2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vaughn Bode IPOD Nano Cozy. on: March 01, 2009 05:53:27 AM
I bought my first ever Ipod last november.
Then after getting it, I pouted around at all the prices of the Ipod covers.
$24 bucks for something I can only use on one item, and it's ugly?
No thanks WalMart.
(But thanks for your cheaper Ipod prices than I could find anywhere else).

So I went home, found some fuzzy fabric, and an old tshirt and went to work.

I sewed it by hand, because my sewing machine is outta commission Undecided
But it's got a fuzzy inner sleeve that can be removed (to wash the outside), and the outside is just painted tshirt, stitched around the edges, with a little flap and button closure.

I'm really into the art of Vaughn Bode, and since I made it red, I decided to jazz it up with a
little hand-painted cheech wizard. Didn't use anything fancy, just acrylics.

Thanks for looking!

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / It's how we roll.... IMG OVERLOADED. on: February 28, 2009 08:14:19 AM
I wasn't sure if there was a forum for outside/street art, but if so, I can move this.
Anywayyy, one of my main loves is aerosol.
I got into graff about 5 years ago, first as something dumb to do on drunk nights out, then finding it a fun means of expressing myself, as well as ridiculously challenging.
I can draw pen to paper well, but moving it onto a wall is just a whole different story, one I still struggle with.
But I love it, and it's a great way to meet awesome people (it's how my bf and I got together), and there's nothing better than gettin a production going of a bunch of writers underneath an out-of-the-way bridge in the beautiful weather.
And the rush from goin' out bombing at night is better than wasting all my monies on benders, right?

Anyway, enough of the novel, here are some flickkkkks of things I've done.

lucky kitteh<3


added a 'bride of frankenstein' a few months later after i was given
some free cheap neon paint at an art show.

the boy<3 in action, mine is the scandalous broad on the side.

topless broad again mine, piece is the boys.

Toronto Go tracks roller.

Showing off it's bigness.

More fun, More East on the Go tracks.

In an old abandoned building, on a cold winters dayyy.

This wall doesn't exist anymore. They ripped it all down, we went back and collected little cement chunks with our paint chips still on it.

this one got buffed four days later. It was beautiful and beaming downtown tdot.
Did it at 2am with my bf on the top of a building that we freakin' climbed up the side of! (horrifying)
but had a great time.

SIP 2008.
We got the most amazing chance to paint at Style In Progress. Its a huge graff jam that happens DT Toronto once a year where a bunch of writers come out and attack the Queen St. Alley walls.
Me and my boy were part of it, and a buddy of ours Esker (Reks) is in the bottom left.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Graffiti handstyles, Steezin' screen printed shirts. on: February 26, 2009 11:55:30 AM
Hey, so I'm officially new to the boards, (tho i've been lurking forever), and have decided to actually join and make up for lost time by posting some of my stuffs. (and some of the bfs as well)

Anyway, we're ridiculously lucky enough to work at an amazing screen printing shop with two close friends of ours. We print mostly for Canadian and Indie bands, and I do the designs/separations.

And, our boss, being the angel he is, understands our artistic impulses, lets us use the shop on weekends for whatever our little hearts desire, providing we clean up, of course.

Anyway, the boy and I were really just itching to make shirts, so this is our first project that we did a while back.
We're both writers, this is our handstyles. We put them on shirts and foiled them and stuff.

We have the unfair advantage of an actual shop at our disposal, but it's all manual (not ballin' enough for an automatic press) and a pretty involved process from start to finish, as you all know.

me mirror modeling the product.

Pi314 handstyle in gold foil.

BFs handstyle (Empyr) in black foil.
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Prime Ribsy. on: February 26, 2009 11:44:42 AM
Inspired by the amazing art of John Scribner and his vintage Beverly Clearly Ramona Quimby series.

Done with pantone marker, prismacolor pencil crayons, india ink and acrylic inks.
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Longtime Lurker, First time Poster! Wacom tablet drawing. IMG HVY. on: February 26, 2009 08:25:07 AM
Hey everyone,
So I can't even tell you how long I've lurked on this site... years... YEARS!

I'm a 24 year old illustrator/graphic designer living in Toronto.
I have a sweet job at a screen printing shop with my bf where we can make tshirts to our hearts content!

Anyway, 2009 is my year of getting my stuffs together and getting more involved in the arts community online.
I also want to explore doing my own thing more, and honing my skills.

Finished piece (larger view at bottom of post)

This is the photo of a mannequin at Le Chateau that started it all.

Starting to get my forms/shading down

BW version, changed hair, added bkgd, texture to the skin, etc...

Finished Piece! Took about 10+ hours, but I'm really happy with the results.

As I mentioned, this is my first tablet illustration, so any comments/critiques/tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys, looking forward to getting more on the boards!
