Hey so i’m excited to announce i’m teaching a drawing class this fall, 10 classes at Syn Studio in Montreal, emphasising the physicality of drawing from technique to capturing motion and energy in your art.
Some unconventional aspects will be moving live models, field trips to events, and even a free 1hr T’ai chi class [included in base cost] to help you get into thinking about how your body and joints work both for tool use and relating to bodies in motion. Followed by an hour of drawing the T’ai chi instructor!
I’m hoping it proves to be a fun and engaging class! I’m happy to hear we already have a few students signed up, there’s still spots for open so consider joining us for it!
First class is Saturday the 5th of October 4:30 to 7:30pm.
Class dates are all at the same time.
Oct 5, 12, 19, 26
Sept 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
Dec 7th, final class.
Year end party & exhibit TBA
Early Registration price is $410.
Regular registration rate is $470.
*Early Registration Deadline: August 7th at 11:59 P.M.
I decided to upgrade
my portfolio plugin
and update the site
There were a few kinks but it’s all good now. It’s sweet.
Tablet users should look for and check out the full-screen option! It’s in the menu.
Used it to curate smaller illustration and design sets,
and added some old monsters I drew for a game.
Also created a proper abbreviated comic art samples page, for clients who don’t want
to wade through the full individual book sets.
So let me point out a few of the other new, old pages of mine I posted.
Along with the unpublished Ghost Rider 2099 stories, “Horrorshow” & “Daddy Dearest“,
there’s an unpublished Ravage 2099 story up, sorry lost the script and the name.
A 10 page Spiderman 2099 story
called “Behind the Eight Ball“, published in Unlimited 2099.
A short Morbius The Living Vampire story
called “Drainage System”
that i’ve had on Flickr
for a while.
And last I’ve put up a set of three of the pages
I did for my first tryout for a job at one of the big two,
sample pages on Sandman for Karen Burger.
Hey all, just a update for the site here about what’s up for the new year.
I’ve got a lot on my plate, trying to prioritize things and be more organised than the last couple months. :P
Something to check out, on Carte Blanche we’ve posted a spoken work clip from the launch of issue 14.
We’ll be presenting regular audio content from now on, keep your eyes out for the next This Really Happened.
For Dream Life i just completed the second act!
Wrestling with the layouts now of act 3. And some work on Vlad as well. Going to try to get out and walk every day, then sit and treat myself to something hot and sketch page layouts. Plan for the week . [23-27/01/12]
Been mulling over plans with Bryan and folks about what to do for Sequential’s 10th anniversary, problem for me is I’ll have less time than usual this year to give over to producing the magazine. Need to find a designer[s] and funding solutions if Sequential Pulp is going to happen or be a part of the festivities. Anyone interested in participating should drop me a line. I’ll be posting a more formal note about this on the site later in the week.
I worked on the art for this last year, the music is by the ARC Ensemble of the Royal Conservatory, enjoyed it mostly. Directed by James Murdoch and produced by Simon Wynberg and James Murdoch. To be honest I’m not entirely happy with how the art was animated, would love to have a go at that myself some time. But the short has been well received and is now officially up on the ARC site after it’s run on BRAVO. You can check out a full gallery of the art from this project here.
Been at the desk a lot this week trying to get ahead of myself for a change. So far so good. First things first, new pages are up on my comics sites…
And on RevolveЯ, Pin City continues as well…
How ya been? I’ve been busy, doing shows like TCAF always take it out of me.
Takes a while to get back into the routine and catch up. I warmed up by rebuilding my home web page here, like the new look. Really converted to WP in a big way [have five sites working on the platform now] and i’m loving the themes from graphpaperpress.com [this is one with a few small mods and so is this and this]. I’ve installed wpStoreCart, working on building one now, wondering what kind of things to sell? Would love to have some feed back from you all. I’ve got posters and some books to start, anyone interested in that? What other sort of things would you be interested in?
Ok, comics, comics, comics.
On Revolver, PIN CITY, with new lettering.
And that’s just to start!
The newest edition of Carte Blanche is up – I’m the graphic fiction editor there. For lucky #13 we are happy to present a special feature on CRISIS. There’s a lot of great stuff in the issue, including two excellent graphic fictions stories by some heavy hitters.
We had many other excellent submissions we couldn’t accept,
but i’m pleased to present a few of them on Sequential HERE instead!
That’s two pages of my own comics and 5 other short stories!
PS: My editor In chief says we’ve not gotten enough feed back from the comics crowd yet so if you check out the site, take a second to tell carte blanche what you think about about it by filling out their short readers’ survey.
Just transferred this from my camera, it’s The Blocky Thing from Dream Life. All to aprorately as I was walking to the cafe to enjoy some AC, i was listening to this, Anime – the philosophy of Japanese animation on The Philosophers Zone [2010 repeat]. Interesting show, and relevant to the sketch by the fact that The Blocky Thing is very much influenced by the films of Hayao Miyazaki.
for the next page of Dream Life – 52 – Want to do till 61,
the end of act 1 in the next week or so as pencils,
get tha chunk ready to ink and colour soon as the Busch project wraps.
i was getting into a nice groove
drawing roughs/story boards for
the Adolf Busch project.
Here’s some more of that.
I’ve been falling a little behind on Dream Life this month, sorry to say.
Such timing. Much needed big contract came in, so it’s been getting the lion’s share of my time along with major apt cleaning and a prolonged search for the new roommate! One can’t be too careful.
Got a trip coming up too, i’m attending FanExpo 2010, i’ll be at the TXcomics table, seat number P40B. And on a panel with a pile on of Canadian cartoonists, Unfortunately i won’t be going after all it terns out, too busy with work to spare the slack time for this, but check it out anyway if you can….
Comics Programming Spotlight: Drawing Ahead – The Future of Comics – Saturday @ 11AM in Room 205B - Aug. 16, 2010
While the art and craft of graphic storytelling remains unchanged, there are a variety of new mediums for creators to use to deliver their visions to the world. With the boom in mobile digital devices, paper and print are no longer the limit, and many artists are finding success creating and distributing their work in digital form. Join a panel of leading comics creators to discuss the evolution of comics distribution, the benefits and drawbacks of working with or independently from a publisher, and their current and future projects. A great forum whether you’re an aspiring creator, an established pro considering your options, or a fan interested in new ways of reading comics.
Panelists include: Ramón Pérez (Kukuburi, Butternut Squash), Andy Belanger (Kill Shakespeare, Bottle of Awesome), Cameron Stewart (Batman and Robin, Sin Titulo),Scott Chantler (Northwest Passage, Two Generals), Willow Dawson (No Girls Allowed), Max Douglas aka Salgood Sam (Sequential Spiltink, Dream Life).
Moderated by Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare)
I’ll have copies of Dream Life with me, only a few it looks like 30+, no budget it looks like to get more printed before the show unfortunately. Wanted to get a T done too. Been to busy to make it happen.
The ‘Day Job’ is pretty cool though. A Bravo!FACT grant project, a short partly animated illustrated story of the last three months the german composer and violinist Adolf Busch spent in Germany, and how he responded to the rise of the Nazi Party.
These are all built in animate-able layers, so Busch will bow the violin…
Trying to get as much of this done this week as i can, next week is going to be pretty intense getting Sequential to press. Go max go.
Like these two, facing set two count. After the long slow opening and establishing sequence for Charlie, i wanted some nice short bits to follow up with some of the rest of the cast before the next longer scene.
…man, kind of cutting it close for the trip. Getting there though, doing a dragon right now, in a novel pose i think, never seen someone do what we’re doing in this scene. Fun.
Can’t show you thought, sorry, secret stuff now, save for the big tada.
Took a few moments from some heavy inking work today to play though. Took a stab and composing the cover for one of my two projects for TCAF.
The text i laid-out a while back, didn’t know what art i wanted to use though at the time. So been sitting on it for the last two years. After i drew the page, it struck me it would be perfect for the job, need to shade it still for the interior, but might use it like this for the cover.
Want this to be ready for TCAF 2010, thinking probably a small run self published deal for now. Like this, looks handsome and would be easy to get printed well. Going to think on it for a bit but it feels right.
More inking tonight. This is going to be a fun project….
Ok, i just like making film clips. I’d like to make a film sometime. For now, making comics. A friend said they wanted to see what was going on better in response to the other inking clip, so this time i did just double speed. Not quite as exciting to watch but informational. Even for me, editing this noticed a lot of little things i should be paying attention to. Should analyze my technique like this more often.
More of these and work from Eek the cat, Sam and Max, Mangalatina, and Waynehead posted here on Flickr.
It’s important to remeber play time while i keep looking for work, as an old doodle reminded me the other day when we crossed paths by the river.
