May Comic Jamming, Arthur, etc.

By in men, sketches, watercolour

The last Thursday in May means the Monthly Montreal Comic Jam. I actually worked on some pages of comics, but it’s more of a get-together for local artists, to share and show off, and also collaborate on things. I got my bud Rick Gagnon to colour this picture of mine above, which turned out swell. […]

Belated Burlesque

By in sketches, women

I’m sorry, I’ve been a bit out of it, because of the unseasonal heat, and health complaints. Still sitting around, drawing, and twittering. Above is what I was drawing last Wednesday, at the monthly performance of Blue Light Burlesque. Mostly little bits and pieces. People moving, removing clothing (!) in the dark. Working on some […]

Colourful Day

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Went to the park at East Mont Royal Ave today. Mont Royal used to be a working class street, with taverns and fast food restaurants. Now, with the emergence of the Plateau as a trendy neighbourhood, it’s a place where people go to be seen. So, I thought I’d draw some of them. The dog […]

Oliphaunts, Etc.

By in sketches, watercolour

Today, a picture of Queen Suriyothai (a Thai cultural heroine) atop her elephant, or “Oliphaunt” in this case. And below, a taste of my mood lately, sometimes. Hoping to cheer up!

Animules, etc.

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour, women

I just like the colour. Lotsa work to do, and I’ve been slacking off. The usual worries, but I hope things will be all right.

Cafe Day

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Hung out at the café yesterday, and drew a lot of stuff. Here’s some of it. That guy wasn’t grey before. He was sort of dark, but then I added blue. The magic of accident! Girl, with bixi bike in background.

I’ve been drawing more than this, but just putting this up for now, to keep the chi circulating.

Finding My Way

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Got some work to do. Just finding my way with a lot of drawings. I’m putting most of them up. My commissions don’t call for watercolour, but if I can do things right in that, I can also handle the black and white. i like my new watercolour book, and also how things look in […]

Painting up a Storm

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Lotsa little watercolours lately. These are fun to do, and look more sophisticated than my usual production. It’s true that the more you do, the better you get at it. If I stop, it often takes a few lousy pictures before I get up to speed again. A big part of it seems to be […]

Splashes of Colour

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

There’s a lot more colour outside, now that winter’s finished with. So, it’s lucky that this new little black sketchbook of mine takes colour in it. These are more or less things I drew on the balcony the other day.

Medieval Portraits

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Just a couple of pics I sketched from a book of French painting from the 14-15th centuries. These are fun. I’ll do more. And maybe some modern ones.

May Day

By in dogs, sketches, women

Happy 1st of May, if that means something to you. These are just a couple more drawings, in one case gingerly approaching work that I’m doing.
