Flanked by the fine stylings of Katie Green, Olivier Bonnard, Jeremy Shantz and Jason Botkin, here’s my interpretation of Beijing’s little rabbit god Tu’er Ye… clutching a quart of pee-joe, rather than his apothecary’s pestle. He’s on the wall at Station 16, where the EN MASSE exhibition Full Circle is on until April 4.
A small, foot-square painting I did as a trial run for a possible series of similar but larger pieces (working designation: “proximas”). This one was exhibited at the Salon Masse show in 2012.
My drawing of a hariko-inu — the traditional Japanese papier mache toy dog — for the scroll-style En Masse jam at Otakuthon 2013, the anime/manga/cosplay convention in Montreal.
The old-school 3D-movie glasses I designed for the If They Came From Within art show (a mockumentary history of imagined indie Canadian horror cinema). These were for The Arcticons, a zesty ’60s sci-fi thriller that never existed. I printed a pair on cardstock, cut out the eyeholes and slapped in the appropriate red and blue gels — fully functional, film fiends!
This one goes back over 20 years… my poster for garage rockers The Sherlocks (with Piccadilly Green) at Montreal’s long-gone Terminal showbar in 1992.
Extracted from “Alphabestiarium”, in my book Traumstadtdenken: “Seen by some as a singularly sinister specimen, the seven-limbed, silver-horned Saharan Sandsnapper stealthily seeks its selected subject for a sudden, swift succession of severe septic slashes.” (Nasty little guy!)
An early-stage image from the mural executed by Mr. Jason Botkin and myself in Guangzhou, China, for a Converse photo shoot. You’ll have to check their summer catalog for the whole enchilada!
A slice of the original, 1996 minicomic Arbeitees by Marc Bell and I. The little dickens was reprinted in its entirety by Fantagraphics in their Treasury of Mini Comics Vol. 1 — a fat little bible of a book, at 848 pages, 5”x6”, hardcover. The sequel to our mini, Arbeitees V2, was released at the end of 2013… more here.
A tiny portion taken from the in-progress Circulus, my forthcoming, maze-structured meta-mini-comic from Éditions TRIP, due out this spring. News on that soon enough!
A small painting from many moons ago, unofficially titled “Death of a Salesman”, now in the personal collection of Mr. E. Jean Guerin.
