More Faces

By in horses, sketches, watercolour

Feeling like I’m getting better at it. Actually, I just enjoy doing these. Meanwhile, I’m watching a cheap supermarket DVD of the silent film “Nosferatu.” The picture quality is terrible, but every frame is a perfect image.

Stuart Robertson

By in montreal

Having an awful time lately with people I like and have worked with passing away. First Sonja Skarstedt, then Renee Wathelet. Now it’s Stuart Robertson. Soft-spoken gardening expert on CBC radio, and columnist in the Gazette, he was also Chair of our Electronic Rights Defense Committee for a time. He sometimes had a bit of […]

Car-Free Day and Animules

By in cats, dogs, montreal, sketches

Today I’m going to be cartooning at the Eaton Centre in Downtown Montreal, part of the events surrounding Car Free Day in that part of the city. Please visit, if you can make it! Meantime, I bought a new little sketchbook (only 4″x6″), and drew a bunch of things. Mainly animal-related.

Montreal Comicon 2009

By in montreal

Yesterday, I visited the Montreal Comicon, at Place Bonaventure. Very stimulating. A lot of my comic-creating friends in both the franco and anglo communities were there, plus plenty of talented people I had never heard of. I took pictures, and the flickr photo set has names of most of the people, and links to their […]

By in Uncategorized

Completely shocked this morning to hear about the brutal death of Renée Wathelet, a person with a great soul whose beautiful photographs graced her blog En direct des isles. The nasty story is here.

Sunday’s Drawings: With a Brush and All

By in sketches

The first one worked out pretty well. Kind of Frank Miller-ish, except it’s a non Frank Miller subject. Will work on making blog posts more exciting. But at least they’re quick to do! New Wave kid. The above and top are more or less inspired by the film Control, about the lead singer of Joy […]

Whatever’s In My Head

By in sketches

Feel like I should be more directed in these things. Like just not drawing only whatever pops into my head. Mind you, it’s a kind of therapy, and relaxation. I’m not doing it for a goal. Above is a scene from an air race in the golden age of such things, the 1930s. Below, a […]
