REDFOXX’S RESORT

Since having moved to Toronto I have been very fortunate to have met some amazing people, and one of those just happens to be a young lady called Nancy who commissioned me to do a little outdoor sign for her two new homes in Kitchener and the US.
Here is one of them:

KUSTOM BICYCLE

Things have been rather busy here at the Breath Of Fresh Air office so we’ll get this blog updated as soon as possible.

But I am pretty stoked to introduce my new project that I have been working on for some time. Although not quite design or illustrator orientated it’s something I’ve really been excited about and finally got it out on it’s first ride last night.

As with any kustom build, it’s never finished and I already have some changes/add ons in mind, which will all take place early next summer. But for now she will do!

DIRECTOR’S CHAIR

I got the chance to do something a little different recently when Canadian director George D’amato asked me to spice up his director’s chair with his name and some pinstriping. It was not an easy job as One Shot enamel paint and raw canvas do not like each other. But with a bit of research and some advice from some great Canadian stripers it soon got done and delivered. With an overly excited client at the end I couldn’t be happier.

CANADIAN HOT ROD MAG

I was fortunate enough to run in to Terry, the owner and editor of Canadian Hot Rod Magazine a while back, and he was telling me about his idea of doing a graphic/sticker/shirt for the magazine involving a beaver and the Super Bee logo. A couple of weeks later Terry and I were throwing back sketches and finally came up with their new t-shirt and sticker.

If you want to get yourself one of these t-shirts and/or stickers hit them up on the Facebook page to find out how.

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.

The great folks at Fuel Magazine, Australia’s top hot rod magazine, decided my iPhone photo of my green “Kustom” pinstripe panel was worthy of adding to their Phoneography page on their website. Thanks guys!
