Tool Time




As I pulled into the garage with a napping toddler in the backseat, I had a decision to make. Do I try to stealthily move her from car to bed and risk waking her up? Hells to the no, people. I know full well the consequences of waking a sleeping kid. I got in a good half hour of drawing the stuff in the garage, sitting in that car, before I heard a little sleepy voice from the back asking for a snack.

IF: Imagination

In my daughter's imagination, all her best things co-exist in one giant, fabulous rainbow bubble: cats, hair clips, moon and stars, candy, coloured bouncy balls, cupcakes, birds and ice cream.

They don't make 'em like they used to

This cement mixer is over 50 years old and still chugging away today, helping Chad and his dad lay the foundation for a new backyard shed.

Drawing TV: election debate

 
I drew the Chamber of Commerce debate yesterday. Pretty boring, but everyone stood very still which was exactly what I needed.

Cottage vacation

Just got back from a little family adventure. It was full of everything good: outdoors, ice cream, family and full contact card playing. Oh, and drawing.

Quack quack

These rubber duckies were being happily lined up on the coffee table until the pint-sized owner of said duckies was offered the chance to play with the coveted iPad. She moved so fast, that last little guy never knew what hit him. Out of the way, you.

Let's hear it for New York


My entry for The Sketchbook Project 2012 is finally done and on its way to Brooklyn, NY. From there, it'll be jet-setting all over the world before coming back to its final home in the Brooklyn Art Library. Want to visit it (and its friends) when it comes to a city near you? Check here for dates. I'm sure it would love to see you. Even though it's super famous now, it still remembers where it came from.

In the meantime, want a sneak peek? You can check it out here right now.
