"An artist is always learning, always evolving, always growing. Your best piece of work will always the next one. Start chasing."
I have started putting together my first ever (limited run) Artbook, which will be published and available early 2012
I met with a printer and publisher/distributer last week, and have everything ready to roll other than building the actual book!
This high quality book of awesome will include 60pages of artwork, a detailed description of my vector process , doodles, some of my meandering thoughts, and a bunch of new art (like exclusive never-will-be-posted online- paintings)
At this early stage of the book, I would love to hear any ideas or suggestions on what you guys (as you are a great, and good looking, example of my audience) would like to see or have me talk about in the book, any input would be greatly appreciated

after almost 3 years of work, my first book has been published!
From the author:
This 72 page illustrated book written by a passionate father trying to teach his two teenage children something about electricity. As an engineer I was surprised when looking through my son’s Grade 6 Science book to see the same material introducing the topic of electricity to my son that I saw when I was in Grade 6 back in the 1960s. It showed the basics of static charge like a balloon sticking to a wall and pictures of light bulbs and conventional wall light switches.
Today, in the 21st Century, we live in a different world. The advent of the microchip and computers made teaching the subject of electricity much more relevant and fascinating. My career has taken me along some amazing journeys and has allowed me to see things, which I thought incomprehensible, clearly in a different way.
I wanted to share what I know with my sons in such a way that any entry level or high school student can grasp. The concepts laid here are not complicated. All one needs is imagination. The heart of the digital information age involving computers, smart phones, jump drives, music, video, and cameras are explored through a young girl named Rachel. All this is explained in a non-technical pragmatic way through a strongly visual, picture book format.
I am hoping that in some way this work, inspired by the illustrations provided by Justin Currie, will spark further interest and study in Science and Engineering. I can tell you, it is one heck of a ride, and …… it is just beginning!
