I re-imagined Birds of Prey as a “Vigilante Scooter Club”, tough and sporty roller-derby type girls with DIY costumes that are functional, but also fashionable enough for Gotham’s trendiest dive bars.
Birds of Prey, like every “Vigilante Scooter Club”, needs a logo/patch for their jacket, below Black Canary shows it off.
This is an illustration of Mad Sweeney from the novel American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It’s a great book and being an Irish expat I was really drawn to the character of Mad Sweeney. He’s a hard sort of truckstop redneck leprechaun. He somehow simultaneously defies and confirms the image Americans have of Ireland. It would have been tempting to use green in this piece but somehow I don’t think Mad Sweeney would have approved of anything quite so cliche.
This is the second of the American Gods pieces I did for the art jam at Superpunch
This illustration is inspired by Neil Gaiman’s brilliant novel American Gods. I was really drawn to a minor reference to Coatlicue, (the Aztec Earth Mother Goddess). After the Aztecs were conquered, she continued to be worshiped in some respects as the Virgin of Guadalupe. To represent her, I wanted to blend the Aztec and Catholic iconography. In this way I wanted to reflected the multifaceted visual nature the gods displayed at certain times in the novel. This is one of two illustrations I did for an art jam at Superpunch

Brienne is one of my favorite characters from George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire”/”Game of Thrones” series. I’ve seen a few other illustrators I love doing some Game of Thrones fan art recently and I thought I’d jump in on the fun.
This is a piece I did for a group show, Carded hotartcard.com. The show is Saturday April 30, 2011 at Gallery Gachet (88 E Cordova, Vancouver BC) 8-11pm. Check it out, you can get the King Killer card there, and lots of other awesome art to collect and trade!
