Woof City, Nacho and Alvaro, Valentine Bears

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and this was the first one that left me a little bitter. Do not worry; it was for other not-so-obvious personal reasons. I’m quite happily single and in the ongoing process of building a decent relationship with myself. Something many of us ignore. Shuffling through an ocean of Facebook […]

Unleash Your Inner Beast

This adrenaline pumped design is part of the FURociTEE sports collection and is ideal as a gym t-shirt or an motivational poster to give you that extra push! It comes in a variation of 3 colors, red on black, black on red and the original look I was going for, purple on gold. Please feel […]

Beast Mode Engaged

I may be anything but a gym-rat. I may eat healthily, go for long walks on a regular basis, but I cannot get myself into a gym more than 5 times a year. Never the less, the motivational designs on gym-wear has always fascinated me. The kind of quotes that inspire you to better yourself […]

The Big Bearooski

I started working on this design before I had even dreamed of FURociTEE and working on an entire collection of bear themed illustrations. The tagline of “strong, sweet and slightly nutty” had popped up in a hilarious conversation with a friend over Facebook and we determine that it would make for a good design, still […]

Portrait – Woof City, Nard McQuade

My most recent Woof City commission portrays Nard McQuade. Out of all the characters in the series that I have worked on thus far, Mr McQuade was the only one I knew nothing about and wasn’t given any details as to how his character should translate in the poster. Yet the lack of information engulfed […]

Portrait – Woof City, Coco Montrese

Ru Paul’s Drag Race has become a new TV obsession of mine. And after binge watching 7 seasons in just a few weeks, I was both taken by surprise and extremely flattered to be asked to draw season 5 contestant Coco Montrese as part of the Woof City project. For this portrait I took inspiration […]

Portrait – Woof City, FJ Briers

After posting George Unda’s Woof City portrait, “United Bears of Color” representative Fred James Briers approached me to create a set of illustrations for their upcoming event. He enjoyed the concept of my previous portrait so much that he even asked if they could use the name “Woof City” for the event, giving it an […]

Portrait – Woof City, George Unda

In the past few months I have had the pleasure of getting to know George Unda through many interesting conversations over Facebook, and what started out as a star struck fascination has quickly turned into a lovely friendship. During one of our many conversations I learned that we shared a favorite movie in common, so I […]

On October of 2014, my friends Shawn and Rick Fowler were finally allowed to fulfill their wish and be united as a family. The love between these two wonderful people is one for books and movies. It genuinely fills my heart with so much joy knowing that in this day and age the world is […]
