Party Pair

By in sketches, watercolour, women

One of my more hipster-y sketchbook characters has picked up a partner I like a lot: Still working, sketching painting. In a better mood today, but the weather is changeable. Here, I was interested in spreading large areas of dark paint smoothly, which I’ve almost accomplished. That often leads to very dull drawings, which I […]

Coming Back

By in sketches, watercolour, women

Recovering again, it seems, from a rebounded stomach flu. Amazing the lack of energy when that’s happening. But the energy’s back, which feels good. While actually doing other work, I dashed off a couple of things, which you can see here.

Women and Men at Work

By in men, ruttan's place, watercolour, women

Construction outside of my place this afternoon made it tough to work. So, I sat outside, breathed asphalt fumes, and painted this. Don’t know if the crew would have appreciated it. This was the lone girl, working with a bunch of guys. I’ve further documented the building going on in front of my house on […]

Monochrome, but Bi-Planes and Tri-Planes.

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

… but first, a Moonbeam McSwine type. Most of the sketchbook drawings come about as a “hey, a dog would look nice over there,” or a lot of things on a page. Rarely any planning. Actually, I have to work on that. Setting myself a subject ahead of time, and accomplishing it.

Just a nautically-themed daub because of those ships I saw on the weekend. I may try a better painting of a sailing ship, but they’re hella complicated. And I hate it when the larboard mainsheet is connected to the mizzen, and all that. Too late for “talk like a Pirate day,” however, which is just […]

Another elaborate, but short watercolour comic. That’s all there is to this one! Gonna do these on heavier paper from now on, instead of in my book. And yes, I like the sometimes ragged edges on the panels, and all the imperfections.

Old Port

By in montreal, sketches, watercolour

Off to the Old Port yesterday. I’ve been pretty tired lately. Don’t know why that is. Anyhow, I drew some of the sailing ships which had docked there, (on my other blog, don’t ask why — I haven’t quite figured it out), and painted this building. I’ve painted it before, when it wasn’t quite as […]

Just a funny, kind of Matrix-y couple.

Road to Perdition

By in men, sketches

That’s the movie I’m watching, rather than getting to bed. I feel like a beer right now, but everything is closed or too far away.

Strange Beach, and Comic Con ‘Crastination

By in men, sketches, women

I’m still messing around trying to learn my video editing program, so I can upload a spiff little production of all the neat chats with artists I did at the Montreal Comic Con this past weekend. It’s pretty complicated, and I’m pretty busy at the mo. In the meantime, glom with your eyes this picture […]

Montreal Comic Con 2010

By in montreal

Please check my set of still photos from this year’s Montreal Comic Con. I’m still messing around with the videos, and will upload those in a later post. This maybe serves as a taster, and I know people will want to see the photos.

Saturday in the Park

By in men, montreal, ruttan's place, watercolour, women

I’m behind in my blogging, as usual. September seems to be a whirl of events and parties. While my health is back (for now!) it’s hard to get out to everything. I promised to record a few of these, so here we are. These are shots and sketches from the weekend party in Mederic Martin […]

Frosh Week

By in men, watercolour, women

The other day I was walking downtown near the French University on Saint Denis street. They’re having Frosh week, which means crowds of kids wearing sacks and funny hats, made to do humiliating things. One of those was to beg for change near where actual poor people do, on Ste. Catherine street. I’m afraid I […]
