Drawings, Doodles, Sketches

Here's a page of doodles I did a little while ago. Splashed some tones on there this morning and figured I'd post it. Usually if I have a hard time getting down to work, I'd start sketching mindlessly just to get the juices flowing. Sometimes these doodles go a little overboard and I spend more time then I should on them but hey as long as I had fun right?

And here's some links!

Aaaaaaand.... we're back!!

What a wonderful trip to California. Thanks to all those that helped make it such a pleasant experience. Highlight of the trip had to have been cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway from SF to LA. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Dominic Bilodeau at Dream Works for giving us a place to stay when we first got to LA. He gave us a tour of DW and introduced us to Nicolas Marlet. One of our favorite character designers of all time. Boy, this man can draw!! Thanks Nicholas for sparing some time to talk with us and showing us your fabulous art.

Big thanks goes out to the Silver family for inviting us to stay with them during the last week of our trip. Heidi and Stephen were great to hang out with and their kids are just non stop entertainment! hehehe...

Alberto Ruiz - Always a pleasure to talk with you. Your stories and wisdom make it such a joy for us to listen to.

David Coleman - Thanks again for lunch and the tour of Cartoon Network. It was a real treat my friend!

Also shouts out to
Patrick Morgan - Always a pleasure to hang out with this man. See you in Calgary!
Sean "Cheeks" Galloway - Almost spit out my drink when Cheeks started speaking Chinese to me!! Multi-talented and full of surprises.
Lord Mesa and Marlena - awesome people with the horniest dog I've ever seen.
Jose Lopez - didn't get to talk too much this time but still always a pleasure
Justin Ridge - Always great to see our friend Justin. One of the nicest guys in the business.
Mr.Scribbles - great to meet you in SF!
Urban Barbarian - great to meet you as well. I promise to post more subway sketches :)
Dean Yeagle - Always a pleasure!
Ed Costa - Wish I could have stayed for more drinks but there's always next time!
Hope I didn't miss anyone!!

Here's a pic I did for an upcoming issue of Imagine FX. I splashed some loose color on top.

As much as we loved our trip to Cali, it's great to be home in Canada! Next stop will be Calgary Comicon April 29th. Hope to see you there!

So long San Fran. Hello LA Wizard Con!

Thank you SF Wondercon for such a fabulous experience! We met many new friends as well as saw some old ones! Can't wait to come back next year. Dinner at Osha was amazing... if you like Thai food I definitely recommend it.

Kei and I are just about to head out now... we rented a sweet little convertible and we're going to go cruise the coast. Next stop LA Wizard World March 16-18! Come out and visit if you're in the area.
