Colour Comic Time

By in horses, watercolour

For some reason, these take about as long as the black and white ones! Going to try and do more. They’ll probably make more sense, get more relaxed as I go along. I’ve got a pile of stories. Just haven’t drawn (or painted) them, yet. This one come out of my head as I was […]

Fun With a Pencil

By in men, sketches, women

Pencil drawings, coloured and otherwise. The title of the post is the title of one of those great old Andy Loomis art technique books. But one I don’t have.

August Montreal Comic Jam

By in horses, sketches, watercolour

After missing a couple of nights, I finally made it to the monthly Montreal Comic Jam. Took pictures, but now I’m lazy, and put them into a slide show. You can actually click on photos as they pass by above to read info about who’s in them, etc. Enthused about watercolour, I brought my set […]

Keep Kicking that Can Around

By in sketches, watercolour

Was pretty down today, but doing this cheered me up. Just left blank bubbles and squares, then filled them in with whatever. Mainly according to songs I was listening to on the shuffle.

By in cats, men, sketches

This is something what I’m going to look like when I’m ready to cash in my life insurance. I understand that when one turns 80, the amount you can take out goes down, for some reason I can’t fathom. That’s probably a different cat than present, unless Mr. Boggedy has some strange abilities I’m not […]

Not the Usual Face Painter

By in Uncategorized

You don’t want me for your childrens’ face painter. There’s a community thing happening in a week or two at Parc Mederic Martin, a neglected little park a block or two east of here. It’s based on a sort of Parisian model of the park with the long centre walk, but left to seed. The […]

Busy or Bizzay?

By in men, sketches, watercolour

Just another watercolour thing to keep the blog rolling along. At least I did some useful work today! Gotta feed the cats.

Always Brush Your Koi

By in men

This is the first drawing I’ve done with my Koi water brush. Explanation here, on my Tumblr blog. The tumblr is more for ramblings of mine that can’t be contained on twitter. This will be my more formal blog, and sketch blog. Trying to separate the two of them. I am large! I can contain […]

Retro Lines

By in dogs, sketches, women

I’m way more comfortable drawing in a spidery scratchy way than I am making the slick lines that seem popular in animation and graphic art these days. Still, fun to try. Doing some construction is also helping me with the heads and bodies. Part of the trouble with being self-taught as an artist, is that […]

Worst Case Scenario

By in men, watercolour

Discussing hats, and drawing them, on twitter. Dylan Meconis offered a tutorial on her blog on how to draw tricorn hats. I don’t have big problems with those. But I do with fedoras and cowboy hats. So another artist, Brian Moore, offered me this: Worst-case scenario: ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX, THE SINGING COWBOY GANGSTER. So, of course […]

Hey Wow

By in sketches, watercolour, women

Weird painting, as usual. But I learned a lot from doing this!
