A Real Canadian Winter break....

I know i have been slacking on my posts latley BUT I have been off school after an intense two weeks so that merrits a little away time this here blog. That's not to say I haven't been drawing and painting it up.

I had a very relaxing and enjoyable winter break and by the end it felt like a true Canadian one. We got a huge dump of snow here in Vancouer, I know all of Canada got snow, but we usually don't get snow around Christmas... especially this much!

Amidst the snow I managed to go see the Canucks play the Blackhawks, we lost, but it was my first Canucks game so I had a great time anyway...

... and beer is bloody expensive at GM place.

I painted this on Canvas for my sister for Christmas. Graffiti is not really my thang but I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not gonna lie i used a lot of reference from Google...but she really liked it so that's all that matters.

I can't forget about snowboarding. Since i may not get a whole lot time during my last semester, I tried to get up to the mountain as much as possible. Sometimes the conditions weren't great.

With a little convincing my friends got me to join them in drop-in ice hockey. I was a pretty intimidated, it was my first time, by all the other guys skating around the rink. However, after a few minutes on the ice I could not wait till my next shift.

I'm stoked to play again, maybe next time I'll get a shot on goal.

Also over the break i was lucky enough to get a job painting some murals at a local gym I used to work at. All of these are going to be part of a new Children's Activity center that will attached to the gym. The Monkey character is part of the franchise.

This is one of 2 walls that i painted in the party fasion.

The Oposite wall of the Party Room.

Located in the main Activity room.

I created this character to go with the slogan, located above the stairs so kids will see it on their way out.

And this one is located in the lobby entrance. The first thing seen when entering the building.

(sorry for the bad quality pics, they're taken with my phone)

That's pretty much what I've been up to this winter break...cause i know everyone was curious about my absence.
