I'm proud to present the completion of a longtime labour of love. I play in Vancouver band Skookum and enjoy the process of writing, recording and performing our music. Music is a language that has no borders and boundaries and I enjoy pursuing every creative outlet available to me. I've been fortunate enough to make it a full time pursuit. This song started as a guitar riff, then had lyrics which were revised and rewritten several times. Finally I penned the song that it is: "Rye (Can't Remember)".
I went to high school in 100 Mile House BC which provided me with a tight circle of friends and good times that I think helped make me the person who I am today. Yes, the song is about drinking and it's not supposed to change the world; but to me it invokes the passion and spirit of youth, friendship and the Canadian condition.
The video was shot and produced by my longtime frind Jason Williams. I did the animated scenes and caricatures. So check it out!
It's Rye...and it's what we're drinkin'!
For those of you who are into that "Rock n Roll Music", I play guitar and sing in a local Vancouver band called Skookum. We are set to release our 2nd album with a kickoff party at the Roxy Nightclub on Granville Street. For more info about the album itself check out the Media Release here: SKOOKUM - 'Rockstar Dreamers'
Hello, it's been a busy couple months with Dry Grad Season and the summer party, wedding, office bbq and other events kicking up.
Thanks to Gabriel Mark Hasselbach at Sassabrass Entertainment & Wind Tunnel Multimedia for shooting and posting this great video of me drawing at an event today downtown Vancouver.

Woops! It's been a while since I've updated! Over the past couple months I've been steadily working on various projects which I plan to share soon in the journal as well as updating the site all around with all my new projects. I've also worked feverishly on my band Skookum's 2nd album cover. The album is titled "Rockstar Dreamers" and is set to be independantly released next month.
I'm just swinging into Dry Grad season now so if you're a high school grad this year, I'll be seein' ya soon! I'm also working on some chalkboards! Can't wait to show them off....just need....sleep....dry grads....all-nighters...so fun! So late!!! Here's a recently completed and classy logo for a new blogsite called Crooked Icons. The guys had the design all laid out and I was able to bring their thoughts to the printed page...gold Jerry! Gold!!!

I was quite touched recently to be asked if one of my caricatures could be used as a tattoo. A young lady from Bathgate England saw my caricature of Alice Cooper as a golf/rocker and asked my permission. So here it is! How cool!

The steady stream of projects from January through April have levelled off now and perhaps in good time as party bookings are filling up my June, July and August calenders! Don't forget folks, Party Caricatures will be a hoot at your BBQ, Staff party, mixer, birthday, wedding, bar mitzvah or pool party. Also, check the Journal for my most recently completed cartoon soon to be printed in the Jewish Community Centre Annual booklet.
It's now Grad and Festival Season!
I've recently updated a few pages including the Corporate/Business page and Studio Art pages: Gift Caricature and Illustration. I've been updating with the latest completed projects. Hopefully, this will illustrate an even clearer idea of the range and scope of artwork I have been designing and working on for a variety of different projects!
I will be drawing caricatures at the new Ultimate Seafood Junkies location in Langley BC this Saturday from 12pm - 4pm. Come and get your toon done and check out the great new store! Click here for directions
March 18th, A few of the projects, I have been a part of are now open! Ultimate Seafood Junkies is officially open for business so if you are in the Langley, BC area, go check it out! I've been getting some great projects now from the U.S. Of course, any and all projects are welcome from near and from abroad! Heck, I'll even do cartoon work for Klingons! I have reactivated the MyArtClub page. It was my first official website, and I will feature some of my fine art work there for sale. Finally, Spring is here folks and grad season will soon be upon me! For those who don't know, I do a great deal of Dry Grads each year which are "alcohol-free" dusk to dawn all-nighters. Sleep becomes a much desired daytime activity.
February 26th, 2008 Hello again! I have updated some work I've recently completed in the new Journal page. I have completed some Chalkboard art for the soon to open Ultimate Seafood Junkies! I am proud to say I've been involved with helping them design their branding, business cards, website, menus and now their menu boards which will be seen at their premier location in Langley (I've told them they'll have 30 before too long - haha - hoping to keep myself busy) ***I'm also updating links. If you have a site and think a link sharing would be worthwhile for both parties, feel free to send me a message and we'll hook up. Thanks for staying tuned!
January 29th, 2008 Keeping very busy so far this year! I have a few projects on the go and thought I'd create a page that will help you see the latest projects I've done. Just in case I haven't the time to update it on each page. It should make for a pretty cool diary of the most recent work to date! Go to the Journal here! December 3rd, 2007
I'm very excited to announce that my band, SKOOKUM, has been featured in this weeks edition of the Surrey NOW Newspaper! Our CD Release is this Friday December 7th and the article explains how we're releasing a debut CD as well as our Premier issue of Skookomix, the comic book I've developed based on our band, the music scene and trying to make it in the music biz altogether. Check out the article while it's still there, here!

I'm excited to present my first Party piece for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games Construction and Organization Crew! I was invited to their wrap-up party this past weekend and was asked to do things a little differently. Taking one large board, I drew everyone on one page in a gigantic montage. What turned out was the most unique party caricature I've done to date! I was invited by an attendee to do the same thing at a 60th Birthday party with much the same surprise and excitement from guests! I think I may have found a new market! The Party Caricatures Memorial Board! I can only hope it turns up framed in one of the venues at the 2010 Olympic games! Check it out:
November 12th, 2007 Anybody interested in what I'm doing with my Rock Band, SKOOKUM? We're releasing our first CD, "Big Phat Sounds". Our release party is December 7th, at Cheers in Delta! It will be a great show and I will be doing caricatures there as a special extra for everyone who wats to come down and buy a copy. Come down and support my Rock Habit!

I'm pleased to announce that Seasonal bookings are well under way as well as grads for 2008! Way to start early schools! Most recently completed project is company branding design for a line of products called Posh. I enjoy working with people and helping them realize their own ideas and vision of their own brand.
Well, that was a great summer! I've been doing so many events and projects that I need to put time aside to update everything! I'll be likely revamping this site a bit here to distinguish the online portfolio from the services so it's even easier for one to see everything I offer and everything I do and have done!
Christmas time and that whole holiday season is fast approaching so keep Corycatures in mind if you are planning a staff party (Party caricatures are a blast!) or planning a unique gift (Artwork for those who already have everything!)
Here's the latest little project I completed for Province staff writers Jason Brough and Mike Halford. It's a cartoon banner for a new Vancouver Canucks Discussion blogspot on the Province site called, the Orland Kurtenblog: Click here to see the Kurtenblog
Thanks for being drawn to Corycatures! Hope all of you are having a great summer so far. I have been working non-stop for the past couple months drawing at Grads and BBQ's and weddings and corporate events and much more! I will soo have some of my more recent projects posted as well.
Hello, thanks for being drawn to Corycatures! I'm happy to have been contracted to do some work for the gang at Riptown media, who host Bodog Nation.

Also have a look at my work with the Green Garden Gang! I designed all artwork as well as the characters and the landing page. I'm looking forward to the potential success! Here's to a good year!
