International Man of History

This is a birthday present for Phill, one of my very, very best friends. He's an amazing photographer and probably one of the coolest cats I know.

Life drawing from this evening, this was a good session! I had such a good time I feel like I floated my way home.







There are bigger things coming but they're under wraps for now, hence the recent lack of posts. Here is a grab bag of stuff for your eyes!

An unfinished exercise, trying to 'dress' a referenced pose. Kids have this very specific way of fidgeting and I think I caught it well in this one!

And here are some creatures from the sketchbook:


And a quick gesture sketch of my nephew playing with playdoh

Because I'm like perpetually hiding under a rock I've only just discovered this awesome picture of me and Erica Moen from at TCAF this year! If you read webcomics you probably know about Erika, she's has her fingers in many comic-related pies (err...) and is currently arting Bucko with writer Jeff Parker. Murder, bicycle riding and a robot-laptop, how can you go wrong?

Alexis and Me

AWW YEAH. She has said some very flattering things about me on her blog which let me tell you are totally all true. But seriously, she is a sweetheart and a damn good comicker so if you don't read her stuff already you need to get on it.
"What a pause does is remind us of the passage of time" - Jennifer Egan, writer of A Visit from the Goodsquad, on this Sunday's edition of Writers and Company on cbc radio.

I love this quote, because Egan is a writer I imagine in my head that she's talking about commas. The idea of a tiny comma on a page being a signifier for something as meaningful and conceptually fluid as "the passage of time" is just lovely. Also I'm reading a Visit Fom the Goonsquad.

Life drawing from this Sunday, the model was really fun, every pose came with bonus crazy facial expressions!
