Heisenberg and Einstein
Two practice paintings I was planing to execute for art battle Halifax 2014 finals. Unfortunately I only got to do the breaking bad painting as I was knocked out in my round. 
A fun event, and one of the only times painting has seemed like preforming art.

Ninja Gaiden

Inspired by the NES original Ninja Gaiden game. A side scrolling almost impossible ninja revenge thriller. If you've played it or haven't I'd urge you to watch the cut scenes from this game here and here. It has some killer 8bit music, twists and turns, the CIA, Demons, and Ninjas of course. I tried to capture the 80's awesomeness in the game with an 80's style poster. 

12x16 Oil on wood Board (250) also available 8x10 prints, limited run of 11 (15)
See the original at the Dart Gallery's NEStalgia show running from March 21st to the 30th
