"Local Sketches" at The Blue Dog Cafe & Gallery, Nov 9 - Nov 30

November 1, 2014
This show is primarily my new smaller works that are inspired by icons found in our local neighbourhoods within Brant County and Hamilton. One of the driving motivations was also to simply work smaller, and take a break from large art that demands so much time and attention. I've found it fun to do and I think it shows in the results. These are all carved on linoleum blocks and printed in my studio on an old poster press given to me by my friend Roger Young.

This piece is a tribute to the very first Tim Horton's ever built. It's on Ottawa Street in Hamilton... They are going to build a museum on top of it.
