So close!  Just a few more days and we'll be on holiday until the new year.

I wanted to share a little something, (exciting!), that I worked on recently with Nikole Herriott of Herriott Grace.  We came up with a design together that I illustrated for her new holiday wrapping paper, available in their shop shortly!  It was silkscreened by Kid Icarus here in Toronto, and will be available in green or gold on white.    Also, if you get the chance, check out their website!  It's beautiful!

I've also been working on four new illustrations for the New York Times Magazine, which I'm very excited to share.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to post them online until after Christmas, but I will when I'm back in the studio!

Happy December, everyone!

The last few weeks before the holidays is always a super busy time, and I'm just finishing up some last minute projects before we can take off for a vacation.  Chris and I will be spending the holidays with family, and I've really been looking forward to going up north, snowshoeing playing in the snow, and sitting in front of the fire with hot chocolate.  So relaxing!

In the past couple of months I've finished up some fun assignments with great clients.  Included in those jobs was one that was just published this morning.  I was asked to illustrate the background city blocks of buildings in Fatbox Inc.'s Missed Connector App video, which can be viewed here.  They look pretty teeny-tiny in the video, so I've attached a larger image of some of the elements pieced together on one city block, below.

Also, the Kid Icarus 2012 Art Calendar that I'd mentioned in my previous post is now available!  I saw it in person over the weekend, and the collection of work in the calendar is pretty fantastic, (and printed beautifully, too!).

There are still a few things in the works that I won't be able to post about until after the holidays, but I look forward to it in the New Year!
