Cool treats set 2

Yes I know its winter practically but every one loves ice cream no matter the season. Well except for those dieting prudes who like to lie to them selves and say they only love frozen yogurt. Ick. Did you ever try vanilla frozen yogurt with chocolate sauce. Gagggooollla. Total deniers.
Anyways new to the coolection is a nice set of soft serve ice creams in your choice of flavours or if you prefer your choice of frozen dessert. I still say your still denying your self if you like FY. You only live once after all.
But then some people do love a good frozen custard. I wish we had those here.

Available soon on my personal web site as well.

a new home and a Sunny day

Found a new web hosting place, well I actually had it booked marked for quite awhile but never had to use it till now I guess. It was pretty confusing at first considering it was a bit more complicated to use compared to the old one, but thank God I figured it out eventually. Just finished putting it up at the new place but I noticed it needs a few tweaks or two. Not a problem. Will take care of those later and will place a redirect at the old site too soon as the old place gets up and running. Yup they're still down. Guess its a price to pay for being a bit too easy and popular. None the less I really like the new place, its fast, no advertisements and its been around for awhile which is really great cause you really never know with a new hosting place. They change so frequently and can be gone in a flash. Lets just hope this new place doesn’t have a policy of only giving you something for free for a month. Sometimes these rules are well hidden and have a bad habit of biting you back. Anyways here's the new location of my personal web site.

Oh and as a bonus, here's one original illustration for the latest book I worked on as posted from last time in another blog post. Enjoy.

No GMO's set 4

Well looks like my website's down again. But then again that place has been having many other issues too. Looks like it may be time to find a new place for it. I would love to have a paid one but still can't afford to do that. But money can't guarantee that it would be stable any how.

Anyways here is the last set of the series No GMO's. 
Till I get a new site no personal website. Sigh.....

No gmos set1

New vector yeay!
I decided the time was right to make some nice new vector lables based on all this GMO nonsense that other people try to make us eat. They also seem to think they own the copyright on life.
Last time I checked they are only people, not God. 

Anyways enjoy.
Oh yeah also may be viewed shortly on my web site as well.

Deco shelled face plate

Just perfect for summer vacation time, not that I'm going on a vacation any time soon. :(
Oh well but I have gone in the past and collected these wonderful shells from Florida.
I like to use them every now and then like this project for instance. But not all of them. I'd like to save some of them for reference after all. :)

Anyhow I had this really boring and ugly old light switch face plate I had to look at every day for several years now and I finally had it. Since I always wanted a tropical themed design for my house but currently can't, :( I decided to at least add my personal touch to at least my personal space. The bed room.

I took one brand new plain Jane light switch face plate and I first painted it with a special acrylic that simulated the inside of a shell. A sort of a pearly white look. I then glued an assortment of shells and arranged it in a certain pleasing way. Then finally clear-coated it with an acrylic gloss and for the finishing touches added some simulated pearls.

Now I have something to switch on with a bit of class. 


 Some close ups

Happy Easter Egg

April showers brought these May flowers, on this egg. OK, so its not a real egg and the flowers are imaginary. The lettering isn't even real gold but it is my artwork seeded by my imagination.
But can't you just smell the flowers and doesn’t the gold lettering just glisten on the Happy Easter part?
I think the last Easter egg in this series is my most favorite which is suprising considering that most of the time my favorite stuff feature animal themes and or stuff with toons on them. 
Yup its the last egg but fear not, new things are always in the making.
Kind of fitting don't you think?

Duck egg

A little belated in the show n tell sorry about that.
Its been so nice outside I took care of some of the outdoor stuff.

Anyways What goes well with April showers? A family of ducks of course. 
It was worth making many pics of the egg since this one has so much to see. 

If you look closely you will even see a bonus creature that loves the water. 

 Bottom of egg. See the fishy? ;)

Top of egg. That design on top depicts a rainy cloud. A favorite of our wet friends.

And as always here are the previous eggs shown.

Hen egg

Another symbol of Easter, spring fever and the whole newness of things. The hen and her eggs. I think more so then some silly bunny hiding eggs.
Now a chocolate bunny is another thing. Yum.

Oh and if you're wondering technically Easter is still going on according to the Christian calendar. It goes right up until Pentecost so I'm not late or a slow poke. I already had finished these weeks ago and clear coated them. I just like to make the joy of sharing, last. ;)

Almost the top of the egg. 
A bright blazing sun.

 The bottom of the egg.
 Just another view point of those cute baby chicks.

Resurrection egg

A nice purple egg with the a resurrection theme. OK technically I don't have Jesus directly on the egg but I still have the symbolism. Besides there's not a whole lot of room on the egg for details like having angels around a tomb. But I still have the other stuff on there. Anyways here it is. 

 Lamb of God

Canada and Croatia egg

Its another set of red and blue eggs only with a flag theme this time. The Canada and Croatia egg. 
I decided to create an egg which reflected my birth country Canada while the Croatian egg was based on where my parents came from. So it was only fitting to make these. If this proved interesting to other people other then me I may consider making other flag versions next year when there are more plaster eggs being sold in the stores.  Hope you like them.  :)

Tulip and Camomile egg

This time I got a two for one deal in a flower theme.
Again both eggs are in a nice folksy art style.

The first one is a bit of a tulip design on red background. It sort of looks like a Dutch egg design but an expert in this can probably do a better job then then I have but then I'm only looking for something that is close to that. For the blue egg I decided to make it a camomile theme design since I just love the white camomile against the blue background of a box of a tea I once drank as a child. I don't think they make those any more unless they have a new design that I don't recognize.

After I complete colouring all the eggs I'll probably clear coat for protection, clean up this dusty basket that sitting in the corner of a neglected living room and place the finished eggs in that. Going to look really egg-strodinary.

Latest egg designs can also be soon seen at my website as well.

See first coloured egg here.

Polka-dot egg

The first Easter egg completed is a simple spotted one inspired by the Super Mario bro's video games.
It was made to look like a Yoshi egg but not like the more common green egg in the games. I wanted to have a white egg with pink spots.

Expect the Easter eggs to get more intricate but will have a "folksy" look to them. 
Maybe down the line I may do other themed eggs like character eggs or based on shows eggs but for now these are good enough. :)

Also these eggs are not the real thing. Instead I used these nice plaster eggs I found at a discount store such as Giant Tiger.
They already had some designs on them so I had to sand them off and gesso them to prepare them.

I may plan on purchasing and making more in the future if I feel like it. 

Happy Easter. :)

Projects to be made....

Started working on some new small projects.
1. Is going to be a decorated light switch with some of the shells I collected in past vacations to Florida.
A great use for some of my souvenirs for an otherwise boring object on the wall. Plus I really go sick of looking at that old light switch plate with the plastic corner chipped out of edge. That thing has been there for ages. Also later I can always take my little art piece with me should I need to.

2. Finally got around to painting those fake Easter eggs. I bought them last year but never got around to do much with them. I got as far as sanding down those generic images that came with the eggs and then gessoing them for colour. I coloured one white egg with pink spots. It reminds me of a Yoshi egg from the Mario bro's games.
I hope to colour more in the next day or so. So we'll have to see if I get around to showing them off in time for Easter. Maybe afterwords but that's OK.

3. I'm removing some old patchwork decorations from an old pair of jeans I decorated years ago, The patches are still great so I plan on sewing them back on to an old jean jacket along with another large patch I salvaged from an old jean purse. I think it'll look great.

4. Last but not least there's this really old project I like to finish that I started long ago but sort of forgot about. Will explain later.

Then there's always more vector graphics to be made.

Blue Moth with LED Bulb

New year, new vector.
A new spin on an old classic. A blue moth in love with the concept of this new kind tech and the fact of not dieing from the heat of the older bulb types. Not sure if I'm going to make another one of these but then you never know what kind of tech may come down the road in the future. So will see.
Now available for viewing on my web site too.
