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 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!
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).
Starts Thursday! Goes through ’till Sunday! I’ll be there! Shelley too!
We’re at table P016!!!

I had sent Grant a bunch of questions to clarify a few things in the script for chapter six of “The Smile of the Absent Cat”. He said that he’d ‘…spent so much time re-arranging the script that a few glitchy ghosts from previous versions survived…’ so once I have the final, final script I can start pencilling.
Meanwhile, here’s the finished page four from chapter five:

Only a week away!
(Still don’t know my table number.)
Managed to get a little sailing in but have cats and Louis Wain on the brain:
Starting on the sixth and final chapter of Grant Morrison’s ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat.’ As of right now, I’m still in the, “How the heck am I gonna pull this off?” stage. But that’s half the fun.

And let’s not forget:
When I know where my table is, I will post it here.
I’ve finally finished chapter 5 of Grant Morrison’s ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat.” Here’s a couple of the pages:
Without the word balloons, of course.
You’ll have to buy the book to read it.
I have the script in hand for the sixth and final chapter. I’m going to start plugging away at that now. It’ll be nice to finally put this thing to bed.

And comin’ up in three weeks:
Now, with added John Travolta! (Shelley’s very excited.)
…carefully colouring cat comics.
Next month, I will be giving up one of my precious few summer weekends (that would otherwise be spent on the boat) in order to attend:
So, come on down!
… of ‘the smile of the absent cat’.
That’s page one… seven more to go.
The inking is done for chapter 5. Here are some selected panels:
And here is page 8:
That’s about all I can show you without giving too much away.
Now, on to colouring.
