I like ones with background detail better. But a pal of mine said I like to clutter things up. That’s all right.

Watching Gran Torino with an old Clint Eastwood put me in mind of my teen car. Much less impressive. Built a scale model of it, which I’ve kept on a shelf, and you can see on my tumblr space here. It was a 1974 Mercury Bobcat, not a Pinto. That’s about all I want to […]
Couple of uncomfortable paintings. The one above is a figure from a dream I had, based, I think, on a rock video featuring a mummy wrapped in duct tape. Below, it’s this guy I found annoying at a bar. Don’t know how much annoyingness comes through in the picture. Usually, it’s softened a lot, but […]
Got this printed up and sent out, so I feel like I can “share” it now. Noting that other illustrators are doing more than one design. But aside from maybe painting a quick neighbourhood snowscape that’s it for me. Took me a while, because the challenge I set for myself was to learn more about […]

Wouldn’t mind being an irresponsible fashion photographer in Swinging London. Always liked drawing cowboys and horses. Suppose that’s my Alberta background coming out.
…when what you’re doing is putting up more sketches. But the post that gets the most visits is one called “Simple Cats,” so maybe I should try to title them in a descriptive way. Sounds boring, but stuff here is pretty low key. Like I’ve said, I’m really doing this a lot for myself, to […]
I’ve been messing around with vectors and other things, managing not to post. But here’s a drawing drawed with a good old fashioned dip pen (with brush pen outlines): And a brush pen horse. Trying to catch that equine grace:
