Home Song by ChasingArtwork
Home Song
Created and Illustrated by: Justin Currie / Chasing Artwork 
Written by: GMB Chomichuk (  )

I was contacted by a friend, couple months back, to help out on a poster for an upcoming "Make a Wish Foundation" charity event with a  theme "music as a form of therapy". Music is pretty powerful stuff, especially during rough times, so I was immediately on board with the idea for a visual piece.

At first we played around with an idea of a superhero using music as a weapon- but eventually decided upon a kid discovering the power of song on his own- and wielding it in the face of some fearful odds. Once the poster came together- I just fell in love with the character (Russ- I've decided his name is Russ) and the world. I want to see more! Soon after, I met up with the very talented GMB Chomichuk (we worked on Cassie and Tonk together) and he put together the powerful verbage to go along with Russ's short story/adventure.

Just did this comic because I liked the idea, and wanted to bring attention to a good cause. 
Hope you enjoy!
Take a second and check out the Fundraiser for the site as well :)…

Chasing Dreams is an annual fundraiser for the Children's Wish Foundation, raising money by selling music albums yearly

We are a collection of Winnipeg's most talented DJ's, Producers, and Musicians who have been lucky to share our music with others. It is time for us to use our passion to help others. We would like to raise $5000, all of which will go to the Children's Wish Foundation.

Any amount of donation is appreciated, and all proceeds go towards making the dream of a special kid come true. The Children's Wish Foundation has granted thousands of wishes of children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. So, every donation goes a long way in making dreams of many a reality, but sharing this project with other people too is hugely appreciated.

Someday I  would love to do a followup story about a girl stuck in the same world with her violin... 

Heartless Sora by ChasingArtwork
Heartless Sora
"The heart may be weak. And sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned... that deep down there's a light that never goes out!"

Loved when Sora went into antiform / heartless drive during Kingdom Hearts 2. wanted to know more about what was going on there... excited for Kingdom Hearts 3.

Hey guys, I'm off to the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney Australia! Pretty excited for the convention, as well as doing a bit of the tourist thing afterwards:)

Also! as soon as I'm back, I plan on releasing a short comic (online for free) about the "Fear my Song" piece, really excited about that little project. 

See you guys in a couple of weeks!

More on the cause itself here:

Been busy getting my ducks in a row for the 2014 con season :) lots of shows lined up, and I'm pumped!!
slowly but surely making more time for US shows, and hopefully I'll be making a jump across the pond for a Europe show before too long. Australia was on the list for this year, but my selfish best friends getting married haha, so that's on hold for now. 
I'm going to be at the 2015 San Diego show, as well. For sure for sure. tired of missing out on that.

Winnipeg Wonderland Anime Festival  March 1,2

Another Smaller con, the very first year its been held. Bit tinnier than we had hoped, but a good chance to network with local artists and plan some big plans :)

Toronto Comicon March 7-9
Untitled by ChasingArtwork
First big show of the year! was a little hectic to man a 2 table endcap without any help, but with the aid of red bull, coffee, and Granola bars, I made er!
The Pokemon Poster on display caused a massive spike in that pieces interest- good trick to remember.
I also think I forgot a piece of my banner stand at the show :( 
Also, never trust :iconquirkilicious: :iconandreatamme: to lead you anywhere. Ever. every time we go off on an adventure to find a magical Sushi place, or a mythicaly awesome pasta restaurant, it turns into a never ending quest :p

Emerald City Comicon March 28-30
Seattle Booth by ChasingArtwork
This con had a stupid amount of talent setting up shop, my area in particular felt like a Disney concept art book exploded onto the floor. so much AAA cuteness.  Loved the city of Seattle, very friendly and chill place, the weather was nice (especially in comparison to Winnipeg). One of the best aspects of the trip was adventuring around the city with friends after show hours. 
Cannot wait for next year! only thing I'm going to change is the amount of table space :0 need moooaaar!

Fan Expo Vancouver

Lil sis came to help me out :) was a super fun trip, and I was pleasantly surprised how many return customers remembered me from last year and were excited to pick up the new stuff- always nice to leave an impression in the sea of crazy talent that is artists alley :p

Calgary Expo April 24-27

Not sure where to start with how the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo went this year... Splendidly epic.

To kick things off, they used my Cassie and Tonk artbook submission as a aisle banner, completely unknown to me, so day one of the show I suddenly stumbled upon my own original characters printed the size of truck. The best. It will be used at the con every year from now on  (I tried to buy it from them, but they like it too much, haha)

I've never had so many return customers, almost everyone had visited the booth in years past, and was hungry for this years new pieces. One of the best con crowds an artist could hope for.

After a dozen or so customers took my ninja turtles pieces to the voice cast to sign, I was informed the actors wanted their own copies, I promptly sprinted across the halls and had the opportunity to meet the entire voice cast my fav childhood show! All really nice dudes. Cowabunga.

Every day after the show Andrea Tamme and Quirkilicious took us out for crazy delicious eats, I'll be haunted by those savoury meats until next year 

So ya, amazing show, great attendees, hauntingly great meals. I'll be back next year with more stuff than you can shake a stick at!

Fan Expo Regina May 3-4
