It took me into November – BUT I DID THEM ALL YOU GUYS! With two kids and lotsa work, this was a flippin’ feat. All sketches done on a Moleskine sketchbook, using a mix of pentel brush pen, pigma liners, colerase pencils, pencil crayons and markers.

Inktober 2017 – The Adventures of Robson
This year I participated in Inktober again, but I wanted to try my best to do a drawing every day if I possibly could! I decided to make my theme about Robson, because I have a lot of fun ideas to draw when it comes to her! 🙂 ❤ Here are all 31 drawings inContinue reading “Inktober 2017 – The Adventures of Robson”
Last sketches of 2015
This October – December was the busiest on record, what with starting a new show at the studio, piles of freelance, and selling and buying a house…… so sadly my sketches took a backseat. I managed to squeak out a few, here they are! For Inktober 2015: A couple sketches in time for “Back toContinue reading “Last sketches of 2015”
Inktober 2014 sketches
Life has been CRAZY lately with lots of work [most of which I cannot post!], so I wasn’t able to do as many Inktober sketches this year as I would have liked. HOWever, I managed to squeeze out a few, here they are 🙂 A real disguise. [pencil crayon, brush pen] A doggy from Gastown.Continue reading “Inktober 2014 sketches”
Inktober comes to an end on Halloween.
What a great month of stretching myself and my pride, and getting encouraged by friends and other artists to just keep making art! Saw some AMAZING art created by artists I know and admire, wow. And what an awesome way to rediscover the joys of ink and paper. I will surely miss you Inktober, butContinue reading “Inktober comes to an end on Halloween.”
Trying an exercise I haven’t done in a while…. watching a favourite film, pausing it whenever I like the composition, and trying to sketch it as fast as possible. Since I am [more than] slightly obsessed with anything Hitchcock created, and it’s almost Halloween, “Psycho” seemed appropriate. These didn’t all turn out, but with theContinue reading “Sketching “Psycho”.”
Work has been really busy, and I can’t post the stuff I work on… so I am always trying to do a daily drawing of my own…. especially right now with Inktober! One is a retro-inspired suggestion by my wife, and the other is a film-inspired sketch from “Hocus Pocus”. I got some commissions toContinue reading “Halloween-inspired Inktober’s.”
Inktober-ing a Pumpkin Patch: Part 2
I decided to try a retro slant on these drawings…. my favourite style of illustration! But I have not done tons of these drawings myself, mostly out of intimidation. I am terrified to put up drawings and not be “good enough”. But I am learning…. learning so much. Mostly… I am learning to extend theContinue reading “Inktober-ing a Pumpkin Patch: Part 2”
Inktober, is Yoda.
Thanks to a friend’s suggestion that I do “something from Star Wars” – I went with a (Canadian) Thanksgiving-themed Yoda for my Inktober sketch today! Turkey, enjoy your!
Inktober-ing at the Pumpkin Patch, Part 1.
Sometimes I forget to extend the kind of grace I do to others, to myself. My beautiful wife always reminds me of this when I get frustrated after doing a drawing that doesn’t meet my own standards. I am really trying to get past that!! Sigh. Being a perfectionist artist comes with its’ struggles. TheseContinue reading “Inktober-ing at the Pumpkin Patch, Part 1.”
