Calgary Comic Expo

First, have a Pangolin in a Dinner Jacket beanie to start your day! What a dapper fellow.

I will be there, will you?

I’ll have more details as I get them, like a table number and all, but I don’t think I’m in artist alley this time around. For those of you wondering, yes I will be doing the ‘How to Draw Star Wars’ stuff again and I’m looking forward to catching up with all you Calgary folks again. I’m sad to have missed Emerald City Comicon.

I will be offering commissions to be picked up at the con, such as bust sketches, sketch cards, cuties and beanies, look for an announcement in April or May for that. I need to get through the rest of the semester first.

I haven’t been drawing, but I HAVE been knitting

Well, I have pages and pages of doodles that relate to my class notes (They help me remember and are mostly quite hilarious. I’ll scan some sometime for sure).

I very quickly knit a lobster for my brother, and I am in the process of making my own Moonkin pattern. I will need some test knitters for the moonkin once I’m done with it. I’d originally started by knitting a moonkin with an owl pattern from this Christmas’ ‘Knit Simple’ Magazine (I bought it because it has some adorable critter patterns) and while it is disgustingly cute, I decided to write my own from scratch. I knit the knit simple one as I went, so I do have a prototype moonkin that looks adorable, but not moonkinny enough for me. 😀

I’ll do more posting as things go on. For now, here is Francois the lobster. He is knit from this pattern and I kiiiind of messed up the increases/decreases and the placement of his feelers, but my brother thought he was adorable.

Pre con teaser post! Artwork!

As I have to finish a whack of my Clone Wars cards prior to going to the con, here is a teaser of art so I don’t forget to post it.

How Harold Got His Wings

This is the cover for the book! For the final piece I plan on spending about a month doing watercolour studies for painting the Northern Lights. Or I might do the entire book as my first fully digitally painted product. The book at the con has a colour cover, B&W innards.


2010 Convention Sketchbook

Full of a bunch of never seen before arts and a few old favourites.


Aaaand, finally:

Mini Magnets. These little tiny round disks have been painstakingly cut out by hand and are assembled behind a glass bead thing. I’m selling ’em for $3 or 2 for $5 because they are quite the labour intensive little things. I will have a larger version of the illustrator icons in my digital art gallery post con.

mini-magnetsI hope to see you guys there!

Awesome like a possum!

A new finished commission for you all to see. Awesome like a Possum!

Inked and coloured in photoshop.

What I did on my Summer Vacation – Icons

I ran a little free icon drive (Not on the website, sorry, did it on some more targeted social networking things) to figure out how much to charge for icons. The full colour ones were for people who tipped (One of the ones on the full colour sheet is not in colour because I’m waiting for reference), the mostly monochrome ones were the free ones.

Want an Icon? 100×100 or 150×150 icons – $10 for colour, $5 for tones. One character only. If the character or scene you want is complex, the prices will be more.



Now to move on to some bigger pieces of art, I am going to get a very rough Harold book completed for the con, working on that this weekend while I am in an Internetless area!

More Cutie Doodles

I was hoping to have had these drawn last weekend, but school and work came first. After a minor, yet, major mistake (Wrong stuffed animals with the cats!.. oops, yes, that certainly warrants a free redraw) here they are.


I take these cutie commissions every now and again. If you’d like to be on my cutie list, let me know and I’ll put you on the priority list the next time I open them.
