Bein’ an Extra

By in montreal, sketches

One of the things I do, since writing gives me such a loose schedule, and I’ve been involved in movies and such, is play an extra, or “background performer” in local shoots. It’s kind of fun, if you don’t take it seriously, and you get a bit of money, and sometimes hobnob with stars, or […]

My Dad

By in Uncategorized

By in cats, men, sketches

This is sort of an angry Peter Mansbridge. But I was really just practicing my shading and crosshatching chops on an old pencil sketch. Below, two old outer space farts, from the Dark Side of the Force: Last, my portrait of Cat Boy. At age 13, he’s sort of an old fart of the cat […]

Serveurs Sexy?

By in montreal

Remember my note about the Laundromat on my street that closed? Well, the windows got whited out, and renovations have been going on. As I was going by on my bike a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a sign on the front door underneath the usual work permit: It reads: “Opening Soon: Restaurant – […]
