ff Season Farmer was my First painting done with oils. Bellingham is a flourishing landscape for agriculture and vegetation. We have an abundance of local organic grown produce and great plant nursery. Bellingham can also be very gray and very gloomy. This was painted during the gray and gloomy times.


painted “Slims” about a year ago now as part of a series of boxers that you would not see at a Gym, but rather in a basement or bedroom honing their self taught skills. They are the type of people that find their love of the sport by stumbling across a pair of their grandpa’s old gloves in an attic, and make punching bags out of pillows tied together with a shoelace. The intrinsic value of learning the art of a punch goes above and beyond the value of the prize.


egs, came from a character I was drawing in my notes one day at school. The Eskimo like hood was a recurring feature in a lot of my sketches just because of my frustration with hair styles and techniques. I felt whatever I tried doing the hair always looked the same, so I covered it up. Some of the original doodles also had arms but as I continued experimenting with the character I found that arms were not necessary to complete the anatomy. The painting appears to be bending in at the bottom, and thats because it is. I wrapped the canvas around a very poorly home made frame that is held together with nails and super glue.


ucas ourgeau Boise Idaho speedflying, BASE jumping, canopy sports


got into skydiving a couple years ago when I did my first tandem jump, which was actually a Groupon deal! Since then I have been hooked and I’ve moved on to other

canopy sports, like speedflying, and also a little bit of BASE jumping. Speedflying has been my main focus and my favorite canopy sport so far. This is only the beginning of an epic adventure that has already changed my life. I know it will continue to shape the rest of my life for as long as I’m around!

his project is simply a copper intaglio, which is

a technique of etching into a wax material to expose the copper to the acid in which it is sunken into to, thus creating the etched image. The image, titled “thinned, skin”, is that of a surrealist-esque rabbit, wearing a rabbit pelt. This creation touches on the idea that no matter how many different skins that a person, animal, being or thing may try to wear, they are always going to be wearing their own skin. My main goal for this piece was to prove to my professor that I could create something that couldn’t be deemed “cute”.
