YOU KONW WHAT YOU ARE! Monster comics made in the streets, cafes, bars, and clubs of downtown Toronto. After moving downtown I started spending more and more time travelling the city and creating portraits by combining facets from various real life subjects ( one persons nose and another persons eyes and so on). The end result of this public investigation being a collection of drawings showing all sides at once, the contradictory nature of speech and inevitably people at thier worst. My previous artistic explorations had primarily been created in the studio without any models  or even any contact to the outside world. In contrast  these creepy caricatures were drawn entirely on location and were my first artworks intentionally made in public places. With each new body of drawings, I develop a different approach to both the process and presentation in an increasingly interventive application of my storytelling techniques. These techniques include animation, comic books, fine artworks, murals, exhibitions, and street performances. READ More at
