Samira is apart of a art exhibit at ARTiculations on Dundas street West.
A sketchbook show, her piece is in the window, the deer skull.
Pretty cool guys!

A friend told me about the artist above, Graydon Parrish. The first thing that came to mind was Shary Boyle’s sculptures.  It would be cool to see them in a show together.

I’m in Niagara Falls for the day, lots of neat signs, and sketchy abandoned places. This one’s hand painted. I’m posting it for Samira, 
Enjoy!

Spent a long day on this… One more week and I’m calling it quits! Although I probably could spend a couple more months on it. The only section I can truly say is finished is probably from the top of the nose down to the chin.

Someone in my class is painting me! This is what he came up with for my skin tones.

Here’s one of my figure drawings I’m working on. This is just my cartoon, nothing special but thought I’d share!

My friend Marco and I started this project last year before I moved to Toronto…
And we finally finished it!

A little background on the project:

Marco Cellucci is a web designer/drummer/sound engineer.
Magida El-Kassis is a photographer/hobbyist of too many things

I facebooked Marco almost a year ago telling him about all this audio recordings i’ve been collecting for the past 6 years or so, and how I wanted to do something with it all, but I didn’t know how to mash it together and make something interesting out of it.
He was curious, so I sent him a handful of recordings and got super inspired by it all.
He found this underlying theme in them, picked out some recordings and added some of his own, and came up with this interesting piece.

Below are some words the Marco wrote for it all.

“Black God”
it is always night
in space we came together
by chance we came alive
done up like chemicals in the dark room
our lives reduced to snapshots
travelled so far just to say
maybe i’ll come home
the buzzing reasons like the wings of bees
telling us we’re born into this life
our spark has one purpose, a life by someone else’s design
one pair of hands controls my fate
mine or theirs i can’t decide
no lord of insect or man will ever deserve the fruits of my labour
am i ready to know what the black god wants?
doesn’t matter, because it’s tonight

He placed it all on his website with some of my imagery to give it a life of it’s own:

Check it out ya’ll, if you have 20 minutes or so, give it a listen while you surf the web or something. And leave some feedback.

If you want to get in contact with Marco, the only way to do so is through twitter.

Enjoy!
