More faces and sketchook pages

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Been painting a lot of stuff, but want to focus on the comics. That doesn’t mean these will stop, anytime soon. I’m just putting it up!

Cheerful Misanthropy Comic

By in paintings, watercolour

I like children, but have seen a lot of complainers, and put-upon moms. This one wasn’t written as much as it sort of fell out of my subconscious. I’m uncomfortable about it (hence the title), but it’s just paint and paper. Painting comics like this seems to take about as long as drawing them in […]

Painting Away the Blues

By in cats, men, paintings, ruttan's place, sketches, women

Painting and drawing stuff makes me feel better. here’s are some things from yesterday and this morning! Above is Bamako the Black Cat, whom I’m taking care of for the moment, and an Evil Skwirl. Below, some sketches from my balcony I drew with a ballpoint pen I just bought. Can’t resist trying out a […]

Heroes and Ordinary People

By in dogs, men, watercolour, women

In the brush drawing, I’m imagining Wonder Woman’s frumpier, older cousin. I always think that these glamourous types have relatives who are less impressive, and jealous of them. This is Cyrano de Bergerac. In one of his works, he built himself a pair of wings, and flew to the moon. Gotta love that Cyrano! Then, […]

I’m still messing with yellow, which gives a quality of “light” to my sketches. Of course, I also have to manage the lights and darks to make this work. This is some mad spaceship. I used to draw spaceships all the time as a kid, influenced by Star Trek and 2001 A Space Odyssey. I […]

A New, New Book

By in men, sketches, watercolour

Picked up a new sketchbook on the way with a friend to the new “Harry Potter” movie on the weekend. It was on the sale table at the art materials store, so I thought it was on sale, but turned out to be not. We were in a hurry to get to the show, so […]

Cats and Dogs

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour

I’ve scanned a lot of pictures I’ve been painting the last while, and am going to put them up on the blog step by step, maybe. That’s so I can post stuff every day! Or, I might put them up all at once. Who knows?

Today’s Page

By in cats, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

It’s awkward scanning things out of a ring-bound sketchbook. Pages are all “cockled” when it’s watercolour, and you can never get it to line up on the scanner. I also had to scan this page twice and “stitch” together, which also was a pain. Not to mention fixing that tree, which had a lot of […]

Dog and Woman, and Sad Daisy Mae

Excuse the long title. I’m using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to bring up my blog visit stats! (As if that will help).

Cell Phone Woman

By in sketches, watercolour, women

Everyone I see downtown these days is texting, or talking on a phone. Don’t know what to make of this, but it’s not me. Though I am addicted to twitter, and my little sub-notebook computer.

New Pug Dog

By in dogs, paintings, sketches, watercolour

Reading, and inspired by the comic Beasts of Burden, by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson. Working on some animal stories, I promise! Okay, you’ve heard that before. Drawing pug dogs is fun. Not sure about the dogs themselves. One once got loose in this apartment when I left the door open. Discombobulated the cats. I […]

F1 Confusion

By in horses, montreal, paintings, sketches, watercolour

Yesterday, I went to check out the Formula 1 Festivities downtown in Montreal. Snapped a few photos, as above. Kind of tiring, the whole thing, so I took a pit stop in Dorchester Square, ate French Fries, and sketched the equestrian monument to the wildly popular Boer War.

Yellow and Sepia

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I am so wiped out today. Combination of humid heat and allergies. But I’ve been painting lots of things. Not all of it really good, because for some reason I’m painting over old pencil drawings in the sketchbook. But I like how the darks and lights are going. Will do some pretty ones, I promise.
