I’ve finally got myself up and running with a print-on-demand online art store. I’ll be adding more products as time allows, but I’m starting with these prints of the colourful new Three Thieves covers. Get a set for the young fantasy adventure lover in your life!
Pencils for first three panels of a new adult historical/biographical graphic novel I’m pitching. Not announcing exactly what it is yet, but it deals with music, religion, creativity, and race.
So I just posted a conversation with cartoonist and historic tall ship sailor Lucy Bellwood. It’s the first of what I hope will be many casual chats with cartoonists whose work I admire.
These aren’t really interviews, just cartoonists talking about their stuff. Hope to put one up every week or two.
These aren’t edited at all - no time for that - so there will be the occasional “um” and sometimes some language (that’s the case in this one). But I figured it might make good listening for other artists tied to their desk, itching for some shop talk.
Reblogging myself because I, um, forgot to include the link the show. Sheesh.
One week from today!
You can get this print by backing the Kickstarter campaign to reprint Johnny’s WWII-era adventures. It’s a companion to my Brok Windsor print. Back both campaigns, get both prints!
Colouring in progress on that Johnny Canuck piece.
Inking my piece for the Johnny Canuck Kickstarter.
"Finding the drama." I try to depict each story beat as many different ways as I can think of. Only one will be right for this panel, but another might be right for the NEXT panel. Or the one after that, and so on.
After months of script writing, feels good to finally have my #drawing hat back on. Starting to thumbnail page layouts for Three Thieves Book 6, The Dark Island.
No big deal, just me holding Bertrand Russell’s Nobel Prize medal (at McMaster University)
Lots of people will be posting clips from Dead Poets Society, but I prefer this monologue from Good Will Hunting, in which Robin Williams compellingly holds a close-up for a full TWO MINUTES.
Never much cared for his zany comedy, but in a dramatic role, he could stick the landing every time.
Rest in peace.

Just typed this at the end of the final Three Thieves script.
There will be revisions, and of course I still need to draw the last two books. But the story is TOLD, at least in written form. So I can stop worrying about that bus with my name on it now.
Just cut 12 pages from the first 75 pages of this script, because I am an editing badass.
