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.)

Super Mario Bros Legend of Zelda bed sheet table cloth! We were the envy of the show.

I’m still colouring cat pages. Here’s a couple sample panels:

cats continued…

After quite a gap (involving issues of non-payment and having to first catch up on commissions for which I did get paid), I’ve resumed working on Grant Morrison’s ‘smile of the absent cat’ story. I have the scripts for chapters 4 and 5 and am awaiting the final chapter.

Here are the pencils so far for the first 4 pages of chapter 4:

…okay… on to the next 4 pages.

The Pros of Cons

Here’s the best thing about going to all of these conventions:

Meeting fans of the book.

For example, here’s Jon:

He drove from Orlando to Tampa Bay to come to the show.

Here’s the sketch I did for him:

And here is Jon’s wall:

He had scanned the cover of ‘Flight’, printed it out in large banner-type strips

and wall-papered a 4 foot by 7 foot section of a room in his house.

I mean… how frickin’ cool is that?
