To give you a quick tour of this place, the “portfolio” section is a 36-project overview of my fave illustrations from the last decade, a mix of editorial, commercial, and personal work. The “shop” section includes dozens of my art prints, some of which are personal projects and others that are illustration reprints. 
Albertastan 24” square print ($60 CAD)

In May of 2015 Canadian conservative politician Peter McKay thought he was clever when he referred to the newly NDP-led Alberta as "Albertastan," and here I am thinking I'm clever by taking the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic's crest (used 1937-1992) and editing it a little. The original was made by Soviet graphic artist Ruben Arkadevich, and included sun, oil rig, wheat, cotton, and slogans. I tripled the number of oil rigs, replaced the cotton with wild roses, and made sure "get 'er done" figured prominently. Alberta, I may not live in you any more, but you're still one of my muses. Includes an inch-and-a-half margin. Printed in an open edition, signed and dated on reverse.
