Red Herring Christmas Cards

Here are some Christmas cards I created to sell at Red Herring's Burlesque show. If you haven't been to a burlesque show, then I highly recommend seeing one of Red's "Reveal Me" shows held at the Rivoli on Queen Street in downtown Toronto. You will also love the M.C. Daytona Bitch who will definitely tear you a new asshole.

Here is their Facebook page: Reveal Me
Check them out!

30 Day Sketchbook Challenge

Two months ago I saw a post on one of my bookmarked blogs that I frequent often ( The work on this blog is from an awesome Pixar Storyboard artist. Check out his life drawing gestures, truly inspiring! He talked about his department doing a 30 day sketchbook challenge. I never filled a sketchbook in 30 days and thought this could be a wicked challenge for myself. Below is some samples from my 30 day sketchbook challenge. If any wants to challenge themselves for a month, I definitely suggest this, it was very exciting and motivational.
