Today’s comic brought to you by the pursuit of knowledge (and the lack of something good on TV). FYI all of the questions were from today’s episode of Jeopardy!
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything, but I managed to make one painting over the summer. It was a commission for a friend; they wanted it to feature their cats and resemble a story book. I had fun painting the golden spine. I also tried a little dry brushing for a very primitive attempt at a Mary Blair look.
I’ve also been busy with school – I’ve just started my second and final year of a baking program. If you’re interested in checking some of that out, visit http://painaurama.tumblr.com/
I’ve been fortunate enough to be included in the current show at Grenfell Art Gallery in Corner Brook, Narrative NL. It features works by former students of the fine arts program at Grenfell, and what a fine group of fellows it is. There will be a closing reception in September.
You can read about the show on the gallery’s website, and view images on their FB page.
Here’s my contribution, On the Phone with Nan:
And here’s another painting I did earlier this year for the Flattering the Masters show at The Leyton Gallery, Dine-In Coffee Co. (after Hopper).
Here’s a peek at the cover of my collection of Halloween-themed comics I’ve made over the past couple years, with a new story that’s a sequel to Ghastly Attraction, the comic I contributed to the Polternice zines. I selfishly used a drawing by my niece Briar.
I’ve also got some small posters printed of the park drawing I did for The Scope last year.
Both will be available at Canzine on Saturday!
Next Saturday! Imma gonna be tabling at
Saturday November 1, 1pm-7pm, 918 Bathurst Centre, 918 Bathurst, $5
I’ll have my new-ish Old Manatee and the Sea, my two flip-comics Obsolete/Bygone and The Third Man/His Girl Tomorrow, and I still have a few old Werebrears minicomics left.
Plus some FAT BIRDS!
Maybe an extra little Halloween mini will show up too :O

I’ll have my Fat Bird mini, a Werebears mini, my cowboy/outerspace flip comic and my horror/romance flip comic, and a new minicomic about a salty old sailor that I’ve been working on for the past few weeks which I’m pretty excited about now. I hope to see a lot of folks!!
I’m drawing a Scott every day in February and posting them on Tumblr. There are 10 already!
Check them out over here.
Oh my gosh it’s that time of year AGAIN. And it was a lazy Saturday, so I had no excuse.
