Daily Sketch Dec 21 - Mayan Apocalypse

So is anyone else a little disappointed that there wasn't an apocalypse? I have to say, if there was one, I think my boyfriend Ted and I could totally survive!

Daily Sketch Dec 19 - Oh Gandalf

So I was watching Fellowship of the Ring while I was sick, not because I love the movie, but because the controller was too far away to get and change the channel. While watching, I had the thought of how awful it'd be to have Gandalf as a school teacher. What a drama queen!

So Sick Lately!

This is basically how I have been feeling for the last week. Ugh!

Daily Sketch Dec 17 - Hug a Stranger

Well I haven't posted a sketch for a few days as I was to sick, but here is one now that I am feeling at least human. Recently I saw an billboard that said "Hug a stranger. We're all relatives if we go back far enough." That got me to thinking of how going up to a stranger and trying to hug them would actually translate in today's society. My conclusion was that it would translate...poorly.

Daily Sketch Dec 12 - Girls Are Scary

Have I mentioned I loved going to AnimeCon? I hope I get to go to Anime North this coming year as it will be strangeness times a million! One thing I don't quite understand is the big body pillows with scantily clad characters on them, although I couldn't argue with this guy's reasoning.

Daily Sketch Dec 11 - Not Anime Enough

So I experienced my first AnimeCon and it was quite a lot of fun. I really do love sitting at a table and talking to all the people that come up. Some are incredibly nice and fun to talk to, while others look like deer in headlights when you say hello. Then there are those that meet my pleasantness with insults. They probably don't mean it as an insult, but as my mother always told me...think before you speak. This sketch is one of those moments I had at the con this weekend. Insult a gay and all you’re going to get back is snark.

Daily Sketch Dec 10 - Treats from Strangers

The weekend was quite eventful and had so much to draw about (which will be filling most this week’s drawings).  Saturday I went to watch my friend Debra DiGiovanni do comedy at a cannabis friendly establishment that puts on a comedy show.  A gentleman offered us some evil looking purple liquid from a squirt bottle, which we politely declined because when he sprayed it into his mouth, I am positive I saw the spray come out as a skull and crossbones.

Holiday Sketch Dec 7 - Three Wise Men?

Today's sketch has a lot of elements of how my family vacations went as a child. Also, it seems to me that a moving star is the worst GPS system God could have used. Just saying.

Holiday Sketch Dec 6th - Holiday Showdown

Decorating for the holidays is always such an ordeal in an office environment.  They always make it seem like there is some ongoing war between the holidays and can never seem to come up with a compromise.  My solution is always to decorate for both holidays, which I believe makes me the Buddhist in this situation...always trying to keep the peace. HAHA

Holiday Sketch Dec 5 - Destruction of the Christmas Tree

Want to know what happens to your Xmas tree when you aren't away...Shenanigans, that is what! I've been told cats are so devilishly destructive at Christmas. Also, who knew they could operate parachutes? Your tree is DOOMED!

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Today's sketch is a PSA for everyone....Beware mistletoe, it's a trap! And that's one to grow on.

Holiday Sketch Dec 3rd - The Destruction of Snowkyo

Here is a little something I like to call "The Destruction of Snowkyo" These sketches are just getting weirder and weirder.

Daily Sketch Nov 30th - Lust

To make sure everyone remembers that Christmas is a time to think about Jesus…blah blah blah, I have decided to do a series of sketches for the Seven Deadly Sins (more because I think they would be fun, not for any real religious convictions). Today is the sin of lust…one of my faves. I might even be having lusty thoughts right this minute.

Holiday Sketch Nov 29th - Christmas Christ

Today I am back to a Christmas sketch. Ever wonder what would how trees celebrate Christmas? Now you know.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Daily Sketch Nov 28 - Bat for Lashes "Glass"

My post today is inspired by a Bat For Lashes song called "Glass". It felt very old school fantasy. You know, like you see on little girl's notebooks back in the 80's, or my notebook in the 80's.

Daily Sketch Nov 27th - Panhandling

Another "My life in Toronto" piece for everyone. This is a conversation I had with a "man of the street" outside the Royal York this weekend when I was at the Comic Con. It should start going around town that talking to me gets you snarky answers. Can we make that happen?

Monday, November 26, 2012

Grey Cup Tribute

Since the Grey Cup was this weekend and I was in the heart of it while at the Royal York hotel during the comic book convention, I was trying to predict which team would win. Here was my predicition, which seemed logical at the time, but came out completely wrong.

Daily Sketch Nov 26 - Snapshots of Toronto

This weekend I was at the Nov 25th Fan Expo comic book convention with my friend Anthony TheDemon Haley, selling our wares. Had a pretty good weekend and I want to thank everyone that came up to talk to us and especially those people who bought stuff from us. Although we had fun, there is always one person that gets you so perterbed you just have to draw a comic about the experience. Here is another little snapshot of my life in Toronto.

Daily Sketch Nov 23 - Catfight Club!

They're cats, they're fighting...It's CATFIGHT CLUB! The most pussy on pussy action you will see all year. WOOHOO!

Holiday Sketch Nov 22 - Thanksgiving on Earth 625

If turkeys had thumbs (or hands), things could have been so much different. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family. I hope you have a great day eating turkey and other delicious treats.

Daily Sketch Nov 21 - Hellboy

A little Hellboy for the daily sketch. Enjoy

Holiday Sketch Nov 20th - Chanukah Tribute

Today's sketch is for all those out there that celebrate Chanukah and don't feel like having a fat old hairy man creeping into their house at night. Just saying.

Conversations With A Call Girl

So this is a snippet of a conversation I had this weekend with a call girl while I was outside my office building. Toronto is so interesting on an early morning Saturday.

Holiday Sketch (Not Really) Nov 16th - Oh Crud...Monsters!

I was watching a lot of action movies this weekend so decided to draw something with a monster hunter. It is fun drawing monsters...maybe I will continue along this line once in a while. Tenticles on the other hand are not so much fun and hard to get looking right.  I will get more holiday oriented stuff soon...but I have all of December to really get into the holiday theme.

Holiday Sketch Nov 14th - Mime Prison

Do you suppose mimes have real Christmas or imagined Christmas (that is how I am making this a holiday sketch...see what I did there?)  All I can say is Mime Prison has to have the harshest conditions ever.  Free the mimes!  Wait a minute, I take that back...don't free the mimes!!!

Holiday(ish) Sketch Nov 13 - Light Saber Assembly 101

I didn't really have a good idea for a holiday sketch, so I just drew this while I was watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars last night. I love Star Wars and I would so love a lightsaber. Why can't science work on that instead of guns and missles?

Holiday Sketch Nov 12 - Santa or Satan? Hmmmm

So I felt like being a fundamentalist christian this weekend just to see how it know, walk a mile in someone elses judgmental shoes. I can see the appeal as over zealous self righteousness is highly addictive. Luckily my gayness was too strong and I reverted back to my normal self. During this stint of religious ecstacy it appears I drew the following.

Zelda - Link the Cat

Here comes Link to rescue his princess.  Is that how this game goes?  I am not sure since I have never played it, but I know it was a super popular game, it is just that I never got to own a Nintendo system when I was a youth.  I have always loved the designs of the game so thought it would be fun to do. Enjoy.

Fresh Bear Claws...MMMMM!

I have to give props to my boyfriend for giving me the idea for this picture. This is what he thinks of when he sees those delicious fresh pastries in the donut shop display case. He wanted a drawing of what he imagines and here is what I came up with. Maybe you will think twice about where delicious honey glazed bearclaws come from next time you order one.

Jon Snow - Winter is Coming

I realized I have not put up a bunch of pictures I did for the last FanExpo in Toronto. I did a flurry of work trying to get enough items to sell and just never got them up here on the site. I hope you all enjoy.

I recently started watching Game of Thrones and just can't get enough of the show. I haven't read the books which I hear are amazing, but I just don't have the time to invest at the moment. One of the characters I love is Jon Snow. Both sexy and brooding...not so much on the brooding, but hey, no one is perfect.

Holiday Sketch Nov 9th - What a Sexy Find!

I know I should have saved this sketch for Valentine’s Day, but my boyfriend and I don’t really celebrate that holiday because we show our love all year long (I can hear the jealous groans already, but it is true). So this is a tribute to him and my luck at finding such a rare and exceptionally funny person to spend my life with…not to mention cute. Love!

Holiday Sketch Nov 8th - Operation White Dawn

I have noticed winter's invasion of Toronto these last week or so. The cold has crept in and even the audacity of it trying to snow. Since I am a worshipper of summer and heat (much like a reptile...hmm), I present to you my call to arms to drive old man winter from our city! Operation White Dawn.

Holiday Sketch Nov 7th - Movember!

Since November is the month of the moustache, today's sketch is in support of Movember and all the baby staches being cultivated right now. I went for a 1970's hot cop stripper type theme with this one. Why? Because they had the best moustaches and, I must admit, I like hot cops...and tear away pants!

Holiday(ish) Sketch Nov 6 - Dawn Patrol

Ok so not so much a holiday sketch, but last night my fabulous boyfriend Ted Morris was hosting the hilarious comedy show Dawn Patrol (put on by the lovely Dawn Whitwell) and he let me run the sound board. My name was DJ Jazzhands Jeff and it was a blast. Now granted, it was just pushing the play button on an Ipod, but hey, dillusions of grandeur eh?   (If you haven’t checked out Dawn Patrol yet, look for it Mondays at the Comedy Bar in Toronto.)

Holiday Sketch Nov 5th - PSA: Beware Piles of Leaves!!

I remember as a child running and jumping into piles of leaves...what a fun time, at least for me as I wasn't the one raking said leaves.  If I had known the truth about what lies beneath some piles, I would never have been so foolish.  Beware!

Holiday Sketch Nov 2nd - The Plight of the Snowman

Today's holiday sketch was a bit rushed after putting together yesterday's late day post of the water dragon, so no judging, the content is still top notch. I have decided to reveal the secret behind how snowglobes are manufactured. You may never look at them the same way. Long live the holidays!

Musings of a Water Dragon

A late day non-holiday post for my friend David-Benjamin Tomlinson. After reading his incredibly funny blog, I had to do this sketch. I give you a boy, his water dragon and Tickle Academy!

Holiday Sketch Nov 1 - Halloween is Over!

Since I had so much fun with my Halloween sketch a day, I have decided to try and continue this trend by shifting over to the holiday with the longest ramp up...Christmas. It is the day after Halloween and time to put those skeletons & ghouls back in the closet. Enjoy!

Halloween Sketch - Oct 31st Happy Halloween

Here is the final sketch now that Halloween is officially here.  I am dedicating this one to my friend Anthony who is a big Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees fan.  Don't they just look so happy together, ready to do horrible mayhem?  Oh you guys, always getting into mischief!

Halloween Sketch Oct 30 - Supernatural

Tuesdays Halloween sketch is from another of my favorite tv shows, Supernatural.  Who doesn't love hot guys keeping the world safe for the rest of us.  Kick some demon ass boys, kick some demon ass!

Monday's Halloween Sketch: Hocus Pocus

Not sure if everyone remembers the movie Hocus Pocus (starring Bette Midler, Kathy Nijimy and some horse faced chick) but here is a Halloween sketch for everyone who not only remembers, but loved that movie as much as I did.

Run Indy, Run!

Just a little Indiana Jones for everyone to enjoy.

Halloween Drawing Oct 26

Here is today's Halloween drawing for you.  I was inspired by a couple of youths I overheard on the street talking about how to rid the world of zombies in the event of an zombie apocalypse. They suggested that the zombies be lured into spaceships and sent to another planet. Aside from the many scientific questions that statement causes (such as current rocket technology, cost/time to build said rockets and why to another planet...why not just into space and blow them up?), the first thing I thought of was,  "What happens if we send them to an inhabited planet." For your consideration...this scenario.

Halloween Drawing Oct 25th

This is the second Halloween drawing I posted and it is from one of my favorite TV shows...Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That snappy dressed girl could really kick some undead ass!

Halloween Drawing Oct 24th

I decided to start doing a Halloween sketch a day.  Since I am a bit of a nerd, this is what came out of my brain on day one.

Beware the House Cats of The Apocalypse!!!

"House Cats of the Apocalypse"
9x12 - Color Pencil on Marker Paper

BEWARE, THE END IT NIGH and their coming shall unleash a great apocalypse upon your household. Your plants will suffer, your food will be eaten, your dogs will be set upon and your favorite shoes will be ruined. They know no mercy in their relentless pursuit of chaos. Beware!

The Power of Christ COMPELS You!

9x12 - Color Pencil on Marker Paper

I had a stint where I was watching a lot of exorcism movies, as well as, the Food Network and during that time I dreamed of this one night. I can figure out the devilled egg and the priest, but why a cat. It seems to be a running theme in my art lately…hmm, but I can’t even own a cat. It’s all so fraught with meaning!

Come To Us You Salty Dawgs!

"Catfish Sirens"
11x14 - Color Pencil on Marker Paper

I have always had a real love for Greek mythology, so I started to place my cats as mythological figures.  This first one is of the siren sisters who sang many a salty dawg to the bottom of the sea. Plug your ears as they sing their sweet melody of love and longing or you could be their next victim.  (If you are wondering what they are singing…think “Ghost”.)
