I wanted to share some pictures that I took of the night sky the weekend of June 21st. When stuff gets over my head I like to just look up at the night sky. Somehow it makes things all better. Things just feel more simple, which is a peculiar statement since our universe is so complex. I think it’s the complexity of our universe that makes my dilemmas feel like they aren’t as troublesome as I think they are. Looking up at the stars makes all the little things melt away and fills me with inspiration. I hope the night sky and whatever lies beyond can inspire you as much as it inspires me. I wanted to share some pictures that I took of the night sky the weekend of June 21st. When stuff gets over my head I like to just look up at the night sky.

My collaboration with Canon has been great! After spending 3 solid weeks filming “Hiding Place” and working with my new T5i, I wanted to share my favourite camera features that made the process so smooth. 

image

Not only does this camera capture incredible photographs it also does a pretty sweet job with high definition movie shooting. I love being able to switch from regular shooting mode to film mode with just one switch. 

image

The flip screen has become a lifesaver when I’m shooting a process film. With the flip screen I can see exactly how the shot is going to turn out. No more running around to the back of the camera to see if I got the shot right. 

image

The touch focus has worked wonders for me. While I’m shooting a movie I’ll move around, a lot. With my T2i I always had to make sure that I was standing in the same place so the camera would remain focused. With the T5i I just have to touch the screen to tell it to focus on that space and it will make sure it stays focused, even when I’m moving around.

I am happy to share the first glimpse of an awesome project that I am taking part in. Canon Canada approached me to be part of the True Originals Campaign which showcases the works of various Canadian artists. 
I have been filming the process of my latest painting with the new Canon Rebel T5i. Also, I’ll take you through my favorite features on the camera in another video. Check back soon for the next posts!—You can learn more about the Canon Rebel T5i here.

Anonymous asked: "So lovely! What sort of reference do you work from for your illustrations?"

Thank you so much! I combine many references together - I also photograph myself sometimes to get a specific pose right. 

Not even close to finish - Game of Thrones audiobooks make great company though.
Primetime.
