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, […]

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour

Recently painted a lot of dudes, or guys, or what have you. Faces seem to work better if I leave more white in them, but as usual, it’s all experimentation. The more I work on things, the better stuff gets. But if I go away from it, I seem to lose the touch, and have […]

Yellow Dog

By in dogs, sketches, watercolour

Painted a lot of things. Haven’t posted many yet. Maybe I’ll try something new and post only GOOD drawings. That would be a switch.

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?

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).

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 […]

Pushing Ahead

By in cats, dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

After not posting much, for a while, I’ve been doing a flurry of painting. Seems I need to go through a number of indifferent things to “ramp up” to something better. Anyhow, I’m happier with what’s going on here. Painting lots of cats for this cat strip I’m trying to finish. Wish it felt easier, […]

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 […]

Animal Gladiators

By in dogs, watercolour

This is a comic I drew in about 10 minutes at the last Comic Jam. Then it took me about 4 days to decide what colours to put in. Enjoy!

Still More Zombies…

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour

…And evil cats! Devil Dog… Here’s smiling business guy: Anyhow, I’m offering you, in internet land, to have your own portrait, facebook photo, or twitter avatar, turned into your favourite monster, for hallowe’en, or indeed any time of year. Building the page right now where this would be possible. In the meantime, visit this page […]

Wrapping Up the Sketchbook

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

One of my sketchbooks is almost full. So, I went through it, painted new pictures, and coloured old ones. That means a real grab-bag of images. Which are attractive? Which “work?” It’s interesting to figure out. The things I like the most are the ones that help tell a story. That means comic “strips,” (none […]

Monochrome, but Bi-Planes and Tri-Planes.

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

… but first, a Moonbeam McSwine type. Most of the sketchbook drawings come about as a “hey, a dog would look nice over there,” or a lot of things on a page. Rarely any planning. Actually, I have to work on that. Setting myself a subject ahead of time, and accomplishing it.

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 […]
