Back from Baltimore

The 20th anniversary Baltimore Comic Con was a blast!

Thanks to everyone for a great show!

Here is my contribution to the 2019 Yearbook featuring Blacksad:

And a couple of commissions that I completed before the show and took with me:

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:

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!

Gone sailing…

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.

chapter 5 complete!

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.)
