Swirly Phoenix

I give to thee a new swirly that I had been putting off because the fire part was too daunting for me.


And, because I love colouring as I stated in a previous entry, here are some colour versions:

And one where I removed the black parts entirely, and decided I rather like the look:


More Colouring & Some Practice Clouds

Well, I’ve been working on getting an online store front going. I am anal for details, and so this is taking much longer than I anticipated. Every time I finish one step, that step leads to 3 new steps I didn’t realize I’d need to do.

I hope to have some better new stuff to post soon, but in the meantime, here’s a colour version of my Croc Eye quick sketch, and some clouds I drew because I’ve never drawn them before. All digitally hand drawn in GIMP.

First, the Croc Eye:

Now the clouds.

Missie and Leland Quick-ish sketch

Drawn in GIMP with Bamboo tablet. The dogs are from two separate photos, and I’ve tried to combine them to look like they’re standing side by side, so if you notice anything wonky in the proportions or shading, that’s why.

Some More Colouring!

I use exclamations so as to trick you into thinking this is exciting and interesting stuff!


I really like these colours, so you’ll probably be seeing more of them…

Well speak of the devil!

OK, a lot more, but if another artist can paint a blue dog multiple times, and another can just stick a big rope to a canvas, surely I can be forgiven for recolouring all my work in this colour scheme. (Wow that came out sounding a LOT more condescending than I intended… which is to say I intended none at all. OK, maybe a smidgen about the rope.)

Ali and Bear Portrait.

Wow, I’ve been neglecting you, haven’t I? Well here’s a drawing that took me eons to make up for it.

It’s graphite on bristol paper, and I actually intend on adding a background, but my favourite part is done so I’m impatient to post it! You’ll notice an incongruous white block… err sorry ’bout that, I had to scan it in two parts, and for some reason I clipped the bottom of the human half.

Bowmanville Zoo – Part 1

Having not felt particularly artsy in months, I’ve taken to taking photos instead. I’m not insinuating photography isn’t artsy, as I believe it is, but generally I don’t consider myself a good enough photographer to call it artsy when I do it.

This will not stop me from showing off shots that I think turned out well.

Wolves Again

What have you got there, and can we have some?
