Star Wars-ian Portraits

By in black and white, Gouache, heads, pen and ink, pencil, Portraits, sketches, women

Of characters whose names all begin with “L,” apparently.

Pen & Ink

By in black and white, pen and ink, sketches, women

I got out my old Hunt #102 dip pen and drew a lot of little lines on this lady. Should have used a reference (she’s kind of scary). But at least I can cross-hatch!

Goths

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, brush pen, heads, pen and ink, sketches

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.

Further Sketchbookery.

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, pen and ink, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I need to find a better title for these sorts of posts, because the headings are getting a little repetitive. Anyhow, I bought a new sketchbook, and here are some things I’ve been drawing in it, recently. Faces, science-fictiony things like monsters and spaceships. I’ve been working on work a lot, and can’t show those […]

“FOOT”

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, pen and ink, sketches

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.

Sketches

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, men, pen and ink, sketches, watercolour, women

Some new sketches. I’m always drawing, but not been putting everything up, even though I used to do that.

The Great Antonio

By in montreal, pen and ink, ruttan's place, sketches

Today, a park in Montreal got a bench in it dedicated to the Great Antonio. He’s a former Montreal strongman you can read about here. Meanwhile, here are some items from my flickr feed to do with him. A drawing I did of him, the way he looked sitting in the Metro in the 1980s-2000s […]

Men at Work

By in machines, men, montreal, pen and ink, pencil, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

One woman, too. They’ve been tearing up the schoolyard across the street from me. I’m being driven a little snakey by the roaring of trucks, the constant beep-beep-beep, and the dust. So, I’m consoling myself by drawing the occasional picture of things. They’ll be here all August, so there is probably more to come.

Back at the Comic Jam

By in collaboration, color, pen and ink, Rick Gagnon, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Hadn’t been to the Montreal Monthly Comic Jam for a while. My pal Rick Gagnon invited me over, so I decided to make the effort. Pleasant seeing Rick again. He embellished a couple of drawings of mine. The watercolour is especially great, because he did this (using my paints) in very low light, where it’s […]

Bluebeard and Friends

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, pen and ink, watercolour

Inspired by this engraving by Gustave Doré, I did this picture: Bonus young Anita Ekberg:

Morning Pages

By in pen and ink, pencil, sketches, watercolour

I didn’t draw all of these today. Just was tardy in uploading them. Here are a few of my pals from the Montreal Monthly Comic Jam. Actually, this is last month’s meeting. There was another last night, but I didn’t have the energy to go. Here I was in a bit of a pissy mood, […]

Cross-Hatchery

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, cats, color, digital, pen and ink, pencil, women

These are almost automatic drawings I do, while watching movies on the DVD machine, or petting cats. Cross-hatching is fun for me, but there’s almost no end to it. You simply have to stop, rather than declare something finished. The bonus this time is a little coloured cat picture:

Steve Luxton at the Atwater Library

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, men, montreal, pen and ink, ruttan's place, sketches, women, writing

Years ago, I had the notion that I would make a drawing of every author or poet I heard read, and make some sort of collection. That pledge went by the boards years ago, but I still enjoy drawing people at readings. Not even necessarily the reader. Also the people listening, if I can sit […]
