Hey everyone, have not had a lot of time lately to update the site or to post on the blog here. I have been really quite busy with the summer markets, commercial work and piles of commissions that have come my way. In addition that that, I have a new book that I am launching this weekend, and raising printing costs through a Kickstarter campaign, Click here to visit the campaign. It is a K-Gr3 Curriculum activity book that is totally based on Edmonton’s history and culture, a fantastic resource for learning on two levels! So that is keeping me on my toes, I have been planning the book for about two years now so I have put tons of thought into it. Now that it is so close I still feel a bit unprepared as there are so many things to consider, and elements to the book that it is a lot to keep track of. But, I am doing pretty good, and have hired a few people to help me out with it all. Keep posted with developments on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts and look for @helloyegbook as well. Cheers.
Although my blog and website does not look like I have been doing all that much, I have been. I plan on updating it soon, but until then here is a list of the Summer Markets that I will be at, hope to see you out there!

A project that has been in the works now for a few years in now all wrapped up. I was asked to create three paintings that were uplifting and warm feeling, based on specific dimensions for placement in the Cardiac Unit of the University of Alberta Hospital. After a few rounds of sketches and discussion I painted these three beauties.
I had friends recently ask me to make a illustrate a image for their soon to be born son. They wanted their favorite animals represented, foxes, owls and wolves. I thought it best fitting to have the illustration set at night with a full moon for the wolf to howl at, owl to hoot, and foxes to be tucked away in a den.
