The Alder Fork

Another post today?!?!?! weird I know, miss so many days and then a bunch in one.
Well I was making the rounds through the interweb, blogs and webcomics I frequently visit and such, when I realized I needed to add a link to mine.

My friend Peter Snow from days past, has recently been writing almost everyday a retrospective blog on his own loves of art in the forms of writing and music. Its a great read, and Pete actually is able to post almost everyday, much better then me.

This blog also coincides with a podcast also titled The Alder Fork, that Peter has started, ad is posted once a week.

Check it out at for the blog and the podcast can be found on itunes at

So check them on out.

monster creature prints

So if you frequent a little internet community of Facebook and happen to be a member of the Lovesick Design group, you might have seen these before.

This is a series of 20 small prints I did for the art gala I was involved in back in November. Each measures 6" x 7" and sells fro $6. The whole set sells for $80 (a savings of $40, wow!) and comes in a nice booklet (pics to come soon). If interested contact me and we can figure something out.

Soon these will also be optioned at 8" by 10" mounted and matted so that it just needs to be inserted in a frame. Just figuring out material costs and how that will translate over to a final price. I'll keep you up to date.

contact info

Also added my email address to the side bar.
If interested in anything I post let me know, shirts and other art is for sale. I can tell you availability or if it is even up for grabs...most objects will be listed at a price from now on if i think of one, but it never hurts to ask if you really like something.

And I fully encourage commissions! Individual new ideas are fully welcomed.

Thanks again for stopping on by!

promo stuff

Here are a couple promo shots I developed for some shirts that I have begun to sell.

I'm back!

The Art Gala was last night and wow, what fun! Thanks to everyone who stopped to talk and take a gander at what I was showing.

So to start back into the regular scheduling of posting I'm posting a picture of a toque that I had for sale. I really like it and so did some lucky individuals who purchased one.

sadly all sold out...congrats to those who got their hands on one!

Also added a link to the facebook group for Lovesick Designs and my art. I will be keeping better tabs on that as well.

till later.

hmmm.....been awhile

Ah so yes it has been awhile, no don't worry I haven't forgotten about my little corner of the Internet. So I know I posted earlier that I would be showing some progress work of my stuff that will be at Art Gala I am participating in this Sunday. Well that hasn't happened. Actually I've been hard at work trying to complete everything in time....oh and I decided to make it harder for myself by changing my ideas and goals last week.

Yes, yes poor planning I'm sure, but I'm really excited about my new idea. So I scrapped everything I had done and my ideas since November 8th (my last post) and started again.

But like I said I'm super duper excited for what I have going on....and feels a bit more me in the end. (hehe silly monster tricks are for kids.) So back to why I haven't posted...well my brain sorta exploded and this has been the result for the last week and abit (good thing Oscar is away for two weeks, hehe) :

so yeah as I said brain exploded. But some exciting stuff is in that picture. Some of my stock designs for shirts can be seen. Yup I will have five, count them 5! different designed painted shirts for sale, that will be revealed at the show ( these shirts will later go on sale by order, and oh yeah commissions for something individual are always welcomed!) some painted toques, a new pair of painted chucks and tons of supplies and drawing stuff.... monsters are hiding too, but you won't see them till the gala (hopefully).
Thanks for being patient and if you are in Ottawa this weekend come on down to the Comic Shoppe on Bank st. on Sunday November 30th for the art gala. See me and some other great artists and say hi!

24 hour comic challenge

As promised here are my nine completed pages from the 24 hour comic challenge I participated in last month. Yes sadly I wasn't able to finish 24 pages in the time limit, but i am happy with the amount I got done. Nine pages pencilled inked and grey toned is pretty good when you consider my brain died at 4am and decided it wouldn't work on anything creative anymore, and also wouldn't let me sleep. Ah well, fun as always, here is hoping for another fun time next year!

24 hour comic challenge - pages 5 - 9

war of 1812

um so this drawing is a result of an inside joke slash story...which I actually know little to nothing about...... but I was given a synopsis and asked for this drawing by my friend Heather. So here ya go, you get to see it as well. (I'm actually happy with how this drawing sorted itself out, hence why I posted it)

Hopefully when I get in on this joke and read the story I will post a bit of it to help you understand.

And oh yeah, I still consider 2 am on Saturday to be Friday cause I haven't gone to bed yet. Which means Friday's post is a okay.

Once again I've decided on something a bit out of the ordinary but silly fun,just like me.
Here are a couple progress shots of it coming along.

brain on vacation

well looks like my brain went on vacation and forgot I said I would resume posts last Wednesday. oops, sorry.

Any ways here is a new post.

so this is spook. He might look familiar, he's from a previous something or other...... but I like him, so this is a more finalized look, a bit bigger so I can scale him to any size. Now why would I want that to be...guess you'll just have to wait and see...I've got some plans for spook, big plans.
This is also an update for the Art Gala at the comic book shoppe here in Ottawa. It is scheduled for November 30th. so if you are interested in going let me know, and I'll get you a ticket...or head to the comic shoppe in Ottawa a get a ticket there...the tickets are free, so bring along some friends.
I'm going to post shots of work on my blog that I will be selling this year, as I progress through them and maybe even some previews of finished work.....spook will be there so should you.

update and an explanation

Hello all. Well it has been awhile since I last updated this blog. I feel an explanation is in order. As my previous post stated I've been getting over a flare up. This has been tough as I'm still working during the day, and other such daily routines, plus I did go to a wedding this past weekend (and thanksgiving is this Monday) so drawing has sadly been put to the side over the last little while. Right now these simple day to day tasks really wipe me out, and I've been catching up on sleep to feel better.

But on a happier note, it seems to be working and I have been getting back to my sugar filled happy go lucky self. So post should start up again next Wednesday.....this weekend is thanksgiving, plus my b-day, so I'm a bit occupied till then.

Other news includes my munny Icarus sold this week!

Also on October 18th I will be involved in the 24 Hour Comic Day ( ) event at the Comic Shoppe in Ottawa. This event involves the attempt to create a 24 page comic in only 24 hours. Super fun, and crazy tiring event that I've done once before. So come on down and see myself and other artists attempting this creative challenge.
Thanks for being patient...and enjoy turkey weekend!

sketchbook page

So I'm getting over this flare up, but still a bit fatigued from working all day. So I searched some old scans from a sketchbook and found this page which I enjoy. Hopefully I can transfer this type of image to some form of finished art.
