It’s been a busy, transient few months since graduating from CCS, so let me bring you up to speed.
First, I moved my junk from Vermont to my wife’s apartment in Montreal (she went back to school in the fall, so we’ve been living apart). Then I moved our collective junk into a storage locker because we’ve moving into a new apartment in September. Then I took some of my junk (shirts, underwear, pens) and moved them to Toronto, where my wife is doing an internship for the summer. A few weeks later, I took said junk and went back to Regina. The next day, that junk was bound for the forests of Revelstoke, BC. After a few weeks, that junk was back in Saskatchewan for a bit. And now it’s back in Toronto again.
Tumultuous, right? Extra thanks to my brother, Jonah who helped a lot with the move from Vermont back to Canada.
Anyway, I’ve been a little inconsistent updating my site. But, here’s a new sketchbook spread anyway.
My output was pretty good when I was in Toronto in June. Then I went on a camping/biking/climbing trip with my parents and youngest brother for a good chunk of July and all bets were off. My family has been doing these trips ever since my dad took up rock climbing. I’ve never been much of a climber, and a nine-year hiatus didn’t change things, but I did get to ride my bike a lot, which was wonderful.
Here are some things I saw:
I’ve had a thing for this colour palette for some time now. I guess the combination of brown, orange and yellow makes me think of the curtains and sofas that the parents of everyone my age owned.
Or flames and charred flesh. One or the other.
