New Year’s Eve

By in men, watercolour

Haven’t blogged much recently. Mainly because I’ve been busy, and drawing little bits and pieces of things as I learn my new tool, the Wacom Intuous Tablet. But there are some exciting projects happening in the new year, and I hope lots of interesting stuff to draw and put up. This is a watercolour man […]

New Toy

By in men, women

Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been playing with a new toy. A Wacom Intuous 4 stylus. Still working with it. I’ve used a Bamboo Pen stylus for a while, but though i liked it, the lines were jiggly and I couldn’t really draw with it the way I could with pencils, pens and brushes. […]

By in sketches, watercolour

This feels slightly less demented than most of my offerings, but I’m probably kidding myself. All the same, I feel more control of my medium and the effects it creates, and also my drawing. Hooray!

Still painting random faces, from DVDs, and my squirming imagination. Kind of enjoying it at the moment. Some bonus kitty-cats as well.

Troll Girl

By in sketches

I suppose this counts as fan art for this comic here, but I’ve never read the comic. Not that I’m not into French comics. This was another experiment in comic colouring, and I did everything wrong, technically speaking. Still, I’m getting the hang of it. Live and learn!

Passive-Aggressive Birds

By in sketches

I wanted to put this cartoon up before some internet low-life steals the idea! That’s because I mentioned it on Twitter. @AJKandy thought that the birds would file nuisance complaints with the city until the pigs move away, while @MrBillyBones said that “You launch them at things, but they just bounce off …and then pout.”

Peggy Burns from Drawn and Quarterly

By in montreal, sketches

Went to a chat today by Peggy Burns, who is the marketing person for Drawn and Quarterly Books in Montreal, speaking at the Atwater Library. She talked about the history of Drawn and Quarterly, some of their artists such as Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, and Lynda Barry. Also got into a little of […]

Female Faces…

By in sketches, women

Charlize Theron, from the cover of a movie mag. I’ve been neglecting my blogging. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been drawing. Working on female faces here, trying to catch what’s special in a face that makes it a particular person. Easier to draw a generic face. But when you can’t get out to sketch real […]

Colour Cats and Such

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I’m doing comic colouring in Photoshop. Shouldn’t be so difficult, but I’m thinking of it a lot. Then a little watercolour.
