It was a huge honour to be asked to be featured and interviewed in the pages of Gnarly Magazine. I have been following this mag for awhile now and the artists that they feature are some of my favourite. So to be asked to be in the same pages means a hell of a lot. Not sure I am worthy, but I’ll take it. Do yourself a favour and subscribe to this killer mag.
It was a huge privilege to get interviewed and featured in the latest issue of Fast Times Magazine. I am super grateful to Lyndsey Westfall and the staff for the opportunity and stoked to be in the same issue as the talented Amanda Brisebois from Black Widow Custom Paint, photographer Charles-Etienne Pascal and bike builder Alex Beaulieu.
Get issue 3.1 on stands now.

Very excited with how the new illustration came out for the house brand Rolling Chaos.
The t-shirt, entitled “Riding Out The Storm”, was released today and you can purchase it from the website at www.rollingchaos.com.
It’s hard to believe that I used to do most of my design and illustration by hand with pens, pencils and paper. It was such a tedious job, but until the old Adobe packages came rushing in I wouldn’t have known any better. I’m glad that I can do most of my illustrations digitally and straight on to the computer. But one forgets how long you’ve been doing this for and sometimes it’s good to go back to basics. I’m doing my best to step away from the computer, put pencil down to paper, retrace with pen and get the watercolors out. It’s by no means top-quality work but there’s something about having that physical final artwork in your hands that’s very gratifying.
Here’s two tattoo flash sheets that I’ve worked on and hopefully more to come.
We always have a great time working with the lads from Freedom Machine, and this year, along with the poster we did for the show, we also got to put together the official t-shirt to be sold at the event. Bold and in your face, just as we like it!
We’ve been very fortunate to have Metal Hammer Magazine supporting us over the last couple of years and always asking us to help with their Paradise Festival posters and t-shirts, as well as their Metal Hammer Awards events.
This year was no different and they asked us for another viking-inspired t-shirt illustration.
They went with one of our other colour options but we’re rather fond of this one below.
