Pair o’ Cats

By in cats, color, paintings, watercolour


I’m calling this a “warm-up,” since I’m really working on a much bigger job. Still, this taught me some things, and finishing it freed up a watercolour board.

Spring-like Sketches

By in color, montreal, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour


It was actually possible, yesterday, to sit on the balcony and draw this little postal van, illegally parked across the street.


The above is a tiny little thing, but the colours are pretty.

By in color, digital

Rod McKuen’s Co-Existence Bagel Shop Blues

By in black and white, collaboration, comics, Rick Gagnon, sketches


The passing of Rod McKuen the other month reminded me of this comic a friend of mine and I did, based on a spoken word recording made by this famous (maybe in-famous) poet.
