This one is a personal commission done recently for a client out in Toronto, Ontario. As a personal piece I won't go too much into the symbolism of the image, but it speaks to the clients respect for the pioneering spirit and the journey shared with one's partner. 

This is one of several "EK" commissions  I've done for clients over the past year (I will post the others in the future I hope). These pieces are interesting to create as the original EK work was so personal to me, involving my own feelings, struggles etc., so weaving the ideas and feelings of others into the EK Series is a different experience. These pieces are also a lot of fun to do because it gives me the chance to dive back into the EK "world".

All these commissions include a full size signed archival giclee print, along with supporting documents and a Certificate of Authenticity.

If anyone is interested in have their own personal EK piece, feel free to contact me for availability and rates!


I have a couple pieces in the latest edition of the fantastic art annual Spectrum. I would have posted this sooner but my complementary copy of the book was lost in the mail, and even though the guys at Flesk Publications sent me another copy right away (thanks John and Keith!), I have been too busy to post about it until now.

With a new editor and publisher, this edition of Spectrum has some minor layout differences, and what seems to me, a slightly different composition of content….although I guess this might just reflect the opinion of the judging panel of this edition. Anyways, and as usual, it is full of amazing work and it is worth picking up a copy.

Unfortunately since I was so busy with freelance work over the past year I didn't have the chance to put together a submission for the next edition of Spectrum…not to mention that even if I did, I would still have to be selected by the judges… guarantees there! But no submission definitely guarantees that I won't be included. So lets hope I can get off my ass and get some personal work done sometime this year! Time will tell.

Thanks again to John and Keith at Flesk Publications. Spectrum 21 cover art by Rebecca Guay.


The Japanese language edition of my book, Born In Concrete: The EK Series, has been published by Born Digital Inc. in conjunction with Design Studio Press.

The content of this edition is the same as the original English language version that was published by Design Studio Press back at the end of 2013, but the book has been reformatted down to a new size of 9"x 10.5" (as opposed to the 11"x 13"of the original), bound with a soft cover, and fully translated into Japanese . While the images maybe don't have the same impact at this new smaller size, the book looks great, with the Japanese text giving the book an exotic feel and the coated paper stock (both inside and on the cover) giving the images a softer more satin finish. It even has that little title/price card folded into the book like all Japanese books seem to have. So cool!

I'm a big fan of Japanese art books (mainly animation production books), and it was great to see my book interpreted in this fashion. The book is available from Born Digital here, of here.

The original, English language version is available here.

As for the original version of the book, due to it being featured (along with my Dystopic model kit) on the online show "Tested", it has spent the last 5 days as the #1 top seller on Amazon in the digital art category. Thanks to those that picked up a copy of the book….it is much appreciated!

Thanks to Scott Robertson and Tinti Dey at Design Studio Press and the guys at Born Digital Inc.
