100 Story Building’s Pigeon Post #2 just went out recently, with a bunch of silly things drawn by yours truly. Oh look, here’s some of them now.
Just a little something I’ve been working on with my friend Eva. Yes, there was a brief and piss was mentioned. I don’t just draw sick kids holding jars of piss for fun, ok. That said, it was a lot of fun!
Other proof I’m not dead and am still completely out of my mind, is to be found here.
As you may have surmised, I’ve been busier than usual of late, resulting in the extended silence. I’ll try to rectify that soon.
Here are a couple more cartoons, because I love you.
The idea for that last one came from me eating a banana. I was gesturing stupidly with it and the banana broke off and fell on the floor. Good on me.
I’ll write a real update with some actual news soon, but for now not a whole lot to report.
So, while on the hunt for work, I’ve had a lot of time for drawing and the like, so here’s a bunch of new stuff.
My favourite would be the new cartoon/1page comic, probably because it took so long. Enjoy!

I guess these two would be the ones that took the next longest amounts of time, following that system.
Technically this one took longer than those above, but I didn’t want to post it that size, so you can view it at your own discretion if it pleases you.
Continuing on the diminishing size theme, I shall now just post a link to the set on flickr for the sketches I did last night, while attending Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, Melbourne. Great fun, great venue, great model, great music. Pity my sketches aren’t so great, but there’s always time for improvement. Anyway, I highly recommend it if you’re of an artistic/burlesque bent. My sketches from the night here:
Other than that, not much to report. Um… Yeah.
I don’t know where I got this idea from. It could have been a dream. I sketched it up and, without much thought, inked it while watching tv, then added watercolours. It might have been a bit more coherent if I’d redrawn it, but like I said, I didn’t think too much. Enjoy.
I had one go at colouring this a few days ago and it was awful, so I gave up and posted the black & white. Gave it another crack tonight and I was much more pleased with the outcome. Enjoy.
Today was great. Amongst other things, I picked up an Ennio Morricone double CD. He did the soundtracks for a lot of Sergio Leone films; the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West (apparently the inspiration for the Star Wars music, with a theme for each main character) and several others.
I also saw Stranger Than Paradise, one of the few Jim Jarmush films I hadn’t yet seen. Well worth seeing. SBS comes good once again.
If/when robots and computers take over the world, what will they do with us obsolete piles of flesh?
In other news, I had a great birthday on Sunday and raucus* drinks on Saturday night.
Went cheap suit shopping today, so I can look all spiffy when I go to Canberra and hob-nob with dignitaries. Also for when I have real job, which, depending on your definition of ‘real job’, is either very soon or a long way off. I now have a dark suit, a cool tie with elephants on it, a black shirt (for looking badass) and, what every wardrobe needs; black velvet jeans.
*Slight exaggeration. We weren’t kicked out of anywhere, weren’t asked to stop shouting and didn’t get into any fights. Never do, but hey. The point is that fun was had.
I’m working on 3 new comic pages that I’ll drop here when they’re done. One mostly inked and the others just pencils. Should be up in some form next week. If I decide to colour them, longer. And just to prove I’m not lying:
Also, I have a new brush-pen-thing that should be a bit of fun. Saw it at the art supply shop in it’s crazy Japanese packaging and thought, ‘Why not?’.
