…and here are some sketches I’ve already done for the show:

I added the wall behind The Hulk…

…a Batcave computer with blank screens

for other artists at the show to add their characters to (cool idea)…

…and an American flag for The Captain.

Hope to see some of you at the show!

Emerald City Art

I’ve been working on a large, complicated piece lately; more on that later.

In he meantime, here’s a piece I did for the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle March 2-5, 2017

for their art book and auction to benefit the Children’s Hospital.

The theme of the book is ‘Monsters and Dames’.

This is the pen and ink on paper original which will be auctioned off at the show…

ruby-bw-small…and the computer coloured limited edition artist-proof print to be submitted as well.

ruby-colour-smallStay tuned for a list of upcoming shows for 2017.

Cats and Dogs

I got me a copy of Heavy Metal #283

from my local comic shop: Retro Rocket Comics (thanks again, Chris!).

Not sure when—or even if—I’ll get my contributor copies and I was very curious to see how it printed.

img_6953-1024x671Not too bad!

You know… if someone had told my teen-aged self that I’d be published in Heavy Metal someday, I’d have freaked out. If they then told me it wouldn’t be until I was 57, I’d have been dubious. And if they then said that it’ll be a story about anthropomorphic cats, I’d have had a good laugh and gone back to drawing my dragons and spaceships; the stuff that’s SUPPOSED to be in Heavy Metal.

This story, ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat’, is Grant Morrison’s  25-years-in-the-making heart-felt tribute to mad cat artist Louis Wain.

The complete story will be released as a 48-page hard-back volume some time after I get the rest of the script.

From cats to dogs…

The issue of Heavy Metal magazine with my art for ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat’ story should be on the shelves.

Now I just have to find me one of those shelves.

Seems like we just got home…

…and we’re off to Hamilton for the con.

At least this one is just a short drive away.

And! It’s being held at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

which is just off-the-scale cool.

Here’s me desperately trying to finish the first eight pages of

Grant Morrison’s ‘Smile of the Absent Cat’ before the deadline

under Elsa’s strict supervision.
