Cloth Hall - Ypres, Belgium | Forgotten Postcard

Cloth Hall – Ypres, Belgium | Forgotten Postcard

The Cloth Hall (or Lakenhal in Dutch) in Ypres Belgium was a warehouse for the prosperous cloth industry during the Middle Ages. These days, it is the home of the In Flanders Fields WWI Museum. I decided to create a Forgotten Postcard of this building because many of the real postcards of Ypres past reflect the devastation of WWI. I wanted … more

Bouchout Castle, Belgium – Forgotten Postcard

Bouchout Castle, Kasteel van Bouchout in Dutch, is located in the town of Meise, near Brussels, and is now at the centre of the National Botanical Garden of Belgium.

This Forgotten Postcard from our autumn trip to Vouliagmeni, Greece was actually completed as a client commission.

Palau Nacional, Barcelona, Spain | Forgotten Postcard

I’ve been itching to create a Forgotten Postcard digital art collage of Barcelona, Spain for quite some time now. Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in the world and I am in love with the colour and audacity of the architecture there. But it was that same over-the-top architecture that held me back. How could I … more

Acropolis, Athens, Greece – Forgotten Postcard

The subject of my latest Forgotten Postcard probably comes as no surprise, to those of you who know I’ve just returned from Greece.

New Brunswick, Canada – Forgotten Postcard

My latest Forgotten Postcard is for those of you who have been asking why I have no digital art work representing Canada. As a Canadian, it’s a valid question.

Ghent, Belgium - Forgotten Postcard

Ghent, Belgium – Forgotten Postcard

The historic waterfront of Ghent, Belgium is one of Flanders’ loveliest waterways. This street, known as De Graslei, borders the Leie River and is a popular spot on a sunny day.

The Atomium is one of Brussels, Belgium’s most recognizable, and strange, landmarks. This unique piece of architecture represents an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.

While working with clients on a custom Forgotten Postcard of The Sainte Catherine/Sint Katelijne Square and church, I was asked what options I could offer.

I’m back at my computer after a fantastic month in North America. This summer we traveled from coast to coast. One of the highlights of the vacation, for me, was a stop at the Grand Canyon.
