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.

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.

I have no idea what that backdrop means, but I’m happier with the painted characters.

busness11

This is me, working on colour and light in a purely digital format. I’m trying to limit my palette. And still keep it interesting.

rue-notre-dame

At least I think that’s where it is. I didn’t write down the name of the street when I snapped the photo I painted this from.

Green Girl

green-girl

One of the nice things about digital painting, which I think I’ve said before, is that it’s infinitely workable. This picture was sitting around for a while, looking lousy, but came to life for me with the leather jacket and streak of purple.

Rod McKuen’s Co-Existence Bagel Shop Blues

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

bagel-shop

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. The “official” beats hated these, as sort of climbing onto the bandwagon, but I think they’re funny and unpretentious. I did the pencils and Richard Gagnon did the beautiful inks. The text, of course, is copyright by the poet.
