My Bio

I started working as a professional artist in 1995 at Bioware, a videogame development studio in Edmonton, working as Director of Concept Art for nine years honing my craft and helping leading the charge. I've been working as a production illustrator in Vancouver since 2008 on such series as The Expanse, Once Upon A Time, Falling Skies, The Flash, Supergirl, The Boys, Tales from the Loop, SEE and many others. I have been a guest artist at all kinds of comic conventions over the last decade since my 2013 hometown debut and have enjoyed the hell out of all of it. I'm always looking to meet other artists with great passion for the work and collaborations, share stories, swap tips and talk shop, new projects and networking with the great talent here

Deviantart Friends! I'll be attending Fan Expo Canada next week in Toronto as a guest artist! Love for you to drop by and talk shop and share stories. Booth P006B along the pro wall that surrounds Artist Alley. It's a fantastic show and never a dull moment when you're there. And if you make it, let me know you follow me on Deviantart and we'll work out a special cool kid deal.

Hi, thanks for watching, i appreciate that, cheers


Someday soon, I hope to be able to offer a huge commission payment towards a piece of your work with my ladies in action. That would be another high honor artists like you have done for me over the years. Nevertheless, thanks for brightening my days and making comics stay alive and fantastic! ♥

your work is spectacular. would you care to share some of your keys for dramatic and emotional art?

'Yo Knackers, this guy is posting other people's art, I think including yours, and he's not giving them credit,or a link, or even admitting it's not his art. https://www.deviantart.com/garypopins/gallery

Thanks for letting me know!

Happy Actual Birthday Uncanny!

Happy birthday, Uncanny! Hope you have a great day!
