Pantera tigris 'Canuckus' & Ursus arctosMonday, December 02, 2013
I photographed Vancouver Canucks player Tiger Williams in his home in 1994 for Equity Magazine. The art director, Chris Dahl liked the photograph so much that he put the b+w version on the cover. I never bothered to do anything with the colour transparency until I saw my friend, Ian Bateson’s artwork of a bear skull he photographed on a recent trip to Alaska. This is a work where he starts with the photographic image which he then works on with an iPad application made famous by David Hockney called Procreate. I decided to combine Bateson’s image with mine. I like it lots.
