This Is Electricks

As you know I don't show in Vancouver very often, so here's a chance for everyone to get to see what I'm up to these days. I've put together a set of large and small paintings for ELECTRICKS that opens this Thursday from 7-11pm (May 1st). The show is located at Hot Art Wet City Gallery, 2206 Main Street/6th Ave. I'm also showing with two very talented Vancouver artists Laura Bifano, and Luc Latulippe. Please come down and join us for a few drinks and support a great little gallery. Mister Atomos

Electricks is a group exhibition featuring new paintings, prints, and t-shirts by illustrators Mark “Atomos” PilonLaura Bifano, and Luc Latulippe. Electricks is a carnival of seductive technology and persuasive robots who dwell in a Tesla formed world of electricity and mystery. Deceitful machines. Which seems timely, given this era of Snowden leaks and high tech surveillance. We now live in the science fiction world we had predicted years ago, only not always the inspiring one we had hoped for. But like any good science fiction story there is a hint of hope and new discoveries. This is Electricks.

Happy Thanksgiving

Canadian Thanksgiving is a little different than the American version. I think it has less to do with history and more to do with end of harvest celebrations. In any case, a big hearty meal is always welcome and as a side note I couldn't figure out of to work in a Tofurki so my apologies to all the vegetarians. I drew in plenty of veggies to make everyone happy. Enjoy.

Canadian Motorcycle Stamp

atomos_postmark.jpg

I was honoured when Matt Warbuton at Emdoubleyu Design asked me to illustrate the postmark for the upcoming Canadian motorcycle stamp via Canada Post. This is my first stamp project and something I've always wanted to do since my collecting days as a kid.
Matt's stamp design is clean, beautiful, bold, and features the amazing photography of Paul Joseph. The illustration itself is based on a famous World War II Recruitment poster depicting Canada's military riding into combat on Canadian-designed motorcycles as "Canada's New Army". You can find the background story about the stamps at Emdoubleyu. Also check out the UBC News feature on the stamp's release.

This stamp was released today and available on the Canada Post website.
