So the Davenport Perth Spring Fair went well. I forgot to get a photo of my table but I was happy with how it looked. I got some T-shirts and some buttons made and they did well, especially the former; I'll have to make a bigger run next time. I also got some fancy prints done of the above pieces so people can email me if they're interested.
Thanks to my friend Mia Skye for telling me about the event and to everyone who purchased things.
Thank you especially to Evan Doherty for being so generous with his time, skills, and resources; lately I don't get much done without him.
For further information on Evan Doherty, read his informative About page from groupofevan.ca:

The illustration I did depicts Kali, a hindu goddess Das identifies with. Kali is usually depicted standing atop Shiva, holding the decapitated head of the demon Raktabija.
Even though this is quite different from what I usually paint, it was an enjoyable project overall and the client was great to work for. Most images I looked at of Kali seem to be done with airbrush but I used acrylic for my final stage.
I dropped off some issues of Leisure at the renowned Beguiling comic store in Toronto on Markham Street yesterday. If you don’t want to pay shipping costs, or you want to put my name in the Beguiling clerks’ brains, buy a copy from them; my comics are on the first floor in the zine section.
If you buy a Leisure issue from them send me an email saying so so I can keep track of how many are still there. Thanks friends.

I've been making a lot that I haven't been posting on here; I can't decide whether or not to post projects over which I didn't have complete creative control. They make me money and I like doing them but I can't decide whether or not I want them next to my entirely personal work or not.
I have been more inspired by commercial art than the art I've seen in galleries lately; I follow Jillian Tamaki's blog and I like a lot of James Jean, Tomer Hanuka and Maira Kalman illustrations. I guess I'm just greedy. Painting more fine art-type stuff makes me want to do illustration and vice versa; I like variety.
