Update Canada Day and the CW Project

So my computer is busted so no new videos for awhile...
I apolize for not posting anything in awhile as I have been busy exploring art outside of my computer.
I have entered a wide range of different painting techniques these days.

For instance Canada Day. I was reading a book recently called "Hater" by author David Moody. The book itself was amazing but the cover which was done in a Dexter like blood splatter is what caught my attention. Blood splatter artwork suddenly seemed so appropriate for Canada Day. Red and White with a Canadian Leaf as Symbol.

I also created a tee shirt featuring the same Design. I wandered around with it on Canada Day ofcourse. Pictures of it will be posted as well so stay informed for later.

Ofcourse the design does represent a deeper meaning as it symbolizes that canda was built on blood and oppression and most of our success as canadians came from our country's ability to help win wars.

On the other hand I am also continuing work on my Summer Street art project. Last year I saw the Movie "Exit Through the Gift Shop" and I was inspired to create last year my facebook friends watched over the summer as I followed my CW (the same one who inspired this site) throughout the streets of Brantford placing up Hero propaganda all over the downtown area of Brantford. This year the project has expanded into Hamilton. And CW and wandered recently into underground practice areas to look for inspiration on what the crowd was creating and we were happy to see that not many stencils are being dropped down here in the Hammer.
We did find some in the end though. :D And put some of our own up. I find even though CW and I have been dropping down stencils in here for about a year now the other night was pretty much our opening act for the summer as about 60 stencils were placed around the downtown area on garbage cans under bridges and in the general How the F@!# did that get there downtown areas. The answer... Ninja Skills
 So without further adeiu I am pleased to drop down for you the simple yet amazing first stencil of the CW Project BOO-YA

  Stay updated on the CYKE WARD PROJECT here, and I will also be posting my usual shananigans, paintings and sketches. Peace all
