Earlier this year, I was asked to participate at FITC, which is a 3 day conference that showcases, via lectures, the work of some of the world's top Flash designers, but also includes individuals who are working in motion/interface art and design. This year, FITC was held in Toronto, and although I have almost no expertise in that field, I was invited to speak partly because my work is almost entirely done digitally, using Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop.
Above is a snap shot from my lecture, which was held at the Hilton in downtown Toronto. The image that appears on the screen is my very first attempt at illustration in second year art college, at the Ontario College of Art and Design. The concept is about domestic violence, and so I tried my best to communicate this idea, despite how obvious it appears. The media is acrylic paint, and pencil crayon on illustration board.
I've attached a link to view the entire lecture (which is quite long at 52 minutes), where I discuss the ins-and-outs of my work, as well as some of my process.
Here is the link if you have some time or interest to view it http://www.fitc.ca/media/
You will have to scroll down to look for my name, the title of my lecture is called, "Pretty Pictures."
Enjoy, and many thanks!
