Believing in the importance of healthy food for kids is something that Chefables and I have in common. So when they asked me to participate in their book Chef Able's Fabels I was more than happy to help out.

I was thrilled when I landed this assignment from Humpty Dumpty Magazine since I'm a big baseball fan. I was also quite pleased when they didn't seem to mind me referencing my team the Toronto Blue Jays, and about to strike out the Red Sox no less! I also decided to make the second baseman a boy version of New Hall-of-Famer Roberto Alomar.

This piece is featured on the back cover and accompanies the poem The Old Ball Game by Lorna Johnson. It's on shelves now so get yours today

To celebrate hitting 500,000 subscribes Alex of YouTube's Keep the Heat fame commissioned this fresh new background. It was a fun challenge since I had never created anything with this pixelated look before but I think it came out great.

Working with Alex is always a good time since he always has a fun new idea. I'm glad that I'm his go-to illustrator!

I recently had the honour of working on this iPhone App project called Elf Cam with Wet Nose Design. It's a really fun app that lets you see Santa come down your chimney as well as a multitude of other functions. I find the Ask An Elf videos particularly enjoyable!Make sure you download yours today!

Wet Nose Design was a joy to work with on the project as they allowed me a lot of creative freedom, and had lots of good input, and a good vision of what the final product should look like. This was hopefully the first of many apps that I get to work on.

I created this animation in response to clients who have approached me with questions about the process involved when working with an illustrator. I can understand the apprehension, but hopefully it will answer some of their questions. This movie can also be found on YouTube, so please feel free to post it, and share it with others as you see fit!


If you'd like to read more about my process in creating the animation, please visit my blog.

I very recently created some illustrations for Alex Negrete of the Keep the Heat YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/keeptheheat). The work consisted of a background for the web page, as well as some additional character illustrations for his show Klik, a show for teens and tweens where Alex riffs on celebrities and other topical stuff. I'm especially proud of the God character - he's a pretty hip looking dude. It was a fun assignment, and Alex was definitely a pleasure to work with.
