Invasion of the squids!

A poster I made last year. Based on an article about the decimation of fish populations in the coastal waters of British Columbia due to an increase in the number of GIANT squid.

Elusive is the fish able to swim among the the tentacles of turmoil
To dodge the many manufactured nets
And explore an ocean
Rather empty, rather full
Uncatchable fish
Uncatchable soul

Who controls these hands?


Drew this several years ago and just recently gave it some color.

Remains open to interpretation..

Staircases

This was initially a tattoo design for a friend, but I've added some color, texture and a couple nondescript characters to populate the piece. Definitely an exercise in patience with all the steps I had to draw. A tip of the hat to Escher as well.

Hoping to upload some photos of the tattoo once it's complete.

Flower of Virtues

Came across some thought provoking and uplifting information last year on a site called the Wingmakers.

Particularly inspired by what James, the site's anonymous host referred to as the 'six heart virtues' and adapted them into the Flower of Life template. At it's core is a six petalled formation, ideally suited for the words Admiration, Compassion, Understanding, Valor, Humility and Forgiveness .

Toltec Tollbooth

Been playing around with some matte painting techniques lately to the tune of an ancient astronaut theme. The columns on display here are known as the Atlantes and represent warriors of the Toltec Empire ~ located in Tula, Mexico.

And yes.. the ufo is a hubcap.
