The Grey

Here's some sample pages for a project I'm going to try and get together during some down time. I'm trying some new techniques with these pages, seeing if I can luck into something interesting.

Some new things I'm experimenting with: watercolour pencil, watercolour/ink wash, microns, and photographing clothing for textures. The textures are weird and I'm surprised how much I'm drawn to them. I photograph vintage clothing and for some reason it gives me a kick working with these old patterns in Photoshop.

Maybe it's not really working but I am having fun with it!

My Motion Comic

The folks at Plywood Animation did an awesome job. It's great to see my drawings come to life with voice actors and animation. I can't wait to see what they do with Part 2!

99.9% done

I gotta say I'm getting pretty excited. The pages for my first book are finally being sent off and I'm so looking forward to it finally being out there.

From what I understand the motion comic will be out shortly and the print version will follow shortly after (maybe in the Fall).

The Devilfish Project is a cyberpunky action thriller. It's got crazy bio-engineered super-soldiers, apocalyptic post-environmental collapse world, dangerous bike gangs, high-powered weaponry, girls with tattoos, deadly bounty hunters, cities under water, intrigue on distant space stations, hot genetic marvels, sharks with laser beams, uh I don't know the President of the United States, and more. But you probably shouldn't hold me to the sharks thing.

It's a creator-owned project by myself and the awesome Byron Jackson with whom I worked on Candy From Strangers on DC's Zuda website (sadly now gone). It features the actor Max Ryan (my favourite role: Pachenko from Death Race).

Bay-la-Pay by *3PU on deviantART

...something I'm trying to nail down a style for. Colours are preliminary and suggestive, not sure what I want to do yet. Figure I should add a lot of scattered bodies to it...

Neptune On Duty by *3PU on deviantART

This is a piece I donated to Newf Friends Dog Rescue for their charity fundraiser. It's a drawing of one of my newfs Neptune standing watch as a lifeguard undistracted from his duty. Neptune does water rescue work and loves pulling boats to shore and swimming lines out to people in the water.

It was auctioned off at the event and the winning bid came from an online bid from Illinois. Thanks to everyone who bid on all the donated artwork--all the money goes to helping Newfs in need. The whole event raised $20,000 so the fundraiser was a whopping success!

Scrap Paper

Just a bunch of crap really, but I like the winter mitt with the chicken face and the logger with the big moustache...

No Bike!

With 2 bikes in the shop during what is probably the best Spring weather in my life all I have is this video:

Happiest dog in the world.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. Here's some photos of the family trek to get our tree.

No dogs were harmed (despite the long face) and many more trees will be planted in the Spring--safely back from the beaver lodges. I wonder if putting the word beaver in a post will affect my hit count?

Prepping the cart

Off we go

The right tree (already in the path of beaver destruction!)

Loaded up (try smiling Neptune!)

Back through the paddock

Best Birthday Present Ever

Well here it is...the best gift a person could give me.
This was what my wife got me for my birthday--she commissioned a painting from Quebec artist Dave Dowbyhuz of my much-loved dog Neptune.
Dave has painted him out on the lake doing some water-rescue work. Look at that determination in his face. Dave did a beautiful job capturing him perfectly--there's no doubt this is my boy! I love the colours and the way Dave painted the water. His work is simply amazing, he truly has a gifted hand. He has accomplished the impossible: I can stare at the eye of this painting and feel the connection that I know so well with the subject. His portrait is flawless.
I wanted it in my studio so I could have it with me while I worked but I'm apparently supposed to share it with others. It's up on our family room wall where I see it every day and it reminds me how lucky I am. I can't even put into words what such a thoughtful gift means. And I have to thank Mr Dowbyhuz for going above and beyond to help her keep this a secret.

Tractor Safety 101

This is the key fob for my new tractor. Apparently I'm not supposed to run children over. Good thing I looked at the fob. On the other side it seems to be telling me that women and children should be locked up in the house where they won't be tempted to run in front of me.

Husqvarna 1, Trail 0

Neptune runs on my new trail!

I've spent an hour or so the last few evenings out in the bush cutting trails for my mountain bike. It's pretty hard but rewarding as you make some progress. I've cut about 1200 metres in and I'll have to go back and chainsaw out some of the fallen trees. I'm getting the feeling I'll be spending more time cutting trails than riding them this year. It's all an investment for next season.
Had a bit of a Blair Witch moment late last night when I ran out of gas and the sun had gone down. Had to walk back in the dark without a running brushcutter to protect myself from bears which I was pretty sure had me surrounded.
