I like this pair. It’s a music teacher and his student. The background is what you get if you mess your paint around after applying it to dry paper. I’m often frustrated in trying to get a smooth perfect wash, but find this sort of thing much more interesting to look at.

A confrontation with Eskeeta Mary-La, High Priestess of the Puppy God Paal.
Another drawing by Gagnon from last Friday evening, which I inked today. He has a large comic and original comic art collection, and knowledge of styles and inking patterns I can only guess at. Those trees, rocks, and puffs of smoke, and that Jack Kirby-ish machinery, for instance. He also likes big heads in containers.
Back to the bar, with Rick and Marr. Again, Marr did some drawings in his own little sketchbook, but I didn’t get snaps. Rick and I drew heads. Above is werewolf Orson Welles, by me, inked by Rick. Below, Leonard Cohen-like bar guy, drawn by Rick and inked my me. But I did that later, […]
Still been sick and busy. Plus, my little cat is at the vet’s getting her tubes tied, or ripped out (whatever they do to spay little cats). So not much on the sketch front, outside of this. Apparently, I missed strange goings on at the Montreal Comic Jam last night, which I will have to […]

Above are some faces from a book of old pictures and Elizabethan miniatures. I’m finding I’m happier and draw better faces if I try to consider the face […]
Saint Patrick’s day has come and gone, but the parade is today. So, last night, they were getting ready the green food colouring for the beer at the Cock N’ Bull pub. And I was drawing mildly salacious scenes happening around me and my friends Rick and Marr. Rick inked these, or in the case […]
More drawing from the other night, meeting with friends at the Cock N’ Bull bar. Rick Gagnon was there. Marr was there, too, but he didn’t stay long enough to draw anything. Still, Rick was able to ink things like this drawing above of mine of one of the servers. Below is my drawing, embellished […]
This warrior character fears his masculinity is being compromised by his having to ride a giant quarter-rabbit. But the villagers will probably be as terrified as ever. He should have and painted frightening runes on the sides of his mount, and tied victims’ skulls to the saddle, in order to increase the menacing effect.
