Loose Ends

Monday, April 17th, 2017

I’ve been slowly picking away at the loose ends of Wahoo Morris Book 2 during my brief moments of downtime the last few weeks.

As of today I’ve got 5 pages left to ink and a few odds and ends of lettering to finish off.

The end is near!

A New Project

Monday, September 12th, 2016

I’m starting a new comic project for the first time in 5 years. I’ve got a script, a publisher waiting, and 24 pages of “paper” ruled and waiting.

A blank sheet of paper is both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.

Life Drawing @ The Rooster

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

The last time I attended Life Drawing was a multi-week session at the Ottawa School Of Art. I had just started working for WaRP Graphics inking ElfQuest: The Hidden Years (I’ll let somebody else do the math!) and I had to drop out of the session because of time crunch and deadlines.

I’ve been wanting to do it ever since, but could never commit to a long multi-week session.

I finally found a couple of monthly drop in sessions and finally made it to one last night. It was a clothed model session at The Atomic Rooster.  I haven’t used a pencil (or any non-digital art tool) outside of scribbling stick figure layouts in the margins of a script in about 8 years. I felt like a monkey with a burnt stick.

Frustrations aside, I’m looking forward to the next one.
