WAKE THE DEAD

I was asked a while back if I would contribute some art for an exhibition/auction to help raise money for Habitat For Humanity, and of course, why would I say no.

So the morning after watching one of Canada’s best hardcore bands, Comeback Kid, I sat down and let the pencil do what it does best. With no real idea in mind, I knew I wanted to do something with a coffin and a rooster, and before long it all started to come together, and the lyrics from one of Comeback Kid’s songs “Wake The Silence, Wake The Dead” just seemed to fit perfectly with the subject matter and so a couple of days later my ode to Comeback Kid was finished.

I am really happy with the outcome and this, along with a new “Tiki Lounge” pinstriped original, will be on show at the exhibition which takes place this Thursday evening, the 3rd of May at The Press Club in Toronto. Both pieces will be on auction alongside some really brilliant artists from Toronto and the rest of the world.
