I am currently a second year design student at Macewan University in Edmonton. My passion is art and design of all kinds, I have designed tattoos, logos, and am always working on commissions of all sorts. I plan to marry the love of my life after I'm done school and to use my skills to make a living. I enjoy music very much and own a ferret who also keeps me on my toes! You can contact me at cswain81@hotmail.com if you do not have an account with us here on DA.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my work!
Interests
So with a very success year of university behind me I get a little time to myself and play around with a few new toys before the next term. I picked up up some Golden: Open Acrylic paints which are a slow drying acrylic as I wanted to have the option for a longer chance to blend my colors. So far I noticed they do indeed last longer, I tend to lay the paint on thin because im a fan of glazing but i would say I get about an hour or two before they dry to an unworkable state (on canvas). I also picked up a Masterson's Painter Palette which keeps the paint you didn't use on your palette fresh for days, I highly recommend it and will post a link at the bottom of this post. So I have been taking a suggestion from one of my illustration instructors and have been painting acrylics on illustration board, the colors pop really well and I love the fact I have an easier time with smaller details but am finding the board to warp after awhile so I'm pretty undecided on it yet. I have 3 paintings left on my list of things to do this summer and hopefully don't have any issues preparing for my next term, but I hope you guys have a great summer too!
