Back Tracking

Alright, after trying to think of a proper title for my blog (right now it's "X" Thoughts but that is subject to change), I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. OK, my name is Billy, I'm a student in Toronto right now studying visual arts.

With my artwork I'm working with a lot of ideas right now, a lot of it focusing around thought, humanity, and art. I like to draw gods and heroes and interpret them in my own creative way. For the past little while, I have been focusing on supreme gods; recreating them with almost a sense of "googlization" yet trying to keep traditional aspects of these gods and heroes. I like the ideas around God or gods and heroes and all that with regards to our thoughts. I also use to focus my work on the duality of the organic and the technological and I feel that I still use elements of that duality within my work. Here's a couple of really rough sketches to give you an idea of what I'm talking about...

The first drawing here with the many arms, I have been working on it for a long time. I never seem to be happy with it but I think I'm getting somewhere now. An interesting play of the traditional, new age, technology, pop culture, lots of stuff, should be cool. Hopefully I'll have something done for the god in the next little while and I can show a sneak peak.

a dinosaur and a robot...

Ok, here's a painting I've been working on for a little while, its about half way done. It's a nice beautiful landscape, something out of my parent's living room or rec room and I slapped a t-rex about to fight a 1980s robot. Thought it would be funny having these two titans from the past and future dishing it out. I think next time I'm just going to buy some cliche paintings and paint/draw away. Thinking of a sasquatch and an alien for the next one.

Welcome to my blog...

Alright, well I was suggested by some friends of mine that I should get a blog going so here I am, starting a blog. On this blog I'm going to be posting some rough sketches and artworks that I'll be working on. Also I'll be posting my ideas, photos, links, and my day-to-day events with personal shenanigans. Until then, here's a funny picture of myself as a cartoon-ish character that I did on my spare time. Enjoy!
