I chose to do a series of three paintings for my self-portrait. Each was about 24" by 30" acrylic on Masonite. My concept was to explore pure colour. I wanted to use colour as the main expression of each piece. I had a lot of fun putting colour where I knew it didn't belong. I also wanted to create layers by working back into each painting with sand paper and overlapping images. These are the results.

I was watching a lot of documentaries at the time I drew out this pencil drawing. I also looked at a lot of primitive/tribal imagery for the characters attire. I also just wanted to flesh out some sort of method and way of working out images. I always found drawing the human body a good starting point for image making.

Here's my final poster for the Habitat for Humanity campaign. My concept was the idea of "a roof over one's head." And the image was made accordingly. I had a lot of fun painting this one too.
