Harvest Sun Music Festival: Gisele

I like to post my failures every now and then. This sketch is one of them. I don't hate this sketch by any stretch of the imagination, but it also does not look a lot like the woman I was trying to sketch. In my defence she was on the move and was difficult to get a solid moment to sketch her when she was standing still. However it was good exercise for me as I draw men with beards quite well, but pretty ladies are intimidating for me to draw.

But onwards and upwards is what I always say. I will take another stab at drawing her face. Maybe from a photo as real life proved to be a bit too challenging.

Harvest Sun Music Festival: Bearded Dude

I'm having trouble remembering this gentlemans name at the moment. But I assure you he is a bearded dude. I spoke with him around our camp fire and he told me stories about his experiences hunting deer around Riding Mountain and his life as a mason and a father of 4 children. Very interesting man. His wife also hand makes clothing of the most beautiful kind. Makes me want to move out to the country and have like 12 children. They have graphic designers on farms right?

Harvest Sun Music Festival 2011: Rob Waddell


Sketch I did of folk musician Rob Waddell at this years Harvest Sun Music Festival. What a blast, I hope to get back there next year.

Pecha Kucha Winnipeg Vol.7 complete


Well I did my first public speaking gig in a couple of years at Pecha Kucha. It was a positive experience but I have some work to do with how I put presentations together and how much I say "um" when I speak.

Regardless I got to speak with some very talented and prominent artists from around the Winnipeg area. The biggest bonus was meeting up with artists and past speakers Kal Barteski, GMB Chomichuk, Justin Currie and James Van Niekerk. Through the seemingly unstoppable creative energy that seem to exude from Mr. Chomichuk, with in minutes of sitting together we had all agreed to take part in a collaborative art project. The next day J. Currie sorted out the details and we are now all committed. What a brilliant evening.

I have some sketches from the Harvest sun music festival that I will be posting soon.

Stay golden pony boys and girls.
