Getting ready for Baltimore

Working on a couple of commissions for the show but I can’t post those yet. Nor can I post, just yet, my contribution to the Baltimore Yearbook featuring “Blacksad“. So here’s a drawing I did of the house in which we rent our tiny, little “tree fort” apartment. (It’s the window at the upper left)…

… and I haven’t posted a “Smile of the Absent Cat” page for a while… so:

Becoming Frankenstein…

As Frankenstein assembles his monster we get the back stories to the body parts and individuals they came from.

An upcoming six issue series written by Mel Smith and Paul Birch, pencils by Craig Hamilton, inks by Larry Welch and colour by yours truly.

More info as it becomes available.

Back from Edmonton…

Twas the last days of summer. Perfect boating weather as we headed halfway to the arctic circle. Then, with added irony, we flew right over our marina:

It was a great show. Did some sketching…

…showed off my ‘Shuster’, was interviewed for the Edmonton Journal…

…and attacked by zombie fans…

…so, you know, the usual.

Coming up next:

Deck the Halls…

Here’s me with my Joe Shuster Award inducting me into the Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame.

And this weekend I will be showing off my plaque at table PR32 At the Edmonton Fan Expo.

Summerset

Although it’s officially still two and half weeks away, summer is setting.

(Not sure why I look so happy about it.)

Last weekend, at the T.O. Fan Expo I did a little monster-Gerebus head sketch in a copy of Greg Hyland’s Monster Atlas vol 2.

The little head was so much fun to do that I decided to draw a full figure Monsterebus:

Look for it in Monster Atlas volume 2, Part II, subsection C: ‘Stuff we just made up for the fun of it’.

The Big T.O. Show…

The convention is the largest of its kind in Canada and among the largest in the world with as many as 130,000 attendees… most of them trying to get on the escalator at the same time.

Thanks to Kevin Boyd and the whole crew for an extremely well run show!

Couldn’t resist…

This morning I saw an image of the “Baby Trump Blimp” and, of course, thought of this:

I imagine him singing, “You know I don’t care, what happens to you…”

Of course if you’re not familiar with Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ album, this will mean nothing to you. I keep forgetting how old I am.

Show starts tomorrow:

I’m at table P016 (see yesterday’s post).
