Mechacod Linocut

Mechacod: the linocut. Since doing the t-shirts, I had a few requests for prints. I'm not currently set up for screen-printing on paper so I made a new linocut plate. Edition of 60.

Big weekend!

I couldn't resist taking part in both of these events this weekend even though they conflict. Manufactured Right here is at the Remax Centre Saturday and Sunday. My friend Katherine will be at my table on Saturday so that I can also be at Sin City Crafters at the Rocket. Busy now trying to double up my inventory AND trying to have a new 2-colour linocut ready for the weekend.

Buy local

My cartoon for this month's Northeast Avalon Times. Two "big" concerts going head-to-head this summer on the same day: one in St. John's and one in Grand Falls creating a little townies vs. baymen action. Enjoy the show if yer goin' but don't forget to buy local when you can!

Whistler's Puffin

Whistler's Puffin (with apologies to Whistler and his mother). The original painting was actually called "Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1". My version has a bit more colour. And a lot more puffin. Still tweaking it a bit but it's pretty well done. (20" x 20", oil on canvas)

New addition to the small copper-tooled series I started last year (killick, cod, etc).

Onesie the rooster

This is Onesie the rooster. His owner Laurie (founder/manager of Some Good Market), took a great shot of him the other day and I felt compelled to paint him. Onesie and I have never met but I'm told he's quite the charmer.

Oil on canvas, 20" x 20"

Gibbet Hill painting (progress)

Production is winding down for t-shirts and crafts this season so I'm getting back to the easel. I started this Gibbet Hill painting back in the spring... finally returning to it. I'm remembering why it seemed so daunting: there are so many rocks!

Craft Council Christmas Craft Fair

I've spent the last few weeks in production mode for this event... now it's here! Thanks to my father and my wife for helping me set up my booth today! (I'm going to owe them a dinner or two before the weekend's out.) I've had a lot of interest in my recent "Dominion of Newfoundland" shirts... I'll have a yaffle of them on hand as well as my copper work and linocuts. The Craft Council Christmas Craft Fair starts tomorrow (Thursday, 12-9) at the Arts and Culture Centre. I'm on the second floor mezzanine!
