L’Écho d’un fleuve

By in men, montreal, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolour, women

One of the pleasures of living in this little neighbourhood here (whether it’s called “Centre Sud” or “Les Faubourgs” –I’m really not so sure) is the now annual urban art event L`Écho d’un Fleuve, taking place on rue Dufresne, just below my front door here on Rouen. Who’d have thought there were so many artists […]

The Power of Free Beer

By in montreal

Didn’t see many of my usual English language blogging buddies at the special Yulblog event last Tuesday. That might have been because it was a day earlier than the usual monthly get-together, and also in a special venue, L’Assoimoir on Notre Dame, just West of the Cathedral in Old Montreal. Might also have been because […]

This Always Happens…

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

I’ve been in a bit of a mood lately, and not posting much. But still drawing things. Some of which are clever, or all right. I’ve actually got 3 comic strips on the go, which I’d like to finish. Those, of course, are all brilliant. We’ll see. In the meantime, because Easter weekend was warm, […]

Pugs, and Skeleton Dude

By in dogs, montreal, sketches, women

I haven’t been posting very much! Sorry. Haven’t been in the mood. I like this drawing of a woman and her pug, however. Something extra. I’ve been seeing these little cutouts of this skeleton dude and his toaster around the neighbourhood. Snapping them with my camera, before they get taken down, because these things don’t […]

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 […]

Wiggly or Stiff

By in cats, ruttan's place, sketches

Those seem to be my two modes of drawing (get your mind out of the gutter!) Further hindering me during these cold December days is Nora the cat, who thinks she owns my chair. If I’m sitting here, she’s sometimes below, looking up anxiously. I get up, and she takes over. i’m seriously thinking of […]

Art in the Wild

By in cats, montreal

I used to write for art journals, and about art, in newspapers. I’ve been out of that world for a while. It seems a little different when you’ve been on the outside, though I still feel at home in a gallery or museum. Not everyone feels that way! Maybe I’m getting a little back into […]

Montreal Comic Con December 2009

By in montreal

Didn’t I just do one of these in September? And then there was Expozine last month. So, many of these artist seemed like old friends. It was fun brandishing around my little Lumix DMC-FS3 and talking to artists. Sound was a little off (and some interviews are in French), but I think things are audible […]

By in cats, ruttan's place

I installed Flash on this computer. I actually want to turn this into an image of her floating, and hope I can add the appropriate electric hum. Why? So I can learn some Flash! Thus far, all I can do is make a triangle jump abruptly from one side of the screen to the other. […]

The cats are complete cute. They’re getting ready for winter:

Comic Jamming, and State of Emergency

By in montreal

Off to the Monthly Montreal Comic Jam the other night. But first there was a big event happening across the street. I took some video with my little camera: Got one of the volunteers in the information booth to explain what was going on. Nice siren in the background, which fits with the name of […]

Arty Neighours

By in montreal

There were a number of art-related events happening right under my nose here in Centre Sud Montreal. So I snapped a few pictures, dutiful type that I am. It’s a chance to see what one’s arty neighbours are doing. Just a few steps from my front door, I happened on the sign above. (As usual, […]

Is Someone on My Block a John Lennon Fan?

(Also just realised this is in English. But that’s not unusual.) Below: sketch of a skater in the “Kiss and Cry:”

Expozine Sunday – More Strangeness

By in montreal

This pic seems to encapsulate for me the oddness and fun of Expozine. I get totally overstimulated by the art and whackiness of it all. Anyhow, this year, exhausted by taking pictures of all the people and their stuff in previous years, I tried something different. My little camera took good videos, so I tried […]
