…in old Montreal. Sketched this reader: a very proper older lady, hair slightly blown by the wind. A hoard of daycare kids thundered by several times in a running exercise, and she never looked up, or moved at all. Below, it’s the terra-cotta pencil. I’m getting more interested in backgrounds to these kinds of things. […]

That’s what the girl jumping rope said in an R. Crumb funny, so I thought I could use it here. Tough thinking up titles for these things, since they’re mainly random collections of drawings. I’m cool with that, though. Still doing female figures. Above is one copied from that book. Drawing People. My artist friend […]

A couple of the characters here are taken from Barbara Bradley’s book Drawing People: How to portray the clothed figure. Will have to talk about […]
I’m happy with my new scanner, especially the speed, and lack of power cords to tangle. There’s a lot of black and white stuff I’ve drawn that needs scanning, so here it is. Slovenly walking girls! Assorted dancers! Strange tall women! Guys in suits! I love them all!
I got to be on TV again. A series called Blue Mountain State is shooting here, at the local agricultural wing of our McGill University, which also houses something called John Abbott College. That’s me above, after a long hot day of work. I essayed the role of “Homeless Person,” in the morning, and then […]
