I will be exhibiting/selling some art prints at this year’s Fan Expo (comic con) which takes place here in Toronto at the end of august. For this event I’m creating a few new pieces inspired by video games and other awesome nerdish things. Below is my first go—something which may or may not appeal to everybody but considering that what seems like half the planet is playing these games I was inspired. I actually really enjoyed painting all the military details and using a very grimy, desaturated colour scheme. My reference for the buildings in the background came from my recent trip to Granada in Nicaragua, a country that has seen its own share of bullets. For those who want to know, the painting was executed using my usual combination of watercolour and pencil on paper. I used watered-down acrylic for the splatters.
