Depressing Comics

By in sketches

I was going through old stuff yesterday, looking for something I didn’t find (thought it was in the paper files, but I think rather it’s on the computer). Still, it helps to get to know your files. I still have trouble finding things I’m working on when it goes inside a drawer. Perhaps my drawers […]

Out of My Head….

By in horses, men, sketches, women

That’s where these drawings are from. When winter sets in it’s less practicable to draw things out on the street. So I sit around looking at books, watching DVDs, also drawing anything that tickles my fancy. Hate drawing directly from photographs, but those give you different ideas, and also keeps one closer to reality. So […]

A Kelpie, a Vampire; other things.

By in horses, men, sketches, women

I drew these in black and white, because I’m practicing computer colouring. Seems like a lot of work!

Comic Colour and Nasty Horsemen

By in horses, men, sketches

I’ve finally learned a comic colouring technique that’s relatively fast, and that I’m happy with. Check this series of youtube videos from the Overground Comic Company, if you want to find out more. Meanwhile, I’ve been drawing a stack of things. Here are a couple of angry guys on horses a la Frank Frazetta for […]

Kid Pushing Traffic Marker

By in watercolour

This kid was pushing down traffic markers the other day. So I drew him. If you see this kid around your neighbourhood, tell him to leave the traffic markers alone.

New Comic – “The Golden Calf”

By in Uncategorized

I don’t really know where this comic came from, because it grew out of the first panel, and I took it from there without knowing about characters, or a joke, only that I had to do a six panel story. Guess I was influenced by reading about R. Crumb’s “The Book of Genesis,” because I’m […]

The Little Book

By in men, sketches

While i haven’t posted here for a few days (been busy here on my tumblr doing exciting gardening videos), I’ve still been drawing, so there’s a backlog of things to put up. Today it’s black and white drawings from my small sketchbook. I’ve labelled it “VL” –not that that means anything, but it’s something I […]

Crumby Mood

By in sketches, women

I’m grouchy today, so this R. Crumb-influenced drawing of a young woman is appropriate.

New theme, same old drawings.

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Finally chose a new theme I like for the blog. It wasn’t easy! It will take me a while to get used to this one, but at least all the little details seem to work. On the old one, that wasn’t the case. I still might change the font for the headings, if my meagre […]

By in dogs, men, montreal, watercolour, women

The drawings look more realistic when copied from photographs. My problem is, it’s boring to draw from photographs. I’m painting shapes rather than trying to think around an object. Oh, I just remembered. Drew some sketches on the metro the other day. These to me are the best faces. I don’t know they have a […]

The Case of the Exploding Electric Toothbrush

By in ruttan's place, sketches, watercolour

I’ve been using an electric toothbrush for a couple of months. A little nervous about it at first, because the sound of it in my mouth was like the dental tools which still make me shivery. But it seemed to do a great job polishing the teeth, making them white and shiny. That was until […]

Light Box Mark II

By in cats, ruttan's place, sketches

As related in an earlier post on my tumblr blog, this year I built a light box, to trace drawings for watercolours. It was made out of a cardboard box my scanner came in, a couple of dollar store LED light bars, and a square of frosted glass I’d found in an alley. It was […]

Sunday Things

By in cats, sketches, women

I’m not relating to Sundays much. Thought I’d get some time off, but I’ve got to prepare for a meeting and some work. Still, I found time to sketch these things. Small cat, and some dame. I don’t call them watercolours because they involve the brush pen, and aren’t pure. I like modelling things in […]

Nonce Sketch

By in men, sketches, women

Drew this in bed last night, after a hard day/busy night. Going to relax today. I’m still in this clipped mode of writing after doing too much twitter. Obviously I have to get out more. Feel as if I’m sending out telegrams. ….stop …. Anyhow, I think I rocked the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on […]
