Some doodles done at my friend’s place, with her blue roller pen. Horsies! Kitties! A dude!
Bernie Mireault and his Jetsonian efforts inspired me to make a doodle of George Jetson, unencumbered by reference to the real thing.
This morning I was annoyed at all the construction noise outside, so drawing this felt like a good way to get rid of my frustrations. The title “Dig Pigs” is from graffiti I saw on one of this city’s ubiquitous “ROAD CLOSED” signs. It made me laugh.
Some strange types, on a loose sheet of typing paper. Do they even call it “typing paper,” now? Copy paper, I guess. I still like drawing on it with pens.
I need to find a better title for these sorts of posts, because the headings are getting a little repetitive.

I’ve been working on work a lot, and can’t show those […]
This is a little sketch I drew for my friend, on a scrap of scratch paper. She thought I was trying to spell the word “FOOT” with the background handrails, and the bike wheels. But this is just a coincidence.
More from the sketchbook. “Tiny pict-chas,” as my sis used to refer to them, when she wanted to get my goat. I enjoy the line made when the black roller pen gets wet, and mixes a little with the colour.
Drew a tiger while on the phone last night. And then coloured and textured it here.
I’ve been so deep into digital, that I began to wonder whether I could still do useful things with paper. Below is a drawing a made during a phone coversation (they’re often long, at least with my friend). Black ballpoint pen in my sketchbook. Above is a made-up woman painted on a sample of my […]
Some new sketches. I’m always drawing, but not been putting everything up, even though I used to do that.
Drawn while talking on the phone. I can do this because another part of the brain is being used. If I were reading or writing something, I totally wouldn’t be able to hear the conversation. But drawing, that’s different.
