Digital Burd and Flower

By in sketches

More digital things, thanks to Clip Studio Paint, and my Huion pad and stylus. Not too inspiring as a work of art, but I’m getting into pressing all the right switches and finding the commands. Someday I’ll record some things on Instagram, and you can see my wonderful process….

Lilac Paper

By in cats, heads, horses, pencil, sketches

Some drawings on this pretty paper my pal has pads of. The guy with a sword in his mouth is inspired by one of the stained glass images in the Sainte-Chapelle Church in Paris.

Anthropomorpic Rabbit and Bike.

By in ballpoint pen, color, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Watercolour and black ballpoint. I think this character is my “Rabbit” from the comic strips I used to do.

Eastern

By in color, Gouache, heads, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I really hope that the little art shop in Chinatown near Clarke Street has survived. I like independent shops more than the big chains. Found cool stuff there, such as this book, and that brush. This is actually a face I did years ago, in black gouache, and just added colour to, today.

Two things I like to draw….

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, cats, sketches

Cats are self-explanatory. But I’ve always liked airplanes, and especially the DeHavilland Mosquito. As a boy, my Dad picked up a scrap from the famous “F for Freddie,” a Mosquito that unfortunately crashed on an airfield in Southwest Calgary on VE day, 1945. (article here).

This was such a fun freelance gig. I did illustrations and writing for NEWS EXTRA, a newspaper tabloid sold at supermarkets and gas stations. It pretended to come out of Florida, but was actually published from an office in the Notre Dame de Grace neighbourhood of Montreal. Every other week or so I brought in […]

Transformations

By in sketches

Out of my files, this is a comic I did way back in 1988, when Robocop was a big deal, and the Transformers Cartoon was airing. I used this as a sample of my work, but don’t think I got it published anywhere, even in a Fanzine, which is kind of stupid. It’s still a […]

Tuscan Red

By in Portraits, sketches

A couple more sketchbook pages! Pencil used was my Prismacolour “Tuscan Red.” (I think of Star Wars more than Italy here!) Or it could be brown, come to think of it. I’ve sharpened it so much it’s now a numb in a pencil holder! Esi Edugyan has a cool lecture series at the moment on […]
