Then Ripley tilts her head to the side like a badass and proceeds to light the alien hive on fire.

Chasing Artwork branding update! by ChasingArtwork
Chasing Artwork branding update!
So, new year, just moved into a new studio, thought it was time to update the old logo!
I liked my older design, but it was time for a change, I've been procrastinating this update forever, and super happy with the new look. 

My mission statement is "An artist should always be growing, evolving, and improving. Your best piece should always be the next one. Start Chasing"
In the old design I hinted at this theme with the infinity "s", with the new logo, I'm giving a wink to Moby Dick, chasing your white whale - you chase and you chase to be perfect, but you should never stop :)

Hope you like! 
Go chase some artwork!
Chasing Artwork has new diggs! by ChasingArtwork
Chasing Artwork has new diggs!
love it.
My previous studio was getting very cramped with art and book inventory (and I plan on printing another 2500 graphic novels right away), and so after a little looking, I found my muses new home just down the street from my last studio. Moving is pretty much complete, and now its time to decorate the walls and get back to work on the new book "Rust and Water".

Been a long road working towards this, but also- one of the greatest parts about living in Winnipeg Manitoba is that I manage to have a downtown studio of my very own without winning the lottery

Rust and Water Progress
My next graphic novel "Rust and Water" is really starting to take shape! It's hard not to share everything right away :)

Here's a shot of the books InDesign file, I draw everything traditionally first, lay out pages, then paint panels in adobe illustrator, and bring the final print ready panels all together in a file like this. This is one of the main character "Nara" meeting a little drone called "Watch"

I've been listening to the Interstellar soundtrack on repeat all day. Decided its this books soundtrack. 

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.

Smaller Local anime con to start the year off! tiny show, but great attendees and a fun atmosphere :)

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  
April 18-20

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

Think everyone was pretty shocked at the turnout this con pulled, was a great success for a shows 1st year, and next to no artists tried this show out- so we killed! :p
and of course yummy eats afterwards, this time with some Total Drama Island voice actors.
