

Well, my title made me laugh, I’m not really trying to be Ashley Wood junior, but want it or not, reproducing painting from the masters is the best way to practice a style.
Just to make sure: all the rights goes to his work, and so on, I’m not planning on making anything with that painting. except practice.

So here it is. It’s not done yet, but you can see the first layer.

There’s other stuff going on, but I’ll post them on monday! :) Be patient!

New Start

Well,
Obviously, the first week isn’t especially entertaining.

In order to have a real fresh start, I decided to whiten everything I had done so far:
the tests, the incompletes, the not good enought or even those I just got tired of looking.

Fresh start

So here you go, dozens of white canvases.

Now all I need is inspiration….

Oh okay, I’ll post something I did two weeks ago in order to keep the interest. I know my dirty studio floor is not so captivating.
Here is my favorites from a live drawing session I went two weeks ago.
