A birthday card for a friend, with some cats painted on it in watercolours. I don’t think I’ve posted this yet.

Mystery Package

By in ruttan's place, sketches

You never know what you’re going to find if you go out your front door. Just outside was an Amazon package. I checked the address to make sure it had been delivered to the right place. It had. It’s the day before my birthday. What the heck was this? Opening it up revealed a lot […]

Star Wars, etc.

By in black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Posting various sketches I’ve been doing. Mainly to do with the new “Star Wars” movie, which I finally saw, and “Emma” by Jane Austen. Star Wars had some pleasant new characters, but it was basically a rehash of the same old plot. I mean where did they find the time and materials to build a […]

Heater Cat

By in cats, Jack's House of Cats, ruttan's place

I fancy that Mister Boggedy looks sad on the heater alone, since his sister passed away. He’s not on great terms with Nora the little black and white cat, but both of them seem to treat me as a large, incredibly ugly and inept mother cat.

Doot Doot

By in color, digital, heads

Feeling uninspired, which might be clear from this image. But at least my digital technique is getting better. Things seem to go up and down. I should really be doing watercolours, but I need better self-motivation.

First Snow

By in montreal, ruttan's place

My nice neighbour Sylvie is trying to coax a little declawed cat out from under a front porch around the corner. Unfortunately, she’s doing this by rapping with spoon on a closed can of cat food. I think she’d do better with opening the can, leaving it a little distance away from the gap under […]

BOO by Neil Smith

By in Book Reviews

Finished the book BOO by Neil Smith. It’s a bittersweet fantasy story about childhood, getting over pain, and forgiveness. A little boy wakes up in the afterlife, a mysterious place where everyone is the same age as he is. The tone is gentle; for me it’s an improvement over Smith’s book of short stories BANG […]

A Montreal Moment

By in montreal, ruttan's place

I have a middle-aged neighbor named Michel, who lives across the way here on rue de Rouen. Yesterday afternoon, when I was lugging my bike down my front stairs, he beckoned to me, and crossed the street, wanting to talk. I was headed off to Expozine, the November book, comics and alternative art fair. But […]
