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 […]

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 […]

More Gag Panels

By in Uncategorized

I think there are more, but I can’t find them. Should have pretended I was reprinting them from some long-dead Men’s or Family magazine. And this popped up on Twitter just as I was writing this post, and I can’t resist:

Gag Cartoons 1

By in Uncategorized

I wrote and drew a few gag cartoons, which my pal Rick Gagnon inked in his usual impeccable way. We submitted them to Reader’s Digest, who wasn’t bowled over, so they found a home in Rick’s zine, and now are here on the web. Jeff Leblanc did the masthead. Hey, I was aiming for humour […]

Cats and the Creative Process

By in cats

Here’s another of those old strips of mine. Worked on at the comic jam, mainly by Rick Gagnon, over my scribbly pencils. Hence the odd faces here and there. Still funny, though. I’m running out of these, but have a few more tricks up my sleeve before I’ll have to start drawing stuff again.

Social Darwinism

By in Uncategorized

Another old comic from 1994 or so. More completely inked by Gagnon, but this was before he had completely figured out my style, I think. I’ll do more new comics, I promise!

That Whistling Guy

By in Uncategorized

I’ve been taking it slow over the holidays. Not doing too much. A lot of pencil drawings on scrap paper I’m not going to bother to scan. Getting back into working on things, though. One part of that effort was to go into my archives, and rescue some old strips which might be good, but […]

Les 48 heures de la bande dessinée de Montréal

By in montreal

I was at the above-named event today. Plenty of cartoonists, plenty of cartoons. A surprise for me, because I didn’t know many of them. The Montreal comics scene is indeed diverse. The first day, Saturday, is devoted to creating strips: cartoonists are paired up to produce these. Sunday is for displaying the finished work to […]

October Montreal Comic Jam

By in men, montreal, sketches, watercolour

Something special for this month’s comic jam. Pierre Landry from CBC Radio came and interviewed us about the comic jam. Maybe this is a result of the press attention we got in the Gazette a couple of weeks ago. Here are some snaps from the Jam, including the interview: And you can listen to the […]

Ruttan Gets His 15 Mins

By in Uncategorized

Hey, my cartoons and those of some of my pals got mentioned in the Montreal Gazette today. [link] They even published a link to my site. That means I’ll have to update the Skinny Nameless Punk as well as put up some more stuff.

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 […]

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. […]

Introducing the Punk

By in sketches

The Skinny Nameless Punk is a great cartoon character I created with collaborator Rick Gagnon, and now he has his own site. The strips were printed in Mensuhell, the Quebec monthly fanzine that shut down last year. One of the few features in that mag that ran in English, by the way. A few […]

January Montreal Comic Jam!

By in montreal, sketches, women

…Was better attended than you would think, considering the icy weather. Still, stacks of comics have been drawn, but people (yours truly included) haven’t gotten it together to scan them, or try to print them in a zine. I bet that that zine would have some sort of currency, since we’re a fixture at L’Escalier […]
