Comic 2 — Sounds of Summer

By in color, comics, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

This one took considerably longer than the first one. Then again, I did actually write something, plus there are backgrounds and more figures. Inspired by all the construction noise around here every summer. There will probably be more on this theme.

Frustration Funnies

By in color, comics, sketches, watercolor

I’ve been feeling down about doing comics these days, because it usually takes a lot of time. So I did this thing, and it only took me a few hours. That makes me happy. I like the rough sketchy treatment. But I will spend more time on the story aspect, next time, obviously.

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 […]

Children and Safety

By in Uncategorized

I went a little insane figuring out how to add the tone, but hope I’ve learned something. In the meantime, enjoy the comic. I hope to do more of these “casual” comics in the future, because I’ve got a notebook full of stories, and the full-dress style takes a long time.

Hiyo! It’s the Orpah Show

By in watercolour

Not sure what to say about this, except it was a bit of work. I described this strip to a twitter friend, now I’ve forgotten her name. Will try to look back and find her.

Comic Layout

By in Uncategorized

I was going through things, backing them up, and saw this hanging around. It’s the layout to a comic I did. The comic is no masterpiece, but since this blog is about process, I thought I’d throw this up. It’s also an English translation of the strip.

Peggy Burns from Drawn and Quarterly

By in montreal, sketches

Went to a chat today by Peggy Burns, who is the marketing person for Drawn and Quarterly Books in Montreal, speaking at the Atwater Library. She talked about the history of Drawn and Quarterly, some of their artists such as Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, and Lynda Barry. Also got into a little of […]

Le Beau Pourri

By in Uncategorized

This weekend is the 10th edition of Expozine, the Montreal zine and independent comics fair. It’s a big weekend for me, as it seems that most of the people I know in my scene are there. I’ve done little roving reporter visits with my camera, interviewing people in the past. With all of these comics […]

Maurice Sendak and Kate Beaton Fail

By in Uncategorized

By “fail,” I don’t mean those two artists, who are great. Just my efforts to see them or their work today. It took an effort, but I caught up with the Maurice Sendak “Exhibition” at the Jewish Public library. CBC radio on the weekend had told me about it. Unfortunately, the exhibition was 8 double-sided […]

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 […]

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 […]

March 2011 Montreal Comic Jam

By in Uncategorized

I was a little out of sorts at this month’s comic jam. Didn’t have a story to tell in comics, so just drew in my book as below. Rick Gagnon, my old collaborator, finished the last panel. The creature at middle right was a plastic animal the service left to mark where an order of […]
