The artwork

This digital drawing took me about 3 months to complete. In actual truth, the drawing itself took maybe a month. Gathering the statistics and facts and references, and then trying to figure out how to make visual representations out of each and every UCP Shenanigan was a task in itself, was much more time consuming to laying it all down.

Fun facts about the “UCP Shenanigans” drawing

  • The idea for the drawing started out as a simple line drawing concept that aligned more with a cartoonish style – it wasn’t going to work.
  • I started in the middle of the drawing with the idea that Premier Jason Kenney would/will throw Dr. Deena Hinshaw under the bus
  • I wasn’t sure at first if digital (vs tactile pencil and paper) would be the better medium choice for this particular work, however, I soon discovered that I needed to move and/or resize existing content.
  • There is a lot of fine print in this drawing. You may need to use a magnifying glass on smaller prints (8″ x 10″) to see everything clearly.
  • Current as of July 2020, there are approximately 58 shenanigans referenced in this drawing. not ALL shenanigans, just to be clear on that
  • The UCP Shenanigans just kept/keep coming but I made a decision to stop adding to the drawing in July 2020. Will there be a part 2…? In the interim, consider printing off the UCP Shenanigans 2.0 crossword puzzle companion piece to this original poster artwork.
