Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 We've reached the end of the February Art Project and I must say I very pleased and surprised by the results. I'm really enjoying these urban landscapes and also how they don't have to make sense or even be real places. I did say that i was going to have a surprise at the end of the project but you're just going to have to wait until tomorrow now.

Yey I have a new 2nd hand scanner now I can post decent images of the drawings from this month. This one is loosely based on some buildings near a railyard.

Doing these drawings every day has been really enjoyable. I'm also starting to get back into some digital and mixed media work which is also fun. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 I'm finding Winnipeg a very inspiring city in a lot of ways but mostly for it's buildings; Which seem to be something that I'm drawn to when it comes to urban landscapes. I was driving down a big highway called Pembina the other day looking for a certain store, as the traffic was busy I had time to take the camera out and snap a few shots as I was going along. These drawings are taken from some of those photos. I've taken liberties to change the composition and add and subtract elements as I saw fit.

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 This idea of a quilt has popped back into my mind again. I thought this time I'd focus on just the quilt without any other elements. Paypal link below:

It's always hard when you feel you've had a few successes with your drawings, by which I mean some drawings you're really happy with. The this imaginary pressure builds up. The antidote I find is just to sit down and start drawing anything without judging it. Sometimes it takes a few goes to get anywhere. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 I've been thinking of doing a series of drawings based on apartment blocks in my neighbourhood. This one is kind of like a test to see how it comes out from memory. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 I saw this on the river walk as well although it got covered in snow before I could get a good picture of it. So I had to reconstruct it from memory and the not so good photo. But that being said it has come out fairly close to what I envisioned. I think it's some kind of heat vent at the bottom of an apartment building. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 Seems like the last few days have been really busy for some reason, but I don't seem to be getting a lot done. I'm feeling a little wound up and no where to go... Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper SOLD I felt like doing another one of these construction drawings. Although they are a lot harder to do when I'm not actually doing any of these mixed media works they are meant to be depicting. I'm hoping to get into some new mixed media collage works soon.

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 The is a follow up drawing to 015. After drawing the pile of chopped wood i went back to get another look and the piles had been burnt to the ground. All that was left was this big round pit of black ash burnt into the snow. Sorry for the badly contrasted photo I should be able to start scanning these pics in a day or two. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 No major story behind this one. I wanted to do another drawing with a quilt like qualities like the earlier pyramid piece. I think this one has something to do with how we all construct our life's out of these little pieces that are mostly dependent on others or given or sustained by others. It might not be much at times but it's ours and it's all we've got. It's enough to see us through. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper SOLD I saw this pile of chopped of tree parts the other day (actually there were three) it seemed quite surreal to me, or maybe like intentional environment Art. Anyway it moved me enough to want to draw it to try and convey it to you.

Feb update

We’re almost halfway through the February art project so I thought I take the time to check in and clarify some finer points of the project that people have asked. -The project is running through February, each day a new drawing is posted. There will be 29 drawings in total. -If you’re viewing the site from Australia it may appear that I’m posting the drawings late, but remember that Australia lives a day in the future due to the magic of international time lines. -Each drawing is up for sale through this blog or through my etsy.com store, it’s up to you. -I'll try and post both a scan and a photo of the drawing. The scans usually come out brighter and the photos a little darker. If you click on the image you'll get an enlarged version which gives a better idea. -If you like a piece I can put a hold on the piece you like, this means that instead of buying straight away you can hold it until a desired time. -If you don’t have a paypal account but would still like to purcha

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 I spotted this amazing little collection of chimneys on the top of some buildings in the city the other day which I just had to draw in some shape or form. I think I'd like to do more of these urban landscape type pieces that are kind of jumbled up spatially. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper SOLD I went for a walk today to try and find access to the river near our new place. Along the way I noticed this traffic signal box with graffiti on it. I tried to do it justice by drawing it from memory but the real thing is almost better. I found the entrance to the river; which is frozen and has a long skate trail on it. It was awesome and surreal to walk down the middle of the river and I couldn't believe such a great walking track was on our doorstep.

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper $20 This drawing is harking back to 2006 when I did similar drawings for my honours research. The drawings were of imaginary installations of mixed media on board works. I found the drawings gave me a good excuse to just sit down a doodle. Paypal link below:

Click image to view larger. 4.5” x 5.7” inches (11.5 x 14.5cm) ink on Hemp and Recycled paper SOLD I drew this one this morning at a cafe having my morning coffee. It's kind of an amalgamation of different buildings i could see out the window. One was a giant Safeway that had 'Food& Drug' written on the side.
