Muskoka in the Fall

Word on the Street
I exhibited for the first time at Word on the Street this past Sunday and had a great day! The weather was gorgeous, tons of people came out and best of all - I sold a lot of stuff! Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say hello.

Muskoka Landscapes
Other than working on my comics, I'm trying to do more artwork in general. Last fall I took a bunch of photos of the colours changing up north in Muskoka and have been doing some studies of them. Below is what I've done so far. I'm pretty happy with the results!

Muskoka Hillside - done in pen and ink.

Muskoka Landscape - done in oil pastels. I used to use oil pastels a lot and like working with them. I'm a bit out of practice with them.

Gerald Bull Graphic Novel
I'm still working hard on the graphic novel. Last week I started drawing it in earnest. I'm now on page 2 drawing wise, and on Chapter 3 writing-wise! Making good steady progress...

Kaiser Wilhelm II

Kaiser Wilhelm IIWork on the graphic novel continues. I have finished my reading and research and have started writing. I am just finishing up Chapter 2 now. I'm also still doing preparatory drawings (Kaiser Wilhelm II above, appears as a character in my Prologue), but will start drawing the actual book this month.

Last week Newsarama posted a review of my older minis and they said some nice things. You can check it out here.

I've also set up a Flick page with my drawings and illustrations, which you can find here.
