Comic Weekend

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

I am going to be at Canzine West on Sunday, come on by and say hi Sunday, November 13
Ukrainian Hall
805 Pender St. E
1-7pm

Also, I am going to this live art jam thing with Jim Mahfood and Dave Crosland tonight, The Kozmik Zoo
@ The Hennessey Dining Lounge
53 West Broadway

And someone actually sent a new Page 100! From the Road. Strangely I had just been considering doing one of those for the book I’m reading right now, though it would be a tricky one.

Halloweekend

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Well we are closing in on the end of the YEAR 40 Project, just a few more pages of October to do, and then the 22 day countdown in November. You can read the October comics over here for now.

I have also gotten a bunch of new Page One Hundred Project submissions this week, one from Italy and a bunch more from our Page One Hundred friends in Croatia! Some cool looking stuff there.

And it is Halloweekend, which means I am busting out the Mega-j!

Action Pose

Some More Page 100s

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Had a good time at the comic jam and the Comix and Stories. Between those and getting some comics done, it was a busy weekend. Ages ago, some more people sent me Page 100s. We have another Bukowski, Chris Woods drawing Pulp. And for a change of scene, Darko Macan takes on some portion of the Bible in Croatian! And then Darko got some of his folks to join in, so we have Jurica Staresincic doing Jean Baudrillard’s Fragments, David Vrhovski (age 14) doing a joke from a 3000 Jokes book, and Sonja Gasperov doing Akif Pirincci’s Felidae.

Late breaking news: Here is another Michael Darmanin does William Shatner’s 2009 autobiography Up Till Now.

Links and rants

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

A brief rant: I do not skateboard, but it seems like a waste of money to put big signs on the main drag/hill here in North Vancouver saying “SKATEBOARDING ON LONSDALE IS ILLEGAL AND YOU WILL BE FINED” like that is really that big a problem? I have seen two fender benders in the past month, no skateboarders involved. The bad drivers of North Van seem like a bigger issue to me, but then I am biased against cars.

Anyhow, here is another Page 100:
Bruce Otter takes on Illuminatus!, by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson.

And here is a page from my July comics for my YEAR 40 Project. Last month I decided to try to draw a comic’s worth of pages in one weekend. It mostly worked. You can follow along as they appear here.

Cormac Page 100s

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

A couple more Page 100s, both of them from Cormac McCarthy interestingly enough.
Spiralstairs does the Road
Dan Berry takes on No Country for Old Men
Also, my plant comics from June are continuing weekdays over here.

Happy Canada Day

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Happy Canada Day! It is almost 1pm and I haven’t gotten dressed yet. I am listening to music from South Africa as I scan some comics. I am feeling happy thinking about (and twittering about) all the great Canadian comic people I know and enjoy.

Two new Page One Hundreds:
Colleen Frakes does The Prisoner of Zenda
Joe Decie does Charles Bukowski’s Women

Don’t forget to keep following my 30 Days of Plant Comics, updating weekdays. I just drew the last one today. What to do in July now?!

A Bit of Tidying Up

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

I decided on the weekend that I should really have my Year 40 Project displayed properly, so I am in the midst of moving things over to Webcomicsnation. I am putting links over here as I go. Currently I’m posting a page a day of the stuff I drew at the start of May, in Toronto.

Also, there was another lovely page submitted for the Page 100 Project: Sabriel by Arkonbey

I have watched a whole pile of movies recently, but two stood out as really exceptional. Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. Boy both of them just beautiful and strange and wonderful. I need to remember to watch awesome movies.

Pages and Pages

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Some more Page 100′s:
Seph Hunter does Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle
kimiko does James Oliver Rigney, Jr’s The Shadow Rising

In related news, our friend Spiral Stairs pointed out One Drawing for Every Page of Moby Dick, which is quite the epic undertaking!

And an interview that spoke to me last week, with Harmony Korine, whose movies I love. On his latest, Trash Humpers:
I always wanted to be able to work as quickly as I could think, to not be precious about things. It was more about building up a body of work than anything else, you know. Making films for different reasons, just be able to act on a whim, you know what I mean? In some ways, to work like a painter. I just wanted to be able to move as quickly as I could think.

Home Again

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

I have been lazy since I got home and have not uploaded any TCAF pictures or scanned any comics. Maybe tonight!

Meanwhile other people have been drawing, drawing Page 100′s!
Mark Campos has done another page! This time it is Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
and David Marmota has drawn Island of Adventure by Enid Blyton

Gone Fishing

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I am away having a bit of a post-TCAF vacation, visiting my family in Ontario. The show was a great time with a really upbeat vibe. I chatted with so many nice customers and fellow exhibitors. And then there were parties, you know, every night. The closing one on Sunday especially warmed my heart, as I looked around the room and realized I knew quite a lot of people in some capacity or other. And I knew them from many different eras of my comics life. It reminded me why it is good for my soul to get out to the shows!

Also I have gotten two new Page 100 Project submissions!
Josh Bauman does Haruki Murakami’s Wild Sheep Chase
Dorian Lafferee does Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
