…in colour, this time.
Archive for January, 2011
This is my black and white book, which doesn’t take colour all that well (except when it’s all I’ve got!). Still, it’s fun to draw in black and white with the brush pen, and various roller pens. Not as elite as the dip pen, however. But still pleasant to scratch back and forth, making those […]
Something a little different. JM Ken Niimura shows off his sketchbook (actually, divided among 5 artists) at last night’s Montreal Comic Jam. Rick Gagnon is there in the background. You can follow along, and discover these artists’ websites. Thanks to JM they are (in order): Enrique Lorenzo: http://enriquelorenzo.blogspot.com/ JM Ken Niimura:http://niimurablog.blogspot.com/ Alfonso Salazar: http://alfonso-salazar.blogspot.com/ Christian […]
I’ve not been drawing tons. Trying to settle back into things, and relax. Cartoonists on Twitter are helping me do this, mainly through examples of their work. The figure in blue is mainly copied from a Love and Rockets comic panel. I think i like getting more into cartoony oddness, but enjoy trying to make […]
I think there are more, but I can’t find them. Should have pretended I was reprinting them from some long-dead Men’s or Family magazine. And this popped up on Twitter just as I was writing this post, and I can’t resist: http://mikelynchcartoons.blogspot.com/2011/01/saturday-evening-post-scrapbook-part-24.html
I wrote and drew a few gag cartoons, which my pal Rick Gagnon inked in his usual impeccable way. We submitted them to Reader’s Digest, who wasn’t bowled over, so they found a home in Rick’s zine, and now are here on the web. Jeff Leblanc did the masthead. Hey, I was aiming for humour […]
Still really haven’t gotten the blog back on its wheels since the holiday break. I have a host of excuses! Mainly busy with work and stuff. But there are some interesting things coming up! That’s if I’m not distracted by twitter, or doing meaningless graphics in illustrator. Happy to be making at least a little […]
Today’s strip is called “Coffee.” I think it was inspired by this machine at the Ontario Science Centre, that said the word “coffee,” and you could alter the inflection by turning a knob so that it sounded like a question. I wonder if that machine is still around? This was originally published in my friend […]
Here’s another of those old strips of mine. Worked on at the comic jam, mainly by Rick Gagnon, over my scribbly pencils. Hence the odd faces here and there. Still funny, though. I’m running out of these, but have a few more tricks up my sleeve before I’ll have to start drawing stuff again.
