Sketches for Pledges: Sick Kids Hospital and FCB Day

Free Comic Book Day May 7th, 2011.

I sat with Arnold Tobago from Spent Pencils, as well as some writers from Kill Shakespeare, Marvin Law, and Kalman Andrasofszky.  It was rather busy with a 30 minute wait in line outside.

This was first occasion I got to draw The Flash, Catwoman, Iron Giant fondling Pikachu, Batman and Robin, Betty Cooper as Ariel, Adam West wrestling a giant squid, and Kick Ass.  Also posed for a picture with my first fan, whom I like to imagine was my illegitimate vaguely Eurasian 9 year old son.

I've come to realize my forte is drawing prepubescent girls with disproportionately tiny heads.  (hold ctrl while clicking to open images in new tab/window)

If you are in the neighborhood this Saturday, please come by the Silver Snail and make a donation to Sick Kids and get an awesome sketch from some of the artists there.  If you cant, Thursday, June 2 at RBC 320 Front St West, is the main Sick Kids Sketches for Pledges Fundraiser Event.  It was an incredible success last year, hopefully it will be just as good, if not better, this year.  Hope to see you there.

SQUIRREL GIRL at Toronto ComiCON Annual Fan Appreciation

Steve Ditko's Squirrel Girl

Last minute print I made for the Toronto ComiCon back in April.  Got some pretty good laughs, sales, and actual fans of hers out to the show!  Still learning digital colouring.  (Also pictured:  Monkey Joe, Tippy Toe, and unknown squirrel minion)

Fan Appreciation Day.  It was my first time drawing a lot of characters for people, like a druggy Aquaman, cutesy WonderWoman AND Batman, a sad Deathbird, and Carnage.  Also, a few friends for fun.

My First Magazine Cover

My first cover ever for anything!  The magazine publication, REAL, The Canadian Kid's Magazine.  Volume 7, Spring 2011, in this issue, I illustrated a classic story written, adapted and retold by Ken White, a Scottish poet, academic and writer, originally from his book, True Stories of the Top End, entitled Old Ma Hawkes and the Frog / The Revenge of Old Ma Hawkes.

The Aborigine tracker's shock and awe, re:  Arthur Rackham's Alice in Wonderland.

Please subscribe if you can.  More to come hopefully!  Possibly at a local library near you, all across Canada.
