Commercial Observer portraits

The Commercial Observer hired me for the 3rd year in a row now (thank you!) to illustrate portraits of real estate bigwigs. I tried out my new portrait style for these and am very pleased with how they turned out.

Guide to Dressing Warmly in Winter

It’s February and getting to that point in the Canadian winter when people start to really complain about the weather. Mother Nature likes to play tricks on poor amnesiac Canadians at this time of year; she springs (pun intended) warm, above zero, spring-like temperatures on us and we get all excited, like: “maybe this year Spring will actually come in February!”. Then she hammers us with another deep freeze, 30cm of snow…or 75cm, if you live in the Maritimes (you poor souls).

Snow, melt, freeze, repeat. And every year Canadians whine about it and forget where they live.

So I thought it would be fun to make a little six-part guide on how to dress yourself warmly for the Canadian winter. This gave me a chance to draw most of my winter gear and plug some of my favourite made-in-Canada companies. I hope some of you will find it helpful.

While it’s not ideal having to own multiple wardrobes just because you live in this country, getting outside in the winter and embracing the season is the best way to survive it. So get dressed warmly and get outside!
