I submitted the top image here to Imaginism Studio's latest art contest, coinciding with an Alberto Ruiz interview. The topic Alberto chose was "girl collage", and I couldnt help but tackle it in watercolour. There were some really great entries, and more then anything its awesome to see a community centered around being excited about art. I was a runner up with the most user votes and I won a free book from Alberto's Brand Studios!

The second image I painted plein air on my lunch hour. This is of my buddy Kevin Phibbs, a very talented and cool artist sketching away in Strathcona Community Gardens, Vancouver BC.
