Fermenting Canadian Ice Wine

I think I miss the point completely on occasion and float away into my own little world forgetting that which exists and already surrounds me. Then I get to thinking about that point and why it has to be tipped and pointy and why is can’t be round, soft and interchangeable with beams of light infused with grape juice.

And then again if beams of light were infused with grape juice they would ferment as they travelled to earth at the speed of light and once here we’d all be drunk on clear burgundy sun drops.

Except here in Canada those infused beams of light would freeze and ice wine would fall from the air.

It’s -28ºC / -18ºF here in Saint John, New Brunswick!

A Short Illustrated Story featuring Little Dude

Things have become ridiculously serious around here lately. To lighten things up I’ve put together a morbid little illustrated short just for you because I love you.

And Artist’s Tips will return tomorrow!!! Muahahahahahahhaaaaa!

I am feeling much better. Thank you.

A Short Illustrated Story

Yes, the drawing of the little dude catching the big fish was drawn on pretty pink acid free cotton Canson paper using a Pilot G-tec C4 pen. :)

Another land another day another dream

Sometimes art needs to take you away
to another land where flowers spin,
the terrain is checkered moss green and ocher;
where the grass grows as bamboo
and is pointy at it’s tip.

I created this art card using Kroma artist quality acrylic, pigmented ink and archival pen on 1/8″ (3mm) thick cold press illustration board. It is varnished three times and has a lovely sheen about it.

Get your rulers out as the image above is much larger than the original. It’s all about the detail baby!

Available in both open edition 5×7 inch size and in a limited edition run of 100 ONLY in ACEO mini print size in the art shop.

Standard ACEO Size – 2.5″ by 3.5 inches or 6.4cm by 9cm
ACEO – Art Cards Editions and Originals
People collect ACEO’s worldwide just like they do with Magic or Hockey trading cards. They are wallet sized and frames are easy to find for them.
