I’ve been hard at work trying to get the next eight pages of
Grant Morrison’s ‘Smile of the Absent Cat’ story done before the end of the month.
Here’s a sketch I did that kinda cracked me up:
We’re on our way to the ECCC…
…we’re at table L 11 in Artist Alley…
(Maple leaf marks the spot)
…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!
Only 30 days until the Seattle show!
We’re at table L 11 in Artist Alley.

Looking forward to a great show.
Oh… and I did a little drawing too…
a pencil portrait commission:
Here’s a little movie compiling all of the con and commissions from 2016:

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…
And here a photo Joseph sent of his proudly displayed Regency print:
You can order your prints at My Store.
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.
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…
…Sun Dogs, that is.
As seen the other day from the field next to our tree-house.
