Ice Cream and Birds

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Thursday (at last) and so there is some new True Loves 3 for you to read! I was again listening to Inkstuds as I drew and coloured. This week it was Zak Sally which then led to Kim Deitch. Quite interesting and very different characters.

This weekend the Vancouver Comic Jam Art Show opens. Here is a sneak peek at my piece. I will be at the opening Saturday night too, and so should you!


And another bird comic.

Monday Update

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

It would appear I have not been doing any extra curricular drawing this week. There is a new True Loves 3. And people have been buying the True Loves app, so that is cool. Listened to some nice Inkstuds interviews as I inked and coloured yesterday, which would seem to be my regular Sunday thing now. So I listened to the recent Darryl Cunningham interview about his Psychiatric Tales book and the less recent Chester Brown interview about his Louis Riel book and more. Like much of the comic world, I am greatly looking forward to Chester’s new book Paying for It, which comes out for TCAF (which I will be at!). Here is a video for a song I had stuck in my head all day.

The True Loves App

Well the True Loves App is live! Now you can read True Loves 1 & 2 on your iphone/pad/touch. Many thanks to Andrew van Wensen for his hard work putting this ithing together!

Valhalla Rising

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

New True Loves 3 today, a little on the late side.

Here is a drawing I did on the weekend, from the movie Valhalla Rising. Which I quite enjoyed, very low fi, moody and quiet viking movie. Here is a drawing from the comic jam on the weekend, which I only captioned, really.

This is Thursday, so there is a new True Loves 3 for you to read. And since I have been busy with True Loves and my next Broken Pencil column this week, I don’t have any other new drawings to share. So here is a Flaming Lips cover I was enjoying earlier in the week.

True Lovings

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

There was a new True Loves 3 up yesterday. Did you see it?

I have been listening to Inkstuds as I well, ink, and also colour. I listened to a nice one with Brian Ralph today, and a great John Porcellino one yesterday. Good stuff!

Here is a song I came across tonight that I hadn’t heard in ages.

Birds and Sketchbooks

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

Well I finally finished this sketchbook. One day shy of a year it took me! That is longer than usual. I did my traditional self-portrait as the last drawing of the book.

Earlier in the week I was reading this interesting conversation about Elektra:Assassin. I forget how much that comic blew my mind when it came out. Especially the first issue. I read and reread that comic! I don’t agree with everything these guys say (From Hell better than anything Moore and Campbell did separately? Really?), but it is interesting to read their thoughts about this old favourite.

Another bird comic.
