I started a Patreon. Go to it and GIVE ME MONEY.
I’m sorry that came on too strong.
I mean, I started a Patreon back in 2015 and I’m finally cultivating it. You should journey over there and contribute so I’ll keep getting to eat food and live and stuff. Oh and you can donate to the tiers and get awesome art from me. Go check it out!
WE HEART PAYING FOR ADAM’S ART
I’ve been trying to muster up the courage to do a new Batwoman piece since 2013. Back in 2012 I created this piece:
It came out exactly as envisioned. It was routinely lauded as one of the best pieces I’d ever done, and I tended to agree. I’ve done numerous art works since this piece, but I’ve been hesitant to tackle another Batwoman since I didn’t think I could top this one.
Finally, in mid 2017 I knew I had to re-do this piece. I lined up a model, and I knew the medium. I just had to find the right time. At the end of January 2018, I found the time…
I am thrilled with how well this piece came out. Plenty of detail, an enticing colour scheme and a great pose provided by Ottawa model/burlesque performer extraordinaire Randi Rouge equal a piece I feel tops the original Batwoman.
Now I just have to prepare myself to top this image in a few years…
(FYI Randi Rouge just started her own Patreon site – visit her here RANDI ROUGE PATREON)
Last december I managed to check out the At Home With Monsters exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario here in Toronto. It contained items, artwork, sculptures, props and costumes from the personal collection of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, director of such films as Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Blade 2, Crimson Peak and his latest, The Shape of Water. It was such an inspiring and magical display of work. I’d planned on doing art based on my experience there and first out the of gate is this drawing of the Angel of Death. This inspired creation comes from the film Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.
I can practically guarantee there will be more art based on this fantastic exhibit as it continues to haunt my dreams in the most beautiful ways possible.

I had a busy December of working on commissions and christmas gifts. Somehow, I found time to make some art based on the latest Star Wars adventure, The Last Jedi.
